The Woods Of Marathon Caye, the sim where Taylee and I call home, (and which is currently open to the public,) a major influence is what I see in RL, and is usually an attempt to recreate that. Though I did not discover them on my own, I have an appreciation for the design of the trees of Botanical at Straylight for that very reason.
These trees are amazing, with their versatility, well-drawn textures, and attention to detail. We've dotted The Woods Of Marathon Caye with many of these trees, to denote the change in the season from summer to fall, so if you haven't come to The Woods Of Marathon Caye in a while, and have a yen for the change in seasons, be sure to come on over. You're in for a treat. I often find myself designing with a self-serving mindset, which fortunately seems to match Taylee's perfectly. So many times during the day, rather than log out, I'll just sit myself down on a bench or under a tree and watch the leaves fall (Yes, Botanical trees do that as well in their autumn colors.) Come On Over and enjoy the autumn at The Woods Of Marathon Caye.
