Marius Oberholster Hey! I'm having an incredible learning experience, not only learning how Blender works (yes, still learning), but also about Open-Source and the incredible software available. Stick around!

Ivies now have some leaves

Hey all!

This is what the current preview render looks like:


I adjusted the above a bit, because it's lighting isn't finished yet and so it was a bit on the dark side, environmentally speaking, haha. Anyway, just added some brightness and contrast.

The leaves themselves are the most difficult and personally, I have to admit I couldn't get them as close to the real thing as I had hoped, but, I am very happy with the leaf shape:

I've seen this three-point shape not nearly as often as I would like to, but I have seen it used on sculptures and even photos that have a similar shape (usually a bit rougher than this of course, but such extreme detail is pointless for this project, especially since there is no distort category in Cycles yet). If there were a distort category, I would've added roughness to the leaf's shape.

I am very very happy with the overall look so far and I hope it makes you look forward to giving it a go as much as I have enjoyed seeing today's result. As usual, all procedural textures, including the leaf shape.

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."
