Hello, this is my first real forum post, so hopefully everything will work alright.

I have these images currently privated on Photobucket, so if that ends up being a problem tell me,
and I will either turn them public or move the images to DeviantArt.

All of these concepts and color schemes were based off the Deshaan Plains. They can work in other regions,
but I would probably rework the color scheme and the descriptions for a few of them if they are used elsewhere.

I provided 3 color variations per design to provide more options. They aren’t numbered in any particular way. Just use
whichever one you think suits the theme more.
 

Trees/Replacement Pines:
 


  Undergrowth:

 

  Underwater Plants:

 

Ground Cover:
 

Bushes:
 

  Cave Plants:

 





I plan on contributing to animals and structures as well, but that will take me a few weeks to even start working on it.
If you want to reference a specific color scheme just provide the information like this: “Shidra #3” and I will know what
you’re talking about. If you just want to reference the design in general, you can just use the name itself without the number.
Thanks for taking the time to check these out, I appreciate it.

Hi Chrymzon, just at a glance, many of these look like great plants. I’m not sure all of them fit for the Deshaan, but some of them would. I need to take a closer look at these to give you more detailed feedback, but it will take a few days until I can do that.

Does: concepts, textures, youtube vids, admin stuff e.g. PR, handbook, assets, small website things. Activity level: wildly unpredictable. Still active. Find me on Discord.

I appreciate it, and feel free to take your time. I'm happy to contribute. I figured I would try to push the boundaries as far as I could go, even though I have yet to learn everything about the project. I wasn't sure if I should repost this into the Deshaan Plains Concepts & Discussion forum post, so I was waiting for someone to take notice. Thank you for the feedback.

Hi! It’s been quite a while since I said I’d comment on this and I haven’t forgotten, I just had a crazy month. So, let’s go!

Abastross

This reminds me of a Christmas tree. It's definitely spiky enough to be in the plains, but something about it's not clicking with me-- maybe if it was more gnarled and didn't go straight up? I do like the idea of a fruit. It could be an interesting bush if about waist-high, I think. I like all the color schemes though #1 fits the plains best.

 

 

Shogorro

A lot of easy to design plants have the same issue, which is odd radial symmetry. Mostly the only things with radial symmetry are still in the sea. If it wasn't quite so symmetric I would recommend this for one of the Orethan regions. I like the idea of the feet on the plant but would like to, again, see them less symmetric. I like the third color scheme best. Could also work in the velothi mountains as it definitely looks like a plant that grows in marginal environments.

 

Twisting Zeth

I like it, preference to the first or third colors. Again, less symmetry; a spiral but a kinda loopy or lopsided spiral would look more interesting and real. Would work in the velothi mountains if larger or the Deshaan if smaller and rattier (say the height of a person, possibly leaning over). I imagine these growing up against a rock or building and wrapping around it.

 

Dirvyl

I like this, but not for the Deshaan, it looks too normal. If the top of the plant is like a romanesco broccoli that would be great-- and it could grow well in the orethan regions as a medium size tree. I like the second and third color schemes.

 

Thithani

This one looks like it could grow in the deshaan; I imagine the puffy bottom being partially buried by blown salt and the scraggly "branches" blowing gently in the wind. It would make a good medium size plant. Any color scheme is good, if the third is lightened and desaturated.

Saurchon's Eye
I like it! but not for the deshaan. Maybe another region? It might be interesting around Necrom or almalexia. All color schemes good.

Wurt wort
This one needs more detail as it currently reminds me of a cupcake. I like the poison idea.

Spiked Thrush
Definitely like this one! I would love to see it around. The deshaan would work, but also the jungles or orethan, I think, or Velothi mountains. Second and third color schemes are good.

Sludge Claw
I really like this, but it needs a wetter forest environment. The coast or bitter coast regions?

Sleeping Wisp
I've always liked the idea of having little weird lights in the Deshaan at night, as it seems like no one really designs the environments for nightfall. That said its current design is alright. It feels more like an orethan plant to me, though.

Chittle
Fabulous. I love it. I'd love to see different varieties of this in different colors in different ponds. But not in the Deshaan.

Brishk
I imagine this plant growing in a swamp with its hairy bits above the water. It would be a static plant and confuse outsiders. The bitter coast or the jungle would be good. or, the mudflats, where at low tide the low bits would be exposed, but at high tide only the top would show-- or something to that effect.

Luminous Stinggrass
I really like this plant and the paralysis lore tidbit. If we could make an activator for this it would be great. Like, it does 1 pt of health damage and 1 second of paralysis, not much to be really a danger but definitely a pain. I'd love to see this around somewhere not in the deshaan-- maybe on the mudflats?

Dirdle
I like them, but it might work better in a place like the grey meadows.

Shifoon
Definitely like these as a sea plant. Would do well in the salt swamp.

Widler Grass
Is nice, nothing fancy, I like it. It could probably be done with alpha. All colors are good.

Vehk's Yearning
I could see this more easily around Necrom, but the colors seem really... flashy to me. Maybe if the division was more subtle?

Popleni
With the first color scheme I could see this growing in caves in the deshaan, though as usual I like less flashy color designs.

Salt Flames
I like the idea of mushrooms that have salt on them, and would like to see these in caves.

Tiddle Drips
I do like these. I imagine them growing in little piles in and around rocks or small crevices, in corners, etc. I would think they'd come in a few different colors like you have and grow on the surface or in the crevasses.

Miiro
A generally nice looking bush. Again, not really something I'm imagining for the Deshaan, but it could be interesting in the Orethan regions. I like the last color scheme best.

Fufle
This could be nice in the Shipal-Shin region, if the legs were a little less symmetric.

Vult
I can't really see what this without a more detailed drawing.

Chible Bush
This does look interesting, but I'd like to see more drawings of it to get a better idea of its structure.

Springy Silthi
I think this would look great in the almalexia-surrounding regions.

Shridow
Looks fine to me, though it looks more fleshy than I imagine deshaan mushrooms would. Maybe in other caves?

Crumbling Krimle
I'm having trouble picturing this, Maybe more art of it?

Shidra
These look a lot like the trees drawn earlier. I;m not sure what to do with them as a consequence.

Yulvid
Looks great! I would love to see this along the velothi mountains.

Jittering Fox
This would be perfect for the shivering isles, if we were doing them. It's really really weird, so I'm not sure what to make of it.
