hi, just thought i'd make a simple scene. when i first saw this site i hoped to make a simple scene but couldn't find one. anyway, this is sort of simple and has a few interesting tricks as i go. i hope to animate this using only paint effects and no keying or eepression. I have to run to uni in a minute but i'll try to put up some now.
first is just a nurbs plane divided 25 by 25 (anybody doesn't understand any of this of course I'm happy to answer as well as accept any help)
and i imported a texture map, i used a picture of some mud and it maps the nurbs plane to this, i didnt use the brush, just imported an image into the scupt tool attributes, the more i push 'import' the greater the effect
i go to the hypershade and make a Lambert and a file node and connect them (colour), i grab the texture from my desk top i made with the paint canvas and drop it into the top of the cliff, the over hand made from the extruding curve and get this
