The methode is not exactly original and many artists will have used it for other types of materials but it can be applied to many different scenarios. Indeed, if there is interest, I was planning to write a follow-up tutorial some time soon on how to use the same workflow to create rain drops on glass. Before we jump in, here is a taste of what the final result looks like on low-poly geometry. I will be using 3ds Max and Vray here, but the basic philosophy can be applied to all 3D apps and renderers. The first step is to create the base geometry that will be used to generate the displacement map. When subdivided (here two levels of Turbosmooth), the plate looks nicely distorted. Now render and save the ZDepth and the Alpha passes. That’s it.

SketchUp 3D Rendering Tutorials by SketchUpArtists. PHOTOSHOP GRASS TUTORIAL - PHOTOSHOP LANDSCAPE TUTORIAL. The illustration in this tutorial was used for a competition that another student, Jeff Kruth, and I worked on a few years ago in grad School.


The video explains the work flow used to add tall grass to an otherwise dull Kerkythea rendering. Some important things to pull from this video are how default Photoshop brushes can be used to get rid of the clean edge lines left over from the rendered image. In this case, a default grass brush in Photoshop was used to soften the edges of the landscape. The burn and dodge tools were used to add shadows and highlights to the vegetation. In order to cut down the length, I didn’t really take my time with the clipping and making selections.

In case you aren't sure how to set it up, here are the settings: For all our day shots we used standard Vray Sun + Sky system. The global illumination was standard Light Cache and Irradiance Map mode. We also exported several different render elements to have freedom in post-production, though the results were such that didn't require anything else than some basic color correction, a bit of sharpness and some chromatic aberration. Also we didn't use Vray built-in depth of field, but applied it in post-production by using Photoshop Lens blur and the zdepth render element.
