ICL approached me with a question you don't hear every day,

"can you visualize the germination process of grass-seeds?"

Yes we can.
All we had to work with were a couple dark and grainy pictures, but using a couple of techniques to extract as much detail as we could we were able to get a base to make 3D models. 
We worked with Daniel Clasquin, a great 3D sculptor, to create very high detailed 3D models of the seeds.
These models mean that we can high resolution pictures of the seeds while they are growing, and it means we can present them properly.
After the models were finished and looking great, we created the 2D textures.

One quality of almost all organic material is that light travels through it, like when you put a flashlight under your fingers and they turn blood-red.
It's important to use these real-world materials to get a plausible image.
They look like aliens don't they?
These images are now used in promotional material for ICL's on and offline presentations. A next step would be to 3D print these digital models.
These projects challenge Doublemen 3D Design to think outside of the borders of design and we're grateful for the opportunity to be tested like this.
