My plant collection 2018

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

this year I started modeling plants. Some of them could by better. Only few of them was created according to a real template. For the rest I used mostly google pictures or youtube videos. Every plant took me approximately 4 hours to complete. Most time I spent studying how the plant looks :wacko:

Hold my fingers, I still need to create a few plants :D

Amazing works! this is the reason why i bought growFX.... thanks for sharing.... any tutorials you will recommend? 

 

Thanks ;)

I am using only few modifiers: almost every branch is using random/vector/noise direction modifiers, sometimes radial direction for leaf stem and when it is necessary object reaction modifier.
Often for leaves and twigs and small branches it is essential use vector orientation, but this modifier is better test on extra small example, because it is sometimes hard to tell on bigger plant if you set the parameters X/Y orientation correct or not :)) .
I was learning only from tutorials from exlevel page. After 2 or 3 plants it was quite easy to create any plant. 50% of success is to have good reference, photos, measurements, or real plant. Rest is about setting parameters and do some work in photoshop (extracting leaves from photos, make color wariations, normalmaps, make bark texture non repeating, ...).
For bigger project I reworked my plants to use with forest pack plugin, because some conifers had 6M polys, and that was not good for RAM even as proxy object. So for example I grouped few needles to single mesh and dristributed that mesh using forest pack. Or convert growFX flower paths as single mesh and and distribute with FP. Then RAM consumption is quite low.

And here is the rest of my collection :) :
