Silver Fir: Part-Doh

As I promised, here is some more final shots of my tree and some process of what I learned at FuturePoly as well.
After gathering and studying reference, I began by modeling the needles and placing them all along a smaller branch.
Then, projection mapping was used to bake out the diffuse and normals to a texture.
The alpha plane was then brought back into max and shaped to create a variety of branches and pieces to place on a trunk and fill out the tree.

These are some shots of the tree after being taken into CryEngine.

Bridge To Whaaat

Very very very early look at something I have been working on in Cryengine. It has test textures and everything.

Silver Fir

A quick viewport render of a tree I have been working on. I was going off of a European Silver fir. I will post more about it once I get the jerk working in Cryengine *fist shake*

The FP

I took a 3D FuturePoly class and I enjoyed it a lot. Learned some really great tips and tricks. Here are some rocks I made in Zbrush. Rocks are pretty fun to make. (maybe not as good as trees though..)
