A 3D Model of a Tree

We was tasked with creating a basic tree model in 3DS Max using what we assumed a tree would look like and here is the final results.

How it was done

It was done in 3ds max. The bark of the tree was created using a sphere that has been altered by moving and changing the shape of there edges, they were also cut and then copied and pasted two multiple parts of the tree. The leafs were done using a plane that has been textured using a opacity and a diffuse map. then it was copied and pasted around the tree to give it some foliage.


This task was easy and my only problem was how many polygons, I had used at the end of the creation being a rather large amount. i am happy how it looked at the end and i can used what i learned here, for the tree based on a real life.
