Creating a Bonsai Tree
Added on: Tue Apr 09 2002
Page: 1 3 4 

When you have extruded the faces you want to create the shape of your main branches, add a meshsmooth to see what your final tree will look like.


As you can see the bottom of the trunk looks kind of silly. Lets work on the roots a bit. First I select the bottom face of my tree and extrude down twice to create this look. That will stop the bottom from being rounded out like it was before.



Now I take the side faces of our original box and extrude those out to make the roots. its always good to have your landscape turned on so you can see how the roots will look resting on the surface. In this case im just using a box to be my landscape.


Just do some extrutions on each side and your roots are finished.
