A friend asked me why there were only like 3 or 4 ways that people did grass.  I said there are probably only so many patterns at small sizes to work with, and after that, they call begin to look similar.  He told me that was bullshit, so I attempted to find a new series of marks.  I would not call it game-ready, but I think I found something nice.  Always good to look at the mundane tasks differently -- that's how we really learn.

edit - some people are thinking there are only 4 tiles that transition perfectly, some other people are thinking there are no transitions at all, so for clarty : the large swatch DOES contain unique, fluid transitions (albiet hastily done) -- only the 4 base tiles are shown above.  They do tile with themselves, but require some help to flow into each other.

pretty reads more like a canopy of trees rather than grass though...

I mean, these  are absolutely fantastic!

Really amazing how you can get this effect with only four tiles.

way sexy grass...

PROZI (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/30/2013 06:07

These are great, can you make them somewhat tileable?

CharlieMcShane (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/28/2013 08:19

The colours on this are gorgeous. Lovely pastle colours!

I would surely love to roll on that grass. The ornamental(ish) style you found is fantastic.

Great job with the seamless transitions, colors and shapes of the grass blades.

Kenichi (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 12/27/2013 17:59

Nice =)

I think that looks like leaves, but it's really incridible *o*

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 12/27/2013 15:05

Gras like that with only 3 colours... nuts.

Terrific piece!

@Stava and @RileyFiery I see exactly where you are coming from ith the plain base color idea, but I think at the same time that since the point of the experiment was to do things differently, then following such a common convention would be counterproductive.  We all know that method works.  Let's try something different!

RileyFiery (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 12/27/2013 04:55

You still have the skills Adarias. This grass is really well made. There's no obvious grid pattern and the variation is nice. I would like to see some spots empty of the leaf patterns.

Stava (Level 8 MS-DOS) @ 12/27/2013 03:28

Haha great work !

I would like to see you remove some of the highlights on some spots leaving only plain base color to give it more variety and break the repeating tiles..
