To Parsley or To Apple?

July 3rd, 2018 by

I’ve been interested in 3D work lately which is something I’ve done in the past. I am trying to think of a new project idea that is both doable and challenging. So far I have come up with the idea of creating a garden scene featuring Parsley and an apple (in a kitchen scene probably). The apple is winning out so far because the Parsley is actually a lot more complicated. Just to show what I mean, here’s a picture of some Parsley from my Mom’s garden:

As you can see, the Parsley is actually very wavy and curled in such a way that makes the leaves hard to lay flat and scan which is what I would be doing if I was making them as a model. Perhaps I am wrong and I will make Parsley, but modeling the leaves would be quite a challenge (I wonder if it could be made procedurally?). Anyways, I will decide which I do soon and update you on my progress!
