This tree was completely replaced.  Honestly, it was too small for the pot, 
which violates certain principles of bonsai.  It may reappear in another 
scene, however, as there are some things about that tree that I really 
liked.

Thanks!  Bonsai is, of itself, very dualistic.  The ideal bonsai would 
arguably look like a miniature of a full size tree, so I attempted to 
achieve that as well, while still keeping certain other cues, like the 
larger-than-normal leaves.

Bonsai purists may hate me for this picture, however, as the introduction of 
miniatures into a bonsai is most often frowned upon.  Of course, "live" 
miniature people might be ok, if the Japanese had some handy.  ;-)

Thanks for refreshing (F5) my memory. Why did you change the texture of the
table? I liked the wood that the legs were made from. 
The new tree is more pleasing to the eye. Out of curiosity I differenced the two
images in psp. I liked the result.

I'm pretty sure I didn't change that.  Any differences are probably due to 
changes in the lighting.

The front leftmost leg, as you look at it, looks quite different, to me.

Wow.
That's great.
Your bonsai looks more real than my real ones are looking. ^^
I love it!
