Since last post more textures have been completed as well as other things. The grass above uses empty texture space for the leaves in the trees. The idea for the whole thing though is really just to hide the roots going into the ground. Make it feel more real.
I also started work on finishing the plaza for the scene. The plan here is to create some grunge textures and garbage/debris models to populate the scene. Make it more interesting. I have also started creating trees for the planters around the obelisk
Another thing added to the trees are hanging lanterns. I am still wondering if I will do the scene at day or night however.
