Ryan's Notes:This was my first attempt to craft more detailed Vue d'Esprit trees by building the branches themselves out of individual Vue tree models. I edited them in the Solid Growth editor to get them to bend the right way and then I places them around a central trunk.
The effect was pretty convincing, except in this case I didn't set up the "branches" so they all intersected the trunk. This precluded a winter version of this scene because the disconnects would be visible. Perhaps I will come back to it and try to work something out. I have an autumn version here and would love to try a winter scene someday.
