In this free texture download we are including 10 Ivy.tgas rendered at 2048×2048 / 32bit for commercial or personal use.
These are great for overlaying other textures, sides of buildings, or using as alpha cards for an in-game environment.
Adding some Ivy to a render (Not the poison stuff) can really make it pop, and or add that extra 10% of detail to bring your render to more of a final state. After playing with of these plugins (free for both), it is just darn fun. I found myself turning off leaves to generate a noisy grunge map, or adding various geo shapes to watch this procedurally grow live in my viewport. Very neat stuff.
These renders were generated using the http://www.guruware.at/ plugin by Maui Sun. This particular plugin is a 3D Studio Max plugin, but was based on and inspired by the stand alone IVY application http://graphics.uni-konstanz.de/~luft/ivy_generator/ developed by Thomas Luft. Which the Blender in side of us can appreciate.
Below are the links to the 2 Free IVY generators.

Hope you enjoy and have some fun. If you do something interested with these generators, or the cards post it below in the comments.
