This thesis discusses the creation of computer generated photorealistic Spanish moss, a plant that grows in trees in the American Southeast. In order to replicate the plant, a Renderman procedural shader was used that included hair-like qualities in order to replicate the surface properties of Spanish moss. The necessary attributes, how they are used in the code, and final results of the shader applied to a moss model are included in this paper.
