I can't say all of us Southwesterners use dead bushes for trees, but your creation is very accurate. xD I took one look at it and immediately assumed you've at least been to the Southwest, if you don't actually live here.

Very, very nice. It really captures the essence of desert life and the beauty that comes with it, with some Christmas spirit to boot.

Thank you, Gabrielle. I did this one year as an outside tree. I wanted to use tumble weeds but to my dismay they were loaded with thorns.

Yes, I am very familiar with the Southwest. This was just a creative endeavor. I am glad you like it.
My next scene will be even more accurate. ;)

Yes, Jena, the lights have to be rendered. If you need like similiar to these, :iconiws-stock: has rendered lights in their Christmas renders folder.

Thank you for the comment. :heart:

I don't have Poser (can't afford ><;) but I have DAZ... don't know how to use it too well yet though. :D
I used some of :iws-stock:'s tree lights last year for my Trimmed Tree piece.
