This time it's one of the giant tree groves, where the snaking trees that form most of the forest are reduced to mere epiphyte while the dominant plant are trees of gargantuan proportions with black, spiny bark, leaves of all kinds of colours and double rows of orange-glowing patches. The patches flare up in regular pulses that travel upwards, accompanied by a loud, deep pounding that sounds like a heartbeat. A pretty horrible place to sleep in because of the soundscape.

Actually, they almost look like the bydo trees from the forest level of R-Type Final where you fight the Cerberus model ship as a boss that has been sealed inside one of the trees.

Interesting. I neither played the game nor saw any screenshots of the level, my source of inspiration was mostly the Muto cocoon mixed with trees decribed in one of the Witcher short stories.

The muto forest

Pretty much, with some addition of scenery described in a Witcher short story.

Oh its from Witcher. I didnt know
Ramul's avatar
No, I meant it as this scenery being inspired both by Muto coccoons and Witcher scenery. The depicted scene itself is from something completely different.

Creative. I need to sey. It look really in style of Giger and the alien stuff. Its an complement btw.

I do not mind my stuff getting compared to others' works at all, at worst it amuses me by me comparing the similarities and differences between them, at best it points me towards material I don't know of but very likely might enjoy.

So the trees are like muto coccons then? Awesome!

In appearance only, no giant creatures suddenly going to burst out of them.

Ramul's avatar
The wood of the trees of the forest in general have been brushed over briefly in the story, but the resin is orange and glowing.

A great place for anything but sleeping. I'd be mesmerized - there's a reason I don't have a lavalamp despite loving them. I'd never get anything done staring at the things. This forest would break me. :XD:

Then it would be wise to go into the fungal groves with their deathly silence or the native Evernight forest pockets.
