Very nicely done, Dave — this is gorgeous!
Thank you Jane. Created in Blender 3D using particle systems for the grass and trees and a volume shader to create the clouds. Textures applied via Substance painter and the golf bag is from Adobe 3D assets 🙂
I just checked and realised I have spread 15.5 million grass plants, along with 224 XFrog trees and shrubs across the scene. The distant grass is texture, rather than individual plants though. It gave the PC something to do.
Great work wth the image.
I was wondering how the person mowing the grass managed those chamge in pattern 🙂
Dave I really thought that was a real photograph.
Another masterpiece you created.
Alligators are no joking matter here in Florida.😬
Thanks K - I think I'll let that one play through ! You've done a nice job matching the lighting.
Dave, I agree with K that it looks like a real photo, and I've just uncovered an earlier take from your photo shoot that you thought you discarded. 😊
Haha - now it looks like a photo Jane ! I knew something was missing 🙂
Another great render, Dave!
I modified the course to better match my abilities and avoid stress...
Stress free golf - I like it 🙂
Rafael, That’s hilarious!
Heck, I would take out my gardening shovel and dig a much LARGER hole.
My interest in the sport of golfing doesn’t extend much beyond putt putt. 😂
Welcome to SFTW JJ. Tiger appears to have grown a little! Either that or you have proved that the golf course is indeed a model 🙂
I recognise that from Jane's challenge a few weeks ago. You will need Rafael's hole to sink it though.
😳let's leave my hole out of this, please! 😜
Indeed, Dave, the very same. The shadow of the flag already fell on it back then.
And right you are about the unspeakable. Besides, a new term would be needed for a perfect drive: flag in one.
Very good Dave, but we noticed you missed a spot!
Perfect - keep the greens nice and clean 🙂
Is there a prize for the longest drive
Nice one Ged. No giraffes this week though ?

Guess that dates some of us. 😁
