nurbs or poly for plants?
Hi all! I'm new here to the community(although I created this account sometime ago)
I'm currently working on a project where I need to model some plants similar to the one in the link below. But, I've never modeled any kind of foliage before, to me it seems i would just polygon model planes? Or am i wrong and will this be easier using NURBS( I havent used these much) by lofting curves or soemthing similar?
also, it looks like the leaved in the wireframe picture actually have depth, so, i assume i wouldn't just use a single plane depth and would actually model around the whole leaf, using thin side planes?
I hope that make sense. Any help is much appreciated!
Edit: woops, I meant to post this in the general modeling forum. mods please move if possible. Thanks

It depends on what you want to use the plant for.
A movie or something should have a super high poly plant.
If its a side object it could be lower poly.
If its for a game or something, it should have minimum polygons.
What are you making it for?
