Example text

Create a plane with the following dimensions; 375 cm height, 150 cm width, Length Segments 6 and Width Segments 4. This is the basis for the palm leaf object. Go into Photoshop and create a palm leaf texture from one your reference images (or find some additional images for this). Once you have chosen a key image, create an alpha map and save it. Name the frond texture Palm_Frond and the alpha texture Palm_Frond_Alpha. Put these two textures in the second ID slot of the Multi-Sub Object material.

Now I realize that you probably don’t plan out your work much at this point, but you should definitely get into the habit. The most important reason for this is so that you have a good idea of what you’re getting yourself into. All too often I see artists starting out on a project and running into trouble because they took on too much work, or they didn’t set deadlines to help them focus on specific goals or milestones leading them to completion. Now this doesn’t have to be a mega Hansoft or Microsoft Project Plan, it can be a simple list of tasks with estimates against them in a notepad.

Once you have chosen a key image, create an alpha map and save it. Name the frond texture Palm_Frond and the alpha texture Palm_Frond_Alpha. Put these two textures in the second ID slot of the Multi-Sub Object material. They should occupy the diffuse and opacity slots, respectively. Call the material “Palm” if you haven’t named it already.
