Here I will post PNG tree lines that I've made. To be used to fill out your backgrounds.

I have meticulously removed the sky, saved as PNG and projected to a curved surface in SketchUp. All you have to do is click "Render"
 
PREVIEWS:
 
[PREVIEW]
 
SAMPLE SKETCHUP VIEW:
 
[curved_treeline_2]
 
Due to a recent episode of theft, these tree lines will now only appear in the SketchUcation shop. Somebody has decided to distribute my work on their website without permission. 

While these tree lines were made as a gift to the SketchUcation community, people have taken advantage and used this product to gain more hits on their own websites. The tree lines have been downloaded tens of thousands of times. 

Nobody asked me permission to distribute and host my work, I was never even credited as the author. 

The person involved even made a "Part 2" to my curved tree lines, again, without permission. The "Part 2" is of inferior quality with substandard masking. I do not want to be associated with that website or the "Part 2" collection of tree lines that I did not create or condone. The "Part 2" was made to look like I had produced them, using the exact same presentation, fonts, colours etc. However, this is where the similarities end. 

I believe it is deceiving to the community to release this "Part 2" because of the vastly inferior quality. I do not want my reputation to be tarnished by such inadequate work. 

So...

1) The only places where you should ever see my tree lines are in the SketchUcation shop and in the Podium Browser. 

2) If anyone sees my work elsewhere, please notify me immediately and I will be very thankful. 

3) If anyone would like to distribute and host my work, please just ask. It only takes a minute. 

Sorry to make a post that highlights this theft problem, but I can't tolerate someone taking advantage of my good nature. 

Thanks and take care,

Oliver Shea

podium 1.7.1 render. Pure PNG, no clipmaps or anything like that. It looks dark because the sun is shining from behind. 


birds eye with sun in front:

I think its a good idea to post this one too here. A winter tree. Its an alpha background (no dithering) render. A blender tree model (~300 k poly). Nice for close to camera situations. A hi-def transparent png, but you have to create the face camera model. No halo effect.

It only does appear in V2, not your fault.

I think there is a sliver left on top, which would show in V2 but not in V1.
