Now onto the topic...
I am working on a logo, for an upcoming project. I am trying to get a solid idea on how I would model a tumbleweed...
I got some nice stock photos of some and tried to key them out, but they still look pretty bad in terms of artifacting. So my next guess was possibly paint-fx to poly.
I started with the Bramble preset in the Visor of Maya, and from a distance it looks like a tumbleweed...I guess.
But when you get up close it looks more like a bunch of tangled ribbon.
I'm pretty sure there has to be some other awesome ways to make a nice looking Tumbleweed, but I figured I would ask you guys before I drove myself crazy experimenting.
Any advice would be awesome. it does not have to be "photoreal" just look more organic than it is at the moment.
Thanks in advance guys and gals!
