How to grow a flower like this?

And which plants do you want to model? The video loooks more like fantasy.

Well I usually try to get botanical correct plants so my first step is allways collecting information and reference picture of the plant in books, walks in the nature and the internet.

I highly recommend the site http://www.baumkunde.de/(it's german but you can search for the botanical name) and you mostly get very good pictures and what is really good for our purpose: You get picture of the front AND backside of the leaves. After saving the pictures I go in photoshop and prepare the leaves by cutting them out and getting the Alpha-mask... Before I explain every step, are you completley new to growfx or is the general workflow clear?
