shading tests in the tree

just making tests, putting leaves and twigs on the tree. It's too heavy to render still... =/ probably I will only use this in details in shots that happen on the branch. I rendered a top view of the leaves though and used it as a texture and put a lot of half-circles textured w/ this leaves in alpha around the tree. It was reaaaaaaaaaaaaly uggly, believe me!!! O_o   anyway, it didn't work at all, so I need to try smthg similar w/ planes or distorted planes or whatever. well, here are my tests!

  1. adding a complex texutre to these leaves in the color channel will be too much to an already complicated visual element. I like them as flat color... and they should probably all be of the same color.
