I ran across this flower female image on CG Society. The author used Houdini. I am wondering about the technique, is it just a surface scatter? There is some nice collision with the ground plane, however?

Looks like scatter and instance to me... The bottom part, possibly is a cloth sim, with flowers instanced to the cloth, aligned to the surface normals. Or, they just modified the base posed geometry in zbrush or something to sculpt the feeling of draping cloth. Maybe a few dozen flowers dropped along the base, as well, with simple bullet solver to get good collisions.

you could create a feather system, maybe a packing algorithm would help too, simulate them, and after that you could create the stalk for each flower and put it on the axis and manipulate them prodecurally 

 

but i guess adams suggestion is the way to go  :D

Houdini could be declared a "national treasure"  :lol:

 

 

Congressman wants to declare magic a “national treasure”

 

Rep. Pete Sessions, (R-Tex.), wants Congress to adopt a resolution recognizing magic "as a rare and valuable art form and national treasure."

 

The conservative's proposal drops names like Harry Houdini, David Copperfield, futurist Arthur C. Clarke, and even artist Leonardo da Vinci.

Getting Congress to agree on anything usually takes a little magic (maybe a magic bag of cash?). So why should lawmakers approve this non-binding resolution known as H.RES.642.? The resolution's text says it all:
