A study of a close-up forest scene containing objects made of various organic materials and textures. This piece was a first-time exploration into creating organically based textures within Arnold and Mari. Certain aspects posed interesting challenges, particularly the mushrooms, which are fungi and don’t decompose in a typical fashion. Acorns became a fun object to research and see how scratches develop on the surface as the colors dull and crack.
