Default Random - Grass

Hey people!

Did this today in an hour or so just really to learn how to make grass and play with it a little. Dont ask me what the big things are as i have no idea but they may start cropping up as a little signature as i think they are kool! lol



Let me know what you think. Like i said it was mostly as a bit of practice. I used the grass in the fur tool.

Very interesting, I am liking the weird alien vibe. Those big things can be the legs of an alien creature sticking out from the grass, maybe buried there. That's what I think

For a minute, I thought the three big things were three blades of grass! :-) You had me fooled! I do really like your grass. I've played around with the fur tool, but only for mustaches, gnarly hair, and eyebrows. I don't think I've even noticed the grass feature!

I'm glad I found this thread! I've been trying to figure out grass forever (I've used digital photos of grass, Photoshopped green noise with bump maps, &c &c usually with mediocre to lame results).

NICE JOB! :-)
