I’m kinda new here, but not entirely new to blender, been using it on and off for about a year now.
Anyways, my latest project is working on a scene for a custom christmas card, one that I need to make a decent pine tree (christmas tree) for the center of the scene, so it needs to look decent. But instead of going out on the net and finding a pre-modeled one and just using it, I wanted to try and make my own, without having to model every needle of it
I know of the lsystem script that I’ve seen in a few other tree posts on here, but I haven’t been able to get the lsystem to generate a very good looking pine tree. Maybe I haven’t run across the right settings yet, or maybe it’s not entirely possible to do a good pine tree using it, also, there’s no leaf object with it that makes a pine needle instead of a regular leaf.
Anyways, I was wondering if anyone else has modeled pine trees in blender, or found a script or anything that has worked for this, or if I’ll end up just having to either use a stock one from a free 3d model website, or use one of those and modify it a bit to my needs. I’d like to do one myself though if possible (and I can get it done before december hits, so I have time to get my cards out).
Any help would be sincerely appreciated.
