Love this miniature! How did you make this tree?

I took a fake flower stem. I used the end, it's thicker, as the core, and wraped the branches around the core leaving extra lenght for roots and branches. Some wires were twisted together before adding to the core. I then tapped the whole thing with florist tape. It's green, narrow and very sticky. I saw videos where they used duct tape but i did not find it convincing. Florist tape is very ribbed and adds more texture for bark.

 

Primed and painted it.

 

For the leaves i made a block out of packing styrofoam, used wood glue to stick moss flocking and stuck it on the tree while making sure i inserted the branches in the block. That's the small detail a lot of people forget to do to make the tree believable. Looks more natural with a few branches going in below the leaf block.

love the tree and the basing! 

The owl bear has a great face, but you might want to try adding deeper shadows, using thinned black/brown mix.

or a gray shade on the underside of the claws.   

The figure is also very shiny, do you nave a mat sealer to go over the gloss?

I did not put gloss on this mini. But a matte sealer is a good idea.
