[Arcadia Rework] Trees & Bushes


With Arcadia's rework, we want this Arcade Mode town to feel different from the rest of the world, so almost all graphics will be made more or less from scratch, rather than reusing old sprites. This means not only the buildings, but also the greenery needs to be remade.

Previously, we looked at making new paths and grass decorations (where we did reuse a few flowers: we've not yet decided if we want to remake those as well). Today, let's look at the trees and bushes!



Above is a few of the sketches I made to get an overall concept of what the greenery of Arcadia could look like. In the end I thought it would be cool to use spherical shapes for the trees and bushes. First up, a bush:


Next, using the newly created bush as a base for creating a tree (with some edits):


These trees and bushes are made so that when you put them next to each other, they kind of blend together, making it hard to see where one prop ends and the other begins. We feel this will create a cool effect when creating small groves of trees:


Next, I made another variation of both the trees and bushes with a more oblong shape, in order to have some variation in the greenery:



And since I like these new bushes a lot more compared to the ones I made for Arcadia previously, I went ahead and upgraded the shrubbery around the well, using the new ones as a base:
