Toadstools in the Forest


The Week 9 theme for The Nature Academy is a misty forest scene.  I deviated from the tutorial quite a bit to get the look I was after, I used my own backdrop and made my first seamless texture for the ground.  The toadstool idea came from a family walk a couple of weekends ago, the reference photo is below.

Edit:  A slight tweak to the foreground plants. Original is below.

Here is the reference pic for the toadstools:











For my fellow students at The Nature Academy,  here is the backdrop image and ground texture.
