First of I know solidworks is not meant as a surfacing program but still I do really like the surfacing tools in solidworks and find them easy to work.

My question is does anybody have any idea on how I can acheive more realistic acanthus leaves by surfacing in solidworks?

I have tried serveral times but I have been unable to achieve realistic looking flower. This was one of my projects of the Corinthian capital. I was able to achieve a somewhat good relust but still it doesnt look natural. I faced a lot of frustration and lot of work took me a month but this is what I got. Looks pretty good in the render though but still not natural

and composite order utilizing same methods




anybody have any recomandation on how I can improve the leaves?
