giveaway grass essentials

Winner picked, giveaway closed – thanks everybody! Click here to seeΒ the results.

Hey artists and Blenderheads, I’m freaking excited to announce a new giveaway. Leave a comment below this post to win The Grass Essentials pack (worth $85). And thank you everybody for being awesome!

Our thanks also goes to Andrew Price for kindly offering a free copy of his recent (and trending!) product.

What Is The Grass Essentials Pack?

Come on, I bet you’ve heard about it. The Grass Essentials pack is a complete solution for creating insanely detailed grass in Blender. Basically, it helps you to create a lawn (forest floor/meadow) in seconds.

There are 15 Species of Grass, with up to 49 model variations for each.

Plus 15 species of weeds and some dead leaves.


It comes with a set of easy to use controls for changing grass distribution pattern, age and color of the grass. So if you want to create a dry grass field, it’s a matter of tweaking a slider.

And if you are serious about nature simulations, you will appreciate the quality of the content. Believe me.

Having a Nature Render in Your Portfolio is Always Beneficial

Here at CreativeShrimp I posted a bunch of tutorials about creating nature. Because the interest for nature renders is always huge. And also because having a nature render in your portfolio is a nice way to showcase:

1. Lighting skills

2. Particle systems

3. Your ability to create insanely complex stuff


Watch How to Create Nature Render for Your Portfolio in Blender, in 10 Steps.

    Started Blender around 14, 16 now. Grass essentials pack would be a great addition to my Nature studies at the moment. (Personal project of mines)

  17. Max

    Hi, first off i really enjoy your tutorials (very informative and easy), great job! ;DΒ 
    I’m using blender since a few years now and it’s just awesome how it keeps getting better and better!
    I’m currently working on a trailer for a science fiction/love/philosophical movie with focus on photorealism and the grass essentials would be really helpful in a bunch of scenes.

    (Sorry for my bad English I’m from Germany)

    • Would love to watch the trailer for your film when it’s ready.

  26. Domenico D'Alisa

    Hi Gleb i’m working on this noisy render using some techniques in your tutorials (btw i’m still a Blender newbie, maybe sharing my image can help to improve myself)
    Great to see 2 of my favorite Blender artist collaborate together, the grass essential is amazing!

    • Domenico, thanks for sharing your work! Try adding even more light (either in the scene, or in post-processing by overlaying some warm bright color on top of your frame). And the second thing – tilt camera a bit, it will be more dynamic πŸ™‚

      • Domenico D'Alisa

        Thanks for the tips, it’s really much more suggestive now!

    Hi Gleb! big fan here..

    thanks to you I learned how to make Gaming texture scene, take a look

    And since the country where I come from doesn’t have Paypal, winning a contest would be my only chance to get the grass essentials.

    That’s why I’m also participating on Andrews Competition: “Another Planet”.. hoping to get just the Grass package.

    So far my Interstellar astronaut base is looking quite good.. Wish me luck! πŸ™‚

    • Seba, I’m flattered to hear that my tutorial was helpful. Indeed, that’s a nice game level! Looking forward to your next videos.

    Hi! Currently I don’t have any ongoing projects due to exams approaching in school meaning I’m dedicating most of my time to school and any Blender work is just experimental to keep myself on my feet until I can get back into it. My latest project, however, won the Andrew Price Nature’s Fury competition.

    • Hi Alex. Saw your picture earlier, and it was one of my favorite renders for this competition. What I like about it is the rhythm, ivy, details and lighting. All in all, very nice image.

  88. Cyclonix Studios

    Hey I would love to get this awesome Pack!
    I’m working with Blender for a special school subject. You can form a group to get a project going. We are about to create a Science-Fiction movie only using Blender and Gimp. It’s difficult sometimes because our experience is limited. The modelling and unwrapping of our spaceship for the movie really was a pain. But now we finally reached a result we can be proud of. Our very own creation. But there is still a long and difficult way to go…

  89. Jacob S.

    Woop woop! in case I win, this.

  90. Adam

    Here is my little project that I finished a few minutes ago. Like you said every artist should have a nature render in their portfolio πŸ™‚

    Hi, I`m 23 girl from Poland πŸ™‚ Sorry for my English too… πŸ™‚ I started with Blender and 3D art about 7 months ago. So – I`m beginner. I love all your tutorials Gleb, and Andrew Price tutorials too… If not you – I will never stareted with this. But I`m wondering, there are any girls here? Please, I feel to alone with so many guys πŸ™‚ And thanks again Gleb!

