Environment Design: The Forest of Two Daughters

When the Mushroom and Plant Twins appear, the forest changes into more pleasant and welcoming set. PG is in charge of designing the 'scary forest' which is the main environment, and I am in charge of the 'happy forest'.

The idea is to have a central circle, kind of like a small meadow, on which the Twins will dance around the Son. Below are few initial thumbnails. Nothing specific yet.
