Tree texturing

I have just been looking at the texturing of the tree.  I know that we had written off using the wood texturing that is built into Maya quite early on in favour of a UV Mapped solution; but from studying it at closer glance, I have found that it actually has quite a nice, rough texture and could fit well in our piece.

Take a look at these two images, compare them and let me know which you think works better.

  1. okay james in my opinion your right and i like that the texture has a african art kinda feel. However i do feel we should lighten the colour of the tree slightly, looking at african trees they seem to be dry and light yellowy brown if thats even a term :)
