The Year 10 students were away on camp, so with a smaller group we had a relaxing day, with each student working on their own textures for the build. Noah, who missed the Photoshop session, was able to catch up. The images below show how Noah built up textures from images of small sections of real plants.
To the left is Noah's original image from the camera.
Below are the textures he made as PNG files on transparent background in Photoshop.
The images below show Noah's textures used to make plants in the Imagination sim Inworldz.
The Stained Glass texture didn't work quite as well as it might. I will play around with some different plant shapes to see it it works better in a different format.
The others are textures created from that image in Photoshop.
In our Imagination fantasy garden the real life colours look a little out of place, but it does make a nice grove of trees.
It fits into the build better coloured yellow (left), but also looks great in blue (below).
