Plants and Light

Trying Luxrender.

Very nice! I love nature renders. Looking forward to seeing it progress (and maybe seeing your shading network when you get a little further on)

Good start, looking forward to textures & materials.
One tip, as I’ve done a lot of leave materials for one of my scenes recently: enable the “two sided” option if you use glossy translucent for the leaves, otherwise you get weird white surfaces sometimes.
