This looks really cool. I actually really dig the idea of a "Mech Tree", very creative.

Thanks- In my mind the gathering of energy from the sun via solar cells is very much like photosynthesis. I envision these mechtrees folding into the ground during bad weather or something.

I totally agree with telecaustic! Very cool indeed!
Make more! Maybe you culd do a book on mech-plants for... uhhhh.... mechologists?
Maybe they culd be taken care of by a biological caretaker... just to bring some irony in to it. :p

How about a high tech child with wings or a hover belt who flies from tower to tower, transfering AI RAM chips (containing optimal light gathering techniques) from one tree to the other ?

In effect, "pollinating" them.

overall nice image and design...the sky truly brings out a certain mood :scream: to the whole thing. one crit though, i think those low floating clouds ruin the entire picture. their sharp edges...or maybe they're just suppose to be like that, personally i think that picture would rule without the litle sharp clouds:surprised:

I totally agree about those clouds... It was a flamigo experiment. Should I lose them completely?

I personally would rid the picture of the clouds, unless...if you can soften them up, basically just try and make them fit into the pic, they stand out too much. Just my opinion, the picture still kicks ass!:drumrock:

Cool pic! Definetly has some style. About that ninja page.... "The ninja's boner smashes the entire restaurant. Every single one of the pirate's boners explodes while making a whistling sound."
:D
It's so childish, but I friggen choked when I read that!

I like the clouds. They give the whole image a non-computer graphics feel and remind me of water color painting techniques. The non-cgi feel has more impact given that the subject matter is techno-mechanical trees.

I like the clouds as well. Keep em´ just do more of them!!

BTW- went to your homepage and I got the wallpaper for this very picture... well... the blue one.
Now if that´s not a complement I don´t know what is.:surprised

Make More!
