  1. Lighting and textures are great. Im sure this looks awesome for the regular public. I think there could have been more butterflies filling the blank space.

    Things I hate: the front leaves. They are just planes, roughly rotated, but they are in the foreground. Thats a big "No-No" in CG. Their branch is also a silly stick.

    Normally, low poly assets go in the background, and in the foreground you should use very polished assets because they are in the way to your subject.

    About the theme... It is hard to understand the "selfie" part without the description. And I still struggled a bit understanding the description, but maybe Im just dumb. It would have helped to have like a panda-paw signing the tree trunk tho.

    Anyway, if I forget about the foreground leaves, I like a lot seeing this picture.
