Once the trees were done, I started with the ground scenery. I always use this sequence, since I destroyed my ground scenery often while drilling holes for the trees. It’s also hard to plan correctly which tree will be set on which place and so on.
I use ready-made grass foliages from Busch in different textures, together with Woodland clump foliages to make bushes. The mixture of these materials will result in a well over grown ground scenery which is quite perfect for such a backwood scenery. Before I started with the grasses, I added shadows and path ways with the airbrush directly to the fine turf ground cover.
The ground scenery will take some while since the progress is slower than with the trees.
