grass roots

in this scene i’ve got grass springing from the bottem, only the root looks like crap, like it’s pasted in. does anyone have a solution to make ik look better?

also improvements to the overall image are welcome. (i know this isn’t the forum for that, but if you’re looking anyway…)

Try some ambient occlusion.

I don’t mind the look of the roots.

or you can add a vertical blend texture that fades to black at the bottom which will simulate ambient occlusion without having to calculate it.

good luck :slight_smile:

Or you could make the grass cast shadows so it’ll look more like the grass is attached to the ground instead of hovering above it. :slight_smile:

thats a good idea, going to try that today :slight_smile:
