From the land that brought you IKEA. The second part of the D.I.Y series. D.I.Y. Vines. Now you can easily create different vines in any form with this set of leaves and the excellent Skatter plugin.

Materials are set up for Thea render but textures are included for other render engines.

In each skp file there are example Skattered vines where you can look at settings and learn from. Open the skp file and start Skatter. Under Renderlist click on edit to load the examples.
Draw a wiggle line with the freehand tool and use follow me with a circle to create a simple vine. You can also use the free Ivy plugin to create a stem to be used as Host in Skatter. Then use the different leaves to create your vines.
