I've been designing and re-designing my new "Another Code" wallie throughout the night and I still can't get the grass right! T_T I'm beginning to feel like I suck at making realistic wallpapers! Do you have any useful tutorials on how I can fix the grass on my wallpaper, because I am now officially stumped! >.<

ROFL - Star, why didn't cha mention this in the shoutbox during the first place? Just kidding.

Oh - very nice indeed. Wow O_o - How did I overlook this one. The girl is so pretty... *_*

**Chomps on an apple while daydreaming again**

Oh shoot! **Snaps out of it** Where was I? Oh yes.

If you are having problem what the grass looks like, go around the website and check what real grass / artificial grass looks like - that might visually help you there.

As to the grass, they look all prickly and purky no doubt - um... not in that sort of way, you sicko - LMAO O_o

But seriously, that grass would look much nicer if it was more random-looking and beaten to the side - like the wind that has partially effected it, making it look more natural, and for some areas the colors of the grass tips fade as they spring out. And the grass looks a little lopsided in some areas more than others. The dark green patches killed it pretty much. Hope that helps - lolis

mmm... all I can say is practise a lot ..
use stock photos from magazines and such for your reference image.... and try to learn the perspective, details and color variations and tones....
grass colors can be different at night as well as in daylights,.... and atmospheric factors like clouds, fog, and lighting also affects the appearance....
I do not mean to disencourage you, but no matter how many tutorials you're eating... still, the realism of the grass you created depends on how well you got the stock image portrayed in your mind...
I found Nat's tutorial to be the best available on the net, besides Xythis's (which is a bit more advanced method - without using brush),... all that left is just some practise...
and after that, you might want to create your own brush, according to your liking....
take it slow, I felt the same way when my first time designing sceneric walls with grass.... ;)

lol wait hold on a second - it would be best to keep a tab and record of advice on a thread so you won't forget, plus it won't be temporarily like that in the shoutbox - and besides you asked for help that all members can give you advice upon - I don't think you should close this thread yet, give these people time to let in part of their advice, ne? lolis - I'll see what I can do for you too.

Good luck on your work. You have the willingness to keep trying, and that's all that matters.
You can do it!
Keep practising and I think you'll be great! Wo0t!

Oh okay, Celessa! :) I don't want this thread closed now! But still, this wallie is so hard to make, I almost gave up on it entirely! Hope Korgie's new advice gives me a pick-me-up! I really need it today! :sweat:

oh, i forgot to mention something......
use the single-blade grass brush more oftenly than the three-blades,.... because too much of the three-blades would make the grassfield look unnatural.....
like, all the grass blades need to sway in the same direction, although some are indeed sway in the opposite direction, but they are -much- fewer....
I hope I was being clear enough >.<

I either use the grass brush + muliple layers/colors/sizes/inversions (Whew!) OR
Clone stamp some real grass, maybe filter it a bit so it doesn't look TOO real ^_-
