Looking to recreate the style of grass from Pixar's Monsters University (I know it's weird and grass seems boring but it's a good exercise in scene optimization, shading, and lighting ). The problem I'm running into is building an interesting composition. Right now it's just kind of "Oh look, it's some grass on a plane."
Some Early Test Renders:
Higher Resolution Version:
I thought it would be enough to add the sidewalk, a tree, and the fence for a basic composition but I'm curious as to what you think! Another Idea I tossed around was recreating the porch in the top middle reference image, but that becomes "Look at this porch" and not "Isn't this some cool grass?"
All rambling aside, all feedback/ideas are welcome! Thanks!
