    Default How to make Coniferious Trees?

    Hello,
    I've been a fan of this site for sometime now but only recently decided to join and participate.
    I'm hoping someone might be willing to help me with how to create some Coniferious Trees with a Top Down view?
    Also need a Shadow that is at 135 degree.
    I use PhotoShop CS.

    Thanks.

    The search box seems to be broken with the upgrade that's going on, but if you look in the mapping elements section you will see some trees that I made using Bryce 5's tree lab. Bryce 5 (I think now Bryce 6) is a free download. In short:

    Make your tree
    Use a top down view for the render
    Render an alpha mask

    By adjusting the light direction you can get the shadow to fall where you want.

    Bring both into ps and make a transparent .png.
