In the spirit of Holiday season, I decided to make a quick tutorial on how to add snow to a spruce tree.
Since this type of model is quite heavy and not really suited to snow plugins or particle simulation, I decided to use ZBrush for this process.
I’ve never seen anyone suggest this idea, so I thought I’d share it!
Once you watch the tutorial, you’ll see how quick and easy it is to create 3D snow and bring it back to 3Ds MAX. This method should work with all sorts of objects and not just trees.
The spruce tree was made by modifying one of the free samples in GrowFX library (Btw you can get GrowFX with 30% discount during their Holiday sale!)
