Jungle 2D contains over 300 tubes of almost 50 plants and other natural objects. There are varying sizes and shades of many of the plants. There are also tree limbs and trunk images as well as tiling patterns and brush textures. This is a superb collection for creating the outdoor world. The tubes are quickly installed by drag-and-drop!

Description: Jungle 2D is a terrific set of Tubes of tree leaves, nuts, fruits and also plants, rocks and other images from nature. There are also images of tree trunks and branches as well as some texture patterns and images for making custom brushes. The tubes can be installed by drag and drop. Some of the tubes have a hard shadow and some a soft shadow. Which ones you choose will be determined by the effects which you wish to create. They are also sorted by sizes. If you have a tablet, one can use the settings so that the pen pressure changes the opacity. This produces very interesting results. By using layers, one can give a very realistic look to the images.
