How did you make the grass with the paint effects tool? I tried also to use it but didn´t mangage to cover the whole part of an area but just isolated blades of grass.

Would be nice if you could tell me, cause I was despairing because of it.

Thanks

Looks pretty cool for 4Hours of work!

I like to have random sessions with Maya! I like to just open it up, with no prior planing, or commitment to a project, and just simply see what i come up with. One time i built 2 Cars

Nice work!

I choose some grass type then
1. Brush Type - Mesh
2. In Brush profile menu - > Brush Width ( I set it about 10-15 try some values )

Thats work for me just fine just draw draw and draw ... but .. im with 1 GB Ram and when i get more drawing work with PaintFX my Maya crush so don't get to laid on painting


P.S I will add some more details this night like chainsaw and what ever came up in my head :attn:

Hehe, looking pretty cool, though it doesn't look like a real chainsaw, but what the hell

Did you manually place all of those chain links around the chain saw mount/thingy?
