starting the modeling

I started working on some of the objects that will be in the garden. Here is the bench, the one in the back is the first one I started with (its just one piece of geometry), the second on is several pieces of geometry but its much easier to manipulate

As for the ground I started with the black and gray image trying to play with a displacement map, but since geometry renders faster than displacement maps, I started to look into just modeling everything out. So I'm currently working on that in mudbox. I'm still learning how to sculpt the rocks.

Yes, agreed, the second bench is much more successful because of the subtle variety in the planks. Make sure to bevel the edges (or increase the bevel). Mudbox looks much better than the displacement... keep working with Mudbox.
