I was going to make a similar comment...then I saw the overhead view, and decided that a person could sit there and simply be surrounded by them.

Ha, yeah, the deer just can't move his head from side to side without taking the rider's head off.

So gorgeous !! Really looking forward to them for sure. I have many ideas on how to go about using them in images and texturing options. I can also see tiny little woodland fairies flitting about the branches.
Love your imagination.

Looking really really good!! EEEp on the leaves!! I hope that doesn't take too much time!

I worked up some Crocus textures yesterday in Lisa's Botanicals thread thinking you could parent them to the antlers if you wanted to since they are rather smallish.

If possible, an option to easily hide and select portions of the antlers and leaves ( so they could be thicker or more sparse depending on your needs) would be wonderful.
How bout this. The front of the Fantasy Antlers are the White Tailed Antlers. So we could hide the back parts of the branches, leaves, and hide the Fantasy Antlers and use the White Tailed Antlers, and there you have this option.

LOVE IT!!! yeah, then you can get antler specific with the different breeds of deer. Love the option. Now ......... wondering how to go about doing the crocus flowers on there and if they are going to be alright size wise. I don't want to clutter up Chris' thread with these, but you can see more colors and variations in my Lisa's Botanicals Thread. 3DL and very rough on the textures.

Oh those are quite lovely NA.

We should get you the White Tailed Antlers so that you can play around with them. Fantasy Antlers too. Or are you wanting me to integrate them.

Up to you Chris. What do you think would be easier? It could be kind of nice to have the load with the antlers. Sure if you want to hand them over to me once you get the mapping done I will see what I can come up with. I'll take some photos of the ivy plants we have and work with something on the leaves. You can change the scale on the flowers too or incorporate the different models.

However, if you parent them, you could also use them in different areas of the deer besides just the antlers like in the sculpture images also incorporating Lisa's A Curious Proliferation for the mushrooms and Curious Grasses and Vines.

Hmm ......... need to practice how that will look with the horse and the Curious elements. Something similar to this lol not green and a deer.

Lisa also has several different crocus models so you could show the flowers in different states of bloom on the antlers for some variation.

I also have some thoughts for some metallic type shader/textures on the antlers that would couple well with Laurie's silver/white whisper elements.

Are the antlers going to 2 separate items, left and right so just the left or the right could be loaded, or will the pair be one item, I would love to be able to load them separately?

Hadn't thought that this would even be of value, as a L and R load.

Love these options NA. The Crocus is very nice. Let's see if we can get some maps on this antler set first, and go from there.
