This is my recreation of Nanette from Gnomeo and Juliet. It took me somewhere around 40 hrs to

make this shot. She really isn't a complex model but posing her was a challenge since she was not rigged.

I had to position each and every rose petal by hand because none of the other methods (that I know of) gave me a good randomization. It was exhausting.

Textures were made in GIMP after the base was laid out by Blender's own texture paint mode. Lighting was the other challenge but a few replies on my WIP thread on BlenderArtists got me through it. In the end I had to use two Render layers one of which acts as a shadow pass in the final composite.

Rendered in Blender Internal - 35 mins.

    Brilliant. Wish Blendswap would allow higher resolution previews.

    Very, very nice! Have you tried particles or soft body simulation for petals?

    Yes, I tried particles but they kept intersecting. I didn't try soft body simulations though.

    This is realy nice work here. Though you mention it not being rigged, is there model might be able get from you where its in a rigging friendly pose? T-pose ect.

    @Furlow, yep. I modeled her in T-pose then I posed her manually for the shot. If you give me your e-mail I can send her over. ;-)
