Horizon Hiding Green Wall of Underwood/Understory Vegetation

Postby ttype » Tue Dec 06, 2016 12:52 pm

I don't know whether there is a name for that in ArchViz/Architecture, and perhaps it is a very lame question, but what is like a good approach when I just want to have something like a "Hiding the horizon green wall of vegetation"?

I mean you have your model, surfaces with grass and ways, a sky and then I simply want decent looking vegetation that hides the horizon. Just using Skatter's trees this doesn't work, but I don't know, well, what's the best way to do it (render-friendly) and which models to buy/get to make this look good.

I'm more or less talking about such a situation. On almost every image Villa Savoye looks like there was some kind of forest, forest was taken away, villa built and now the trees in the background look like random nature that has never seen a landscape gardener.

Can someone perhaps be so kindly to tell me what is like the best way to get such a covert/understory 'background'?

I may be wrong with the terms, but I think they are referred to as "billboards" generally but also sometimes as "tree lines".

You can find some here in the sketchUcation shop:

Those images are nice, but I want to render real models. Now when I e.g. use all birches Thea comes with and all bushes that come with Skatter, I get something like this. But what what do I need to change here to get a proper tree line??

I would say you need to add depth to the treeline, variation in heights and sizes of trees and bushes, play with some density there. Remember it must facilitate the function you want and does not necessarily need to be "real world" as you need it to form a backdrop and obscure horizon line and sight through.

Okay, I am just so lame when it comes to Mother Nature. Thank you...
