Graphic help request
« on: February 08, 2009, 03:54:55 PM »
In the topic High buildings of pak128 addons, I asked for someone to draw me something that I can't draw :D

Could someone draw me a sequoia ? (you know these giant trees ...).

I need a sequoia :
_ about 250 pixels high
_ about 56 pixels large for leafs
_ about 12 pixels large for trunk
_ if possible with appearant roots

If you can, it would be wonderful to have two or three different sequoias ;)

Perhaps, you may be interested in ngplant, a software for creating beautiful plant models and images.

Ah! Ok, it's true. The program seems a little bit unfriendly. Anyway, it's not my website neither my program.. :)... Instead of that, you can also try gen3 blender's plugin.

I do trees using gen3 as well.  But I'm not very good yet and not used to what all the settings do, so it would be just as quick for you to learn!

Completly agree with you.  Gen3 interface is not very intuitive, a bit overwhelming at the begining. It has a lot of options but when you dedicate some time to learn how it works, the results are really good.

I just need a tree, I don't want to learn just for a tree ... I'm rather a pixel-art drawer.

But those skills may be usefull for you in a near future... ;)

Anyway I'll try to make something this weekend, but I don't promise anything. Btw, I've also found this software called arbaro, very similar to ngplant but perhaps with a much friendly interface. It allows you to create the tree model and then export it to render the scene with Blender, Povray, etc...

Currently I haven't the time and the envy to learn that ...

Waiting for your try ;)
