View Full Version : Sand covering a statue. How?

Does anyone have suggestions on how to get the effect of drifting sand covering the foot of a statue or other large monument?

Merely making a surface for the sand and having it overlap part of a statue model creates too clean of a break at the line of intersection. What are ways to "dirty up" that transition?

Or would modeling the sand surface as a contiguous part of the statue be the better path?

I would try a mixture of modeling the bulk of the sand with a nice texture on it and the use of a projection to get the sort of gradient transition from the sand pile onto the statue.
