Suggestion: Deadwood photo gallery and video

Dear Mirai team, I would like to suggest a photo gallery dedicated to deadwood specifically with detail shots of the large selection of deadwood in trees (styled or not) in the garden. It would serve as fantastic inspiration for carving. Perhaps also a dedicated feature content video on deadwood with Ryan discussing deadwood in different species. These two things would be a great source of knowledge and inspiration to guide us when carving.

Hey Rafi! Thank you for the suggestion. That’s definitely a large-scale project, but one we hope to undertake in the future! We also plan to do a pillar stream (think Design Fundamentals or Apical Formation) in 2020 focusing on the treatment of deadwood. In the meantime, I’m sure you’ve seen these but here are some resources in the Library:

Also–always feel free to tag me if you want me to see a suggestion faster :slight_smile:
