flowers with l-system

Recommended Posts

For my vase WIP I want to put some nice flowers and I find it interesting to do it with l-systems. Actually Im going through the cmiVFX training series on that topic to dive in that material.

Maybe some of you guys have other good resources ?

Thanks

I think you might already know about the algorithmic botany page of Przemyslaw Prusinkiewicz, who worked closely with Aristid Lindenmayer. If not, here is the link to their paper repository: http://algorithmicbotany.org/papers/

Lots of information :-) and a pdf version of "The Algorithmic Beauty of Plants", the definitive book on l-systems.

I'm working with l-systems now to do lightning and would be interested in see how your do flowers.

Are you going to animate the flowers growing or just render a still image? If your going to animate them, then look at how gravity is used by the lsystem and you might want to animate the flowers opening.
