This remarkable full CG attempt included great looking 3d trees done with Exlevel’s GrowFX plugin for 3ds max. Today, Radek will explain how he went about creating the hero tree in the image above. He will cover the modeling process with GrowFX as well as the scanning of the textures used to get it look photoreal. Enjoy!