    • I agree β€” I wish the gender gap wan’t so large…

    • Clockwork Harmony Studios

      Hi Nettia, Greetings from the United Kingdom. I know how you feel. I’ve been a Blender user for 5/6 years and have only recently started engaging with the Blender Community. There are a lot of guys here, but you’ll get used to it, and you’re definitely not alone, there are lots of female Blender users. We’re just not that vocal. Also, you’re English is pretty near perfect, so no need to apologise. Take care and welcome to the community.

  122. I wanna!!!

    Hi Gleb! I’ve been skipping around from project to project… and learning Russian… how to speak it, at least. Learning to write it will be a different challenge πŸ™‚

    • Alex, that sketch is really intriguing. Can’t wait to see it in 3d.

    Thank you and good luck!

  128. TARDIS Maker

    Hey, Gleb,

    I thought that I’d share what I’ve been working on for the last few days:

    Corvette Stingray C7, This is my second car, It’ll still require a lot of work but it should be pretty cool when it’s done.

    • Car topology can be the pain in the ass to make properly. Good luck!

      • TARDIS Maker

        Thanks, It is a pain, but I think it’s rewarding having a bit of a topology chalenge. I also have a thread on Blenderartists and the CGCookie forum for this so I should get some help when I need it.

  129. Charlie RingstrΓΆm

    I’m a hopefully future 3d artist. I haven’t really done anything yet, but I got the knowledge, and I’m currently working on my first big project, which is a cartoon character. I’m almost finished with the head, and it’s starting to look really good! I had no idea of that I was that good at sculpting! It still looks dead, but I’ll keep working on it until I’m happy. I’ll think I won’t abandon this project, I have worked on it four a looong time now, and I won’t quit. I wan’t to finalize this project in an epic render with your (Glebs) lightning tips, and then move on with smaller project.

    Im working in a Game with Unreal Engine 4, doing my models in Blender. The Grass Essentials Pack could be awesome for some jungle scenarios.

    • TARDIS Maker

      I feel like it would be uncompatible. It was designed for cycles. Plus, to get good results, you’d be looking a waaaaaay too many verts.

      It would be though.

      • Sonike

        Moving models from Blender to UE4 has not given me problems, i have to research about it.

Btw, currently I am working on some commercial projects, tvc, public service announcement, archviz, lowpoly asset for environment, and one personal project about making digital landscape with sattelite data. Once this project done, I want to share my workflow on my youtube channel.

    Thank you Gleb, you rock ! πŸ™‚

    Hi Gleb. Love your site and this a great way to track clients/customers.

  147. Tal R.

    Hey Gleb? How are you doing? It is nice to be able to send a message to someone who is very good with Blender. I’ve been learning Blender for only a year and a half now, and recently was able to finish my first mini project and am very happy, because between Blender and School and all that stuff, I get caught up in my life.

    Here is a link to my first “project” in which I did some of the CGI for a video my father was making (mainly making the whole butterfly and animating it a bit)


    • Hey, thanks for sharing your project with us. Your father is a talented man (I get the Depeche Mode vibe from watching this film), and you are too. Butterfly is integrated into the footage very well. All these image-based reflections look very convincing.

    I love nature scenes- the grass would really speed things up

    Hello! five year blender user here.
    Just commenting now for the chance to win, and to say thank you for sharing so much with the community. I have been following your tutorials and such since you started posting them.
    Keep it up and thank you very much,

  153. I work un product simulations and i like to increase my architectural skills.

  154. Dave Walls

    Hey Gleb – I’ve been enjoying your tutorials very much. I like your style and humor. Looking forward to hearing about the use of color in lighting. I struggle with this a lot. So I’m new to Blender, (6 months) and have put togther my first scene (posted). Next I would like to to a nature scene, and the Grass Essentials looks like a fantastic. and well thought out tool. I’d like to spend more time on the artwork than modeling the fine details of blades of grass. I’ll take a shot at winning the drawing. Keep up the great, and inspirational work.

    I guess no harm in trying and get lucky :3

    Hey there,
    So I’m a student currently studying in Melbourne, Australia, and spend most of my spare time learning Blender. I simply adore it, and have tried making grass many, many times, unable to get anything nice. I don’t feel alone in that endeavor anymore!

  175. Anthony[coolspotdreamer]

    Hell yeah!

  176. Zach Moore

    I’d love to get this

  177. Congratulations for the initiative. Well if I won this material would help me a lot. I intend to also work with video lessons in yoube. currently work with mascot animations in a small town within the Tocantins Brazil and that country their governments are very corrupt. for me to buy this material would have to pay 3x more its value in US dollars. which would result in 30% of my salary, and as the father of family is difficult I do this. Well thanks for the opportunity.

