Sketched 3D tree


Ralph Ammer is an incredible writer, artist and more. Looking through his site recently I found this picture in his naturals series.

Ralphs amazing sketched tree

I loved the style and thought it might suit an experiemnt in learning more about shaders.

What I've learned in this sketch is the following:

  • It's much easier to work with Three.js by using Parcel ( hat tip to Yuri Artyukh for his incredible weekly live coding sessions for teaching me this ).
  • Dust3D is easier for me than Blender. I'm still terrible at it, but I feel like I can get somewhere with it, whereas I dont have the time or interest in learning Blender fully. I'm only really every looking for low poly stuff.
