SSS will take you ages probably, it also depends on which renderer you are using. Also it depends on which approach you would like.. 2d or 3d, just google for Xfrog, Itoosoft, and multiscatter. Best vegetation around...

One thing that sticks out is how red the soil is. Red Soil is iron-rich and difficult to grow anything on.Grass won't grow that thick on red soil, naturally. I'd either add some brown to the texture or space out your grass.

Seeing what I can get out of it by following the KISS principle.



Sometimes I think the mats do more to sell the lighting than the actual lighting. It will definitely need a lot more tweaking.

Obj. Ma.

I feel like these files are a lot more time consuming to open and clean up, has anyone else experienced these issues? I'm trying to seperate the .obj files, but it seems to be taking forever, and i can't save the maya 2011 version, because there are "Hidden" Nodes that cannot be saved....lol Any ideas?

Work in Progress - 01

Hey everyone,
This is my first lighting challenge though I have been watching all the entries since the carnival scene. Awesome model, thanks guys! Here is my first WIP. I'm still working on some textures on the porch of the cabin so you'll notice the door and some other things are still just a mia_material but I will get to them. I would also like to add a dirt path or some wear into the grass, it looks too uniform I think. Also, my sky isn't blended quite properly. But I figured I would see what you guys think. Any suggestions? Any suggestions specifically for grass that won't take an hour to render? Thanks in advance!

Maya 2011 + Mental Ray
