I’ve started making mesh trees, as ever in the fearsome Blender. They are pretty tricky to do as you might imagine, at least they are if you want to get them so they are nicely textured, don’t collapse horribly when you zoom out your camera, and also have low LI.
The tree below took me over a week to make. I haven’t finished the textures yet so obviously it’s just the object right now but it has only 2 LI at this size and it doesn’t collapse nastily when viewed from a distance so I’m hopeful it’ll be pretty decent when finished.
Obviously I’ll post more pictures and put it up for sale in due course.
