Do you usually make and paint your own leaf sculpts for your foliage, or do you take photos from either your neighborhood or the internet?I like the idea of making all my leaves since I have complete control over how it looks and everything, though its obviously not the most practical or efficient thing to do when you have to populate an entire environment. Photography i think will always look best if you want to go photorealistic.
I hand-paint 100% of my textures but obviously that depends on how much time you have and what style you're going for.In my case its usually helpful to hand-paint foliage because I can exaggerate detail in a way you don't get in a photorealistic style that reads better as leaves.
i don't think making your own leaf is possible. its just one of those things
>>567413what do you mean? i've seen handpainted leaves and they look quite good in games
