Starting Scenery: Realistic Roads
Realistic roads are such an important part of all of our scenery; they tie buildings, towns and cities together and give us more little vignettes to model. There are so many ways to model them and I have already covered many options in videos. Because I’ve already covered so many topics, I went with one of my favourite techniques this time, muddy roads and dirt tracks.
Below is a playlist of all my roads videos on YouTube.
