In the spirit of Independence Day I made a simple US Flag. I’m still getting the hang of Blender so I thought this project would be easy enough.
I used a basic plane, put a cloth modifier on it, and set up some wind tunnels for the flowing flag effect. I used a worn American Flag photo as the diffuse texture of the flag and used some tightly woven fabric for the normal, occlusion, and specularity textures. To top it off I utilized volumetric lighting for the light rays falling onto the flag.
I hope you like it, any critiques/advice would be greatly appreciated.
Happy Independence Day, God bless