    No idea what else I have to say, just posting to enter the giveaway. I am a 13 year old who really needs help with nature renders.

    Hi Gleb. Im an architecture student and I started recently to use blender for archiviz. This would definitely step my game up πŸ˜€

    Hello! Actually, I had a very similar idea Andrew Price and CO. had before he released the grass essentials. Ever since years ago…

    I picked and collected several blades of grass and foliage, flattened those, and scanned it as textures. I took photo references of how the grass patches and a single grass blade looked like, as modelling references. I am continually in progress of building up my own grass and foliage pack.

    Main difference is that there isn’t any drivers for advanced particles system controls,as accuracy of the pack is partially based on the number of model variations.

    Initially, I have the intention of uploading it to blendswap for all blender users when its fully completed. But apparently, it doesn’t seem good to do so due to the recent release of grass essentials as a commercial product.

    I Wouldn’t mind at all not winning this,as I prefer it to be a continual challenge to create my very own high quality grass and foliage pack.

    Moreover, even if i get to win it, I would consider giving it to someone else since I do not want to end up copying the assets and claim it as part of my own creation for the grass and foliage pack.

    Pretty sure that ease of use of the grass essentials is more time effective as compared to mine.

    Anyway,I appreciate much by all you have done, Gleb Alexandrov. Thanks alot!

    • kokonus

      Even if your grass pack isnt ‘good’ compared to this pack.
      I really think you should still upload it.
      people who cannot afford this pack should still love to have a free one.

    Hello man. First of all let me thank you for your tuturials. I tried to create something for the Blenderguru’s competition but seems like I am nowhere near the mark. Thank.

    Currently working on my college thesis in animation, will put this to good use if I get it. Great giveaway though! πŸ™‚

  186. Alexander Fochtmann

    Hi, I am from Germany and I just started using blender for architectural visualization and would like to do some outdoor renders. I think the grass essentials pack is the
    perfect product for this purpose. This is the project I am currently working on, still not finished but I think I am getting somewhere.

  187. 5xx7xx

    Hahaha, I applaud the clever way to lure all the greedy lurkers like me to come and say “Hi”.

    So, hello, Gleb. I’ve been keeping my eye on you since I saw “Her Majesty’s Zeppelins” almost a year ago. There are other people with great skill in the CGI world, but there is an inspiring sense of beauty to your renders, which made you my favourite artist as far as Blender goes. I’ve also been curiously following your ever more serious efforts in making tutorials, and while I find your English and general ability to teach a bit lacking (I prefered the earlier form, with just text on screen, eg. the “Zeppelins” making-of video), the mind-blowing skills, the artistic sense, and the inspiration you bring to the table still make your tuts some of the very best out there. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all of that, and keep at it!

    (And so I’ve managed to make an almost meaningful comment without mentioning a word about myself. *evil laughter*)

    • Thank you so much for your kind, mate. And even while you didn’t mention a word about yourself, the text still contains the presence of its author. πŸ™‚

  191. Harley

    Hey Gleb, my name’s Harley. I’m an 18 year old CG artist and filmmaker and a huge fan of your work. I love nature projects (but suck at them) and have been drooling over the Grass Essentials Pack since the day it came out. I need to bulk out my portfolio ( with some more diverse work, namely nature renders – but I’m broke…

  192. ApatheticPenguin

    Hi all,
    I’m a beginning solo indie dev trying to figure out my way through Unreal Engine 4. I’ve been using Blender for about 2 years now, but I’ve never done any open scenery or foliage (I tried making a cactus once, and it was terrible). So if I got the Grass Essentials pack, it would be really helpful for learning how to make nice organic vegetation.

  193. StringyBob

    I am liking your cube tutorial very much ‘ 3D bastard!’… it very funny. You are plenty good fellow very talented and entertaining, good luck to you sir!

  194. Clockwork Harmony Studios

    Hi Gleb, Thank you for all your wonderful tutorials. Lighting has always been one of my weaker areas. I like how your tutorials are short, precise and to the point. Hope you keep making them. Good Luck with your lighting project book.

  195. Hey Gleb! Love the site, been here since it was called Blender-Game. πŸ˜‰ Always learning new helpful stuff from you! Keep up the great work!!! πŸ™‚

    • Joseph, I’m really happy to hear it πŸ™‚ thanks man.
