It's time again to start thinking about articles, tutorials and images for Issue # 32 of Blenderart Magazine.

The theme for this issue is “Spring is Sprung”

This issue we are going to explore how Blender can be used to create a variety of plants, flowers, trees and landscapes to hold it all.
Here are just some of the possible topics:

  • Modeling and texturing of plants, flowers, trees;
  • can be realistic, toony, exotic, alien or even steampunk
  • Ant Landscape Add-On
  • Ivy Generator or similar scripts
  • Use of arrays, curves and other modifiers to create vegetation

Also wanted, great shaders, materials and node setups for great looking materials and effects.

  1. @Sandra, I wish you could be here in South Africa: we are having sunny skies and "braaivleis" (that's Afrikaans for "barbecue" :-) ). I heard Europe is a bit "snowed under", but I mowed the lawn today and had to jump in the pool afterwards from the heat - and I picked up quite a tan in the process. We "braai'ed" the meat till around 21:00, which was when we started eating, all outside.

    So, maybe we South Africans should walk the extra mile to show you what real green (not white) vegetation is! :-)

  2. Sigh, I obviously need to move. Idaho goes through all 4 seasons. Winter is too cold, summer is too hot. I love Spring and Fall but they actually have lots of rain. And I don't enjoy being wet. >:(

  3. Just a very quick shot to show some of the plants and trees in and around our house in South Africa, December 2010. This was done with a small digital camera (low-quality) - used in video mode (not a video camera):

    Don't worry: I won't submit it for the Blender Mag :-)

    One gets snow over here in Winter, but only in certain isolated areas. It's usually a big thing for people to drive there to actually see and expereince the snow. But you have to be quick, as it usually melts within 2-3 days.
