How to create this leaf with Leaves mesh

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I want to create this leaf (sunflower plant) with geometry and not an opacity map. Is it possible with the leaves mesh or do I have to use instanced geometry? So far I have no luck with the leaves mesh - I can't seem to create that indent you see at the start of the leaf.

 

Thanks,

Terri

Hello Terri,

 

the leaves mesh is actually quite adjustable :

I used the "Width" and the "Angle along" graphs, just play a bit with the points to archieve the desired result.

 

Cheers, Tobi

ahhh thank you Tobi. Honestly I have never really understood what the Angle Along function does, so never knew it was possible to use it to get this result. I thought I definitely was missing something to not be able to create a simple leaf like that!

 

that's great.
