I really like it. Hard to tell if it's just grass texture or something as complex as fiberFX. Looks nice.

I would say HD Instance grass (some are poking through the leaves) and image-mapped simple 3D poly flowers and insects, all looking very nice :thumbsup:

Criticism?

Clover tends to grow in clumps and you've been careless when carrying your strawberries :)

Great work! Please give us some insight on how it was done! :)

Thanks for feedback! I'm glad you like it!
All grass, flowers, insects are objects, no image mapped stuff in post. First I placed the grass and flowers with DPInstance, but I found too difficult to place the strawberries on the grass (blades going trough strawberries), so I did it brute force copy-paste. As you can see fiberfx was only used for bee's fur. Imho, the only way to make decent grass is to use instances. If there wouldn't be strowberries sitting in the grass, I would've used dpinstance for sure! (I must say this is not the "original" scene. Originally strawberries were placed to form a name, so they had to be placed exactly and with dpinstance I couldn't do it fast).
PS: better drop strawberries rather than money... :D

Forgot: wings are animated with a morph, so bees are really flying (photoreal MB 1 pass).

Very nice work, and technically quite impressive. I really have to give instancing a try! :)

Submit to the gallery?! :eek: You must be joking... I don't think it could fit there, I'm not at that level...
Thanks to all!!! :thumbsup:

Here's another view, actually just a preview during the tweaking process, but's a nice image.

Nice update... that grass is nuts, looks really good.

Really impressive! It's almost a shame you can see the segmentation and too shark edges of the flowers, as otherwise this looks almost photoreal! Beautiful work!

Ya totally photoreal except for the segments on the flowers. Absolutely amazing looking.

Generally agree with everyone except that the cut open strawberries don't look up to the standard of everything else, they need to glisten or something, I'd either fix em or replace them with uncut ones.
