The 6TH 2014 blog birthday giveaway is here! Laubwerk will give one of you lucky followers the plants kit of choice out of the now 4 available ones. You will also have the chance to win two more plants kits by sending a 3d render you made using one of their freely or commercially available models.
Theres a new kid on the veggie block that you should be aware of. I’ve tested Berlin based Laubwerk’s 3D Plants Kits for a while now, and it is a very interesting solution for populating your scenes with 3d Trees and Plants. A combination of smart content powered by a plugin from within 3ds Max & Cinema4D, supporting V-Ray, Mental Ray, Scanline and Advanced Render.
You can never have enough 3d trees & plants. Keeping your scenes greenies nice and fresh is important, so here’s a little heads up –
April is almost up and you have 1-2 days left due to my previous heads up, demand was such Xfrog granted an extra full month to take advantage of the 50% discount on all Xfrog’s products. XfrogPlants are realistic, highly detailed, fully textured 3D trees, shrubs, and flowers, carefully modeled with the Xfrog procedural software. You have 600 species available in libraries or as individual species… just have your pick.
I stumbled upon these great photos of a garden landscaping project taken by Joao Morgado. The architecture is by Gonçalo Salazar de Sousa and the charming landscaping of the garden is the work of Topiaris, Landscape Architecture. I’d love to live in such a house, and don’t tell me you don’t have a sudden urge to fire up 3dsmax and scatter something. This is a great vegetation reference under the Portuguese sky.
In light of the recent 3d foliage/vegetation plugin updates and new releases (Forest Pack Pro v4, Laubwerk Plant Kit, Carbbon Scatter v2, The Plant Factory, etc.) I went looking for some amazing photo reference… trying to find an itch for you to scratch 😉 ‘The Caterpillar’ House by Feldman Architecture hit that spot and nailed it deep into the ground! Enjoy this great set of photos by Joe Fletcher showcasing the house nestled in the green surroundings of Carmel, California (Location, location… location) with warm wooden interior and a fabulous dusk shot.
