    By middle layer do you mean the branches or the camo fabric?

    The branches and twigs don't have a natural placement look to me. More angle to them would help. just my .02

    I like the Idea Fred---
    I think the way the branches are placed vertically makes it look artificial when tiled. Maybe place them at more of an angle.

    Okay, here are the branches rotated and a slightly different treatment to the camo fabric. Single tile and tiles versions.

    Are we there yet? :rolleyes:

    The brighter yellow leafs on the top and bottom where they tile
    would look better if it was changed to a darker color :wink:

    I think you need to get rid of that bright leaf and that vertical branch.

    Much better. The vine maple leaves still look too patterned. Needs to be a bit more random appearance. Ya, I know, not so easy to achieve in a tile. Maybe a little varigation in the vine maple leaves might subdue boldness. Some slight redness in one of the species and a darker green in another might help. Are the species colorations all matched to one season for realism? Just a thought.

    I agree about the yellow leaves, I don't think you should have singular elements with such sharp contrast sot that when tiled, they form a row or column of contrasting elements. Your first post was actually much better in this regard, though looking a little contrived, but better mix of color.

    I think you need less bright colors,more bark,some oak leaves and maybe some brownish colors.

    Thanks for the input everyone. We ended up with a series of eight varied images .... different bark, different camo fabric, different leaf color, each in the same layout. They will be part of our upcoming Plotter Art™ Seamless Texture Tiles Volume Two soon to be released. They will also be available at ExpressClipart.com in the near future for individual purchase and download.

    Attached are low resolution versions.
