Description:

This is a set of cattails with leaves and spikes.

Leaves, cattail, and spikes are seperate objects so you can adjust the size and color to fit the time of year (cattails change colors over the season).

Cattails also vary in shape. I chose an average, but they also grow shorter and longer and thinner. Review some reference pictures and adjust to suit your picture.

To use with the particle system to populate a lake, pond, creek, etc. you can group these objects or make several different groups of varying sizes and lenghts.

Cattails tend to grow in very thick groups near shore.

The textures are all procedurals and easy to change.

    I like it, and will have to take a closer look at how you created those great materials.

    As a suggestion, you can add Empties and use them to organize your objects.

    I created the 'Cattail' objects, and then added them to a 'Cattail Plant' object.

    Anyhow, nicely done, and I will take a closer look at your other Blends.
