Landscape Elements: Rocks

Thank you for visiting Landscape Elements: Rocks!!! This little project is an active, ongoing collection of (currently 6) small rocks designated for your nature, architectural, or still-life scenes. These rocks are well-suited for any scene that can be complimented with a touch of rugged aesthetic to break up the perfection of "soft" elements.


The Rocks – Diamonds in the Rough Garden

All rocks are derived from photogrammetry, ensuring visible natural rock patterns and natural mesh-texture interaction. All rock textures are baked at 4K resolution and include a multi-resolution modifer for additional detail. 



  • N-gon Free
  • Low-Poly
  • Multiresolution






The Materials – Your Key to the Kingdom

One Uber Node – Every individual rock features a photorealism based “uber node” with versatile abilities ranging from the saturation of the rock, adding moss, to a snowfall pattern. (Yes, snow is featured.)  Crucial to the functionality of all these different options is an on/off switch. Each element of the rock (dirt, moss, snow) is controlled by a simple switch. There is much to be discovered, included in the .blend file is a text document with straightforward explanations of each node option. A few adjustments to the sliders is usually all it takes to complete change the look of your rock!
