Enscape custom assets - how to make leaves
Today's post comes compliments of industry expert Pieter Schiettecatte from A+I in New York City. Click here to see all this posts on this blog, include the very popular recent post: Tutorial: how to create custom Enscape assets.
Many of you have reached out on how to create custom Enscape assets with cutout maps. A typical example of this is vegetation: because the polycount must be kept low, each leaf cannot be modeled in full detail. Instead the shape of the leaf is approximated with just a few polygons and then extra definition is added by using a transparent .png image for the leaf’s color texture.
In this tutorial we will use an ivy plant as an example. You can download the Blender file here.
