Creating A Flower In 10 - seconds Or Less
In this tutorial I'll teach you how to create a generic flower bud from a sphere.
Step one - Create a sphere (create>polygonal primitives>sphere).
Step two - Delete history by going to edit>delete all by type>history.
Step three - Select all the vertexes on the top of the sphere.
Now this is the reason why the sphere will turn into a flower instantly.
Step one - Go to edit>transform components. Click the square beside the text to open up the tools options.
Step two - Set the randomness to 6. You may need more.
Step three - Click transform vertex.
Step four - In the Maya scene, select and move the blue move handle of
the universal manipulator. The more you drag it out, the better the
flower will look.
Now just add a stem and some leaves and your done. This technique is
handy for adding flowers to background objects like bushes and trees.
