For this project, I decided to depict a very industrial looking container home in a very natural scene. I tried a number of new tools to create the environment. The first were the 3D scanned rocks by Adrian Kubasa, which will be available here: https://www.eisklotz.com/products/models/nature-scans-for-blender/
The second was the Scatter addon by BD3D.
The scanned rocks are very high-quality, with good UVs, and even their own asset manager to easily add them into your scenes. I’ll definitely be using them on all future nature scenes.
The Scatter addon was ideal for well, scattering. I used it for all the ground plants as well as the rocks. So far, it’s the closest equivalent to Forest Pack I’ve seen for Blender. It makes setting up scenes like this much easier.
For textures, I used Poliigon for the majority. The containers were textured using Substance Painter.
