I did a render of this old model using Wide Dynamic Rendering.
Some lollipops quickly done in order to test some materials. Can be downloaded on blendswap here.
I like small easter eggs hiden in animated movies and I think we don’t have enough funny props on blendswap, so here is one inspired by a real Linux washing powder :
You can download it on blendswap here !
Well, one year without posting on this blog, busy with lot of things (family, MOOC, online classes, work…). But I am still practicing 3D, and I actually found some time to post things on G+ and not here. 3Doodle of this weekend, which is making a great wallpaper :
As an animator, you need some references for motion, and luckily the great work of Eadweard Muybridge is floating all around on the Internet (it is in Public Domain in most countries)…
So you have found this nice board showing pictures of a running cat, and you are curious to see how it feels animated, you want to study it in motion…
By using an orthographic camera, the addon “import images as planes” and the auto-key feature of blender, you can very quickly translate the plane frame by frame in camera view (click for animation) : Here is a gif made with gimp from the opengl render output of blender : And here you will find the blend with the texture packed !
Ok, here is a description of one part of my work, teaching things I am still learning ! In this case, digital drawing (or painting if you prefer, and I think you learn about it all your life).
The objective of this post is to give some ideas to people wishing to introduce school children to digital painting but who are a little scared or don’t know where to start !
Based on this making-of by Michel Strombeck I made this image for fun. Skin shader is not as good as I wish, but I have spent enough time on it.
This is my new wallpaper (looks great on lightdm) :
I ended with it after following this great tutorial by Blender Cookie.
The shape is generated from a track by Mogwai (friend of the night) and the glowing rainbow colors are at the opposite of the mood of the music video.
The process is quite interesting, and it makes me working in python, so I will do some similar pictures in near future, trying to catch the spirit of the song with the shapes and the colors.
Here you can get the WQHD picture if you want.
