C'est un mushroom!

Hey all!

Just practicing my French a bit, lol. Here is a mushroom a friend challenged to me to make! It was such a difficult thing to do and I smugly thought: "this will be easy", lol. Famous last words I guess, lol. The Word also says that pride comes before a fall, so this one put me back in my proper place really quick. Thank YOU JESUS!

Here is the reference image I used.

Anywho, here is the final:

What made this image very difficult came down to a few things:
 - Little bits on the top
 - Coloration
 - Leaves
 - Very random grass
 - Composition can be destroyed by excess objects or elements

The greatest thing that came from this was a fresh dose of humility, but also that you can use strands with mesh objects particle systems and them working together well. It's what I used here. I modeled two or three grass blades for all of it.

Another thing, which is last on the list, is that you can have too much in your background. Like in this image, I added clouds, but removed them as soon as they were done, because they just overtook the focus of the image completely. Thankfully, I was open to reason when I was lead to remove them, lol.

Hope you enjoy it and go try it out for yourself!!

Have a great one!

Thank YOU!!!!!

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."
Revelation 22:18-21
