Step 4: Lattice modifier

Our strawberry is much too symmetrical, so we'll use a lattice to modify the shape of the mesh. Add a lattice object (Add > Lattice) and scale it around the strawberry. Select the strawberry, jump into the modifiers tab and add a Lattice (select Lattice in the object field of the modifier). Now we're ready to modify our model; select the Lattice object, press TAB (edit mode) and move some vertices.

Step 5: Modeling the leaves

Add a circle (10 vertices) at the top of the strawberry, Extrude and scale the sides to create leaves. Add some loop cuts (Ctrl+R) to make the leaf sharper and use proportional editing to curve each leaf. From the top view, unwrap the model using the Project From View option and export UV layout ? we'll use later to create the leaves material.

Step 6: Materials and texture

Let's start with the strawberry; this material is a mix of a red SSS (subsurface scattering radius 1,13 - 1,20 ? 0,60), a red diffuse shader with white glossy. The material of the seeds is a mix of a yellow diffuse (70%) and a white glossy (30%). For the leaves, open the UV layout with Gimp and copy a leaf texture onto it, using a mix of diffuse and glossy materials. (For a more realistic result look at the ivy generator tutorial here).

If selected faces are reversed when pressing I twice, check Select Outer in the Tool Shelf / Inset Faces
