Look At These Lovely Desert Succulents

Prickly pics

This is less of a news post and more of a sharing something I thought was cool post - look at these desert succulents 3D artist GameDevZombie (I only know her Twitter handle) is working on at the moment. I saw them come up on my Twitter feed this morning and I keep going back to them.

She works over at Brainbox3d on those environment and asset packs you can buy for use in particular game engines. These are for a desert-themed environment and there's something about the colours and shapes here I find really pleasing. I think I like them even more because they're divorced from an actual environment in these pictures. That might sound like a strange thing to say given they're supposed to be seen within an environment but what I mean is that I would totally buy the above and below images as prints with those colours and shapes against the plain grey background.

The header image in particular feels like a modern game-inspired reworking of botanical illustrations like this one:
