After seeing all the new modeling features in Maya and never really having spent any time modeling - besides the occasional props for animation - I thought it is time to dive into learning how to build those things I always liked to look at. This little project turned into a very rewarding learning experience with an additional in-depth look at Mayas Paint Effects for creating the grass, trees and bushes.
Software used: Maya, KeyShot, Photoshop
The house pretty much done I started to build a library of trees and bushes. Following that I learned about the joy of using nParticles for the distribution of various grass patches throughout the scene - and that sounds as funny as it really was. Not.
