Came across these beautiful plant and foliage brushes and decided to design some foliage. Using brushes so liberally can really help in creating good backgrounds related to nature, environment, tourist brochures, adventure camps etc. Each image created by the brush was kept in a separate layer and then colours/levels changed to give a little depth to the image. Also I have tried applying texture to some plants to give a slightly realistic look to the trees. And yes, the lense flare given to create a sunset effect.
I could have done with a twitter bird sitting on one of the branches. Afterall, in this jungle of cyberspace, one can hear a lot of tweets!
