I’m going to take the leaves used in the alpha map section to demonstrate this technique. In the previous section, we extracted the leaves from the photo that are similar to Fig. 10. 10 60 Vegetation and Alpha Maps The first step is creating a background. Use the color picker to select two different green colors, one for each swatch. Make sure there is enough contrast between the values so we get a good result. Then, create a new layer (Shift + Ctrl + N). We’re going to use the clouds filter to create a random blotchy background.
Select X as the bend axis and set the angle to 90°. The result should match Fig. 12. The frond object can now be used to populate the trunk. 12 42 Adapting a Concept Move the frond object to the top section of the palm trunk. Again, referring to your reference object, duplicate the frond around the circumference of the top of the trunk, varying the scale and rotation to stop the population looking mechanical. When a density similar to the reference is achieved, group the objects and the trunk together.
The starting dimensions should be: radius 75 cm, height 700 cm, and segments 10. The trunk will have varying segment widths, so the radius denotes the absolute maximum. Once this is created, add an Edit Mesh modifier and select the central vertex on the top set of polygons. Pull this up a little to match Fig. 9. 9 40 Adapting a Concept Finally, go into polygon mode (4 on the keyboard), select all of the polygons (CTRL + A) and set the Material ID to 1. The model is now prepared for UV mapping. Add a UVW Map modifier to the stack and select cylindrical as the mapping type.
