Software used:
3ds Max, Photoshop

My modeling principle might seem difficult at first glance, but it's actually quite simple. I broke each herb into subjects and then constructed the basic elements before merging them back into one object. Therefore each type of grass I used was made from four or five different pieces:

• Corn (Fig.12)
• Yarrow (Fig.13 - 14).
• Wormwood tarragon (Fig.15 - 16).
• Wormwood (Fig.17 - 18).
• Sow-thistle field (Fig.19 - 20)
• Burdock (Fig.21 - 22).

Fig.12 - Corn

Fig.13 - 14: Yarrow

Fig.15 - 16: Wormwood tarragon

Fig.17 - 18: Wormwood

Fig.19 - 20: Sow-thistle field

Fig.21 - 22: Burdock

When you make separate elements of plants it is good to use UVW Unwarp as it will make texturing easier later. You will also need to use the noise modifier (Fig.23).

You would be great Farming-Simulator mods creator. And this tractor is awesome! Maybe you can sell tractors model? I think it would be the best soviet union times mod. :)
