More Crocus Flower Textures
Continuing with the 3D botanics I am learning when it comes to flowers the Gradient tool is your best friend.
My first attempts of these flowers resulted in a more solid almost artificial look because the colour was not graduated like a real flower would be.
The colour should gradually fade into hues of greens the further down the stem ideally. So with some editing of the map in Photoshop I had another play and created these.
I think they are much more realistic plus the petals at the back are ever so slightly transparent too again, as a real flower petals would be.
They can be found in TRU Textures within Second Life for L$350 for 13 textures on transparent backgrounds. Sized 1024 x 1024 pixels.
They will also be available from the SL Marketplace, TRU Textures website, contentparadise.com and isourcetextures.com in due course.
