Hi lads,
on my last visit to pet shop where my gf is working I noticed model of ruins intended as a decoration for aqarium and this image sprung to my mind, so I had to go through with it right away :)
I tried to imitate unkept tree by the ruins in the countryside, still some work to do though as I will add some more mosses and "weeds" soon.
As I want to keep the tree wild, I need to find the fine line between it looking like a bush and a wild tree.

That would be neat! Do you intend to make the ruin like the one you posted?

No, I started to play with photos erasing the background to make the actual creation shine without disturbing elements, before I have my setup for taking the proper pics ready.
