The bark texture is looking great! There's even a Mignola swirly on the shoulder. And I love the uplighting in the last shot.

Looking good!
Texture makes it come to life!
I love the lighting too...in the last pic it looks like Jack Skellington with the 'angry/evil' expression.

Thanks Charlie, and welcome, from one struggling animator to another ;)

Ahhhh Mike....thanks for the compliments, but.....its a tree, y'know? Reproduces by budding or cloning or seed-dispersal (heh) or something...so it can't be female, I mean, its a tree...ok well actually its a big hunk of clay, but let me pretend....I assume you're slyly referencing the gaping maw...not vaginal in any way if thats what you're implying....nope, no sir...in fact, just to prove you wrong, I'm gonna have to give him a penis now....a big honkin' tree schlong, just so folks don't start to think I'm weird or something ::;P

I did think (s)he was starting to look a bit like Hellboy...

Heh heh... yeah, actually it's kind of an innie and an outie at the same time. So it's a hermaphroditic angiosperm.

scary!

Yeah, cus.... THAT wouldn't be weird or anything! Hey, you could call him Woody.....

Woody the Hermaphroditic Angiosperm. There's another joke to be made here, I'm sure of it, but its just not coming to me...maybe a tagline:

Woody the Hermaphroditic Angiosperm. Repopulating the Earth one tree at a time.

Woody the Hermaphroditic Angiosperm. It's wood, it's pissed, and it's got both parts.

Woody the Hermaphroditic Angiosperm. What's it doing with that lumberjack?!?
