a technique I use to make some nice looking grass for ground cover.
You could apply this technique to other applications as well.
We’ll start by making a simple 12×12 grid for our patch of grass. Start with the 3D cursor at 0,0,0. If it’s not there already, you can press CTRL-C to move it to the center. Pressing ‘C’ will center your view on the cursor. Switch to an over head view (7 on the numb pad should give you an over head view).
