Procedural Lathe flowers 2

Revolution surfaces are used to make procedural petals. The red Bezier cubic spline is the generating r-curve. The blue φ-one determines petal shape. The second (bold curves) basis petal is active for editing.

I think now we have enough different flowers to make complex scenes. I'd like to make more realistic flowers in future but it is not very fast for one "gardener". All flowers are free for any use.

. To avoid visible walls 2 billboard "jungle" layers (and one backside opaque green wall) are used. Only one rendering call for all flowers second for billboards and one more for 15 instanced textured grass layers.

with fixed LOD (check "Lines" to see meshes). 1M vertexes are rendered.

More comments

Unfortunately "3D" gardens are too flat on 2D screen. I'm using WebVR-polyfill and Brandon Jones's samples to make true 3D WebVR Gardens.

To Do

"rose petals vortex" animation
