What's that dark bat skeleton sort of thing hanging from the tree?

thanks for the cash Chris! :o))

the willow tree makes gnarly bits like that sometimes towards the ends of branches.
Sweet use of the green for the willow.
Sweet use of the green for the willow. How did you make this one btw? Very intrested.

thanks Kerra :o) [and thanks Duracel for the border, green is my favorite color]
well it's several layers, you probably figured that though ;o]

first i blended the bg... then added the big branches on a seperate layer... on a layer beneath the big branches added muted colored smaller branches and leaves... then on a couple layers above the bigger branches i added the closer smaller branches and leaves, and brighter leaves on their own layer... then back to the bg layer and added a suggestion of sunlight on water to give distance... then above all that added a dodge layer for the shafts of sunlight and blurred the rays just slightly... then flattened all the layers and used the smudge tool on a small percentage with a very small brush, just here and there to smooth minor pixelated spots.

I just give the colorscheme i got from Greg. ;)
