  author={Jes{\'u}s Gumbau and Miguel Chover and Cristina Rebollo and Inmaculada Remolar},
This article presents a new method for foliage illumination which takes into account direct, indirect illumination and self-shadowing. Both indirect illumination and self-shadowing are approximated by means of a novel technique using depth maps. In addition, a new shadow casting algorithm is developed to render shadows produced by the foliage onto regular… CONTINUE READING
