You Are Not Alone
Check out these 3 fantastic renders by artist Nawras Ryhan. The House in Pamplona images, based on architecture by Pereda Pérez Arquitectos, is a personal project Nawras undertook to experiment with exterior rendering. It features heavy use of Forest Pack for scattering trees, grass, leaves bushes etc. and RailClone for the fence and the wooden planks near the entrance.
The second project, based on a photograph seen on Instagram by Erick Ramirez, was an exercise to capture a mood and tell a story. Forest was used extensively for all the greenery.
Many people think of procedural systems as something that will limit the artist, so they prefer the manual method, but with Forest Pack and the ability to dial in any change to your liking easily - even per item - you can have the best of both worlds - speed and the artistic control.
