Dancing Tree

I have tried to make a tree in TC with inspiration from a picture taken of Carol Fraser found on Visual Funhouse.
(Its plagiarism, but I have written to Carol Fraser and sent her copies of the pictures and she liked them and has given me permission to do the pictures).
The pictures I have done are 80% in TC and the rest in Photoshop. It’s done with just the standard rendering because I must learn and practice more on how to use material and light effects, but it is fun to use a mix in TC and Photoshop. My first thought was to make a hole wood with lots of trees, but I concluded fast that my screen is to small (Ha Ha).

Looks great Sven. Took a lot of effort to do that, I would imagine.

Great to see someone else pushing TC to do creative things (the human form and trees are not easy in a program designed to draw houses and machine parts) well done.

Thanks for comments.

And nice to see all the nice work you all doing in the gallery.

And yes it took a lot of effort to do this tree and branches.
I used circles along polylines and placed them with “Profile Along Path” and the sweep tool. Revolve, deform to point and lofting.
