Strange Trees

Running ahead and going of script really bit me in the butt this time – my first attempt was the small tree with many branches. I actually do know what a mimosa looks like, but sculpting out all the branches was much harder than expected. I suspect a better way to do this would be with an intermediate level – making several large branches with the limbs and then adding those to the trunk (not sure if this is good for poly counts though). I almost gave up here, and needed to break to think about where it went wrong.

Then I just made a fantasy tree with a pine trunk, maple bark, and oversized mimosa leaves.

And then tried putting them in a scene.


Making a tree is hard work.
But there are some addon tools, can create a tree for you!

Also, other techniques are available, so just follow the course.
There is much more to learn.

Fine trees, but Grant’s way in the course is easy and quick, just images, so low poly and it works for distance viewing.

The second tree was made Grant’s way.
