    Secret garden - Juergen stein

    Hi everyone,

    my secret garden idea/story/inspiration

    After the nuclear accident in Fukushima, Japan, the Japanese
    Ministry launched the project "Himitsu no niva", aka the secret garden.
    Here contaminated plant species were transplanted for observation and
    research purposes in an underground research facility.

    My main software is Softimage, renderengine is arnold(Sitoa)

    thanks Evermotion for the contest
    ciao j

    scattering

    next step..starting with the vegetation, for scattering the plants I use ICE pointclouds with weightmaps,
    for plants I use xfrog, some speedtrees, for gras IŽll try a mix of strands and some modelled leaves etc.
    in zbrush I try to sculpt some roots and small stuff for the fg

    thats it for today, the plants will keep me busy for some time I think

    first plants

    I spend some time with the first foliage tests, a lot of back and forth
    to keep the rendertime as fast as possible, I scatter the plants in its own scene, with the same cam/lightsettings,
    render it , looks good yes/no, build a model/arnoldstandin and merge everything 2gether in the
    masterscene.
