If it is not to close up, a painted vine texture with bump mapping might do the trick. for a closer shot, you could also consider combining/making some paint FX brushes and build your vines that way.
good luck!

Make your architecture live surfaces, draw curves on them, then put a Paint Effects brush to the curves

Remember that you can always edit the Paint Effects after you create them so don't worry if they don't look right at first

I was thinking along the lines of drawking some curves and extruding a tube along it to get a decent wiggly vine shape. Then tweaking to the desired effect.

Witchy - You select the curve, then choose Paint Effects>Curve Utiilities>Attach Brush to Curves. (all under the Rendering menu)

Oh that's helpful thanks! (some great inforamtion you are giving out lately btw, good stuff!). I shall go and try that; want some vines and plants for my cave without adding geometry and the regular paint effect curves don't always seem to end up where I want.
