Some new additions

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Saturday, March 29, 2014, In : General 
Good day everyone!

Recently I've been able to push out work on a scale that amazes me when I look back on it and I am very very thankful to have been able to and some of these works have been added to the portfolio site.
These works cover three types:
- Video Thumbnail
- Animation
- Verse image

Granted, I did not upload everything and it only occurred to me while writing this, that I didn't, haha.

Under video thumbnails and verse images, these pieces have stood out for me the most:

Out of the video w...

Moving onto video

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, March 27, 2014, In : Teaching and prayer 
Heya everyone!

Today I get to share a recent project. Now, I'm not new to video, yet I still feel like a total amateur, haha. Evenso, I'm rather thankful with how this turned out:

While I know GOD helped me make most of what you see, I'm not the only one who put the final together, that was Sterling. I only made the pieces, he stuck them together. Be sure to check out his SCF Mobile for his programming work and Cross and Djsterf.Net for his ministry work.

Compositing solution

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, March 24, 2014, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey all!

Been a long time since I've put up a QBT and I think we're due for one!

Today's QBT is about compositing and finally, saving that result. See, recently, Andrew Price, from Blender Guru, reported what he and possibly a lot of other users, thought was a bug. Honestly, I didn't, but I did think it was odd. Basically, it does not refresh the compositing results to the UV/Image editor, unless you keep it open the whole time.

There is, however, a solution. When you composite, you typically us...

Abstract backgrounds and aliases

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, March 18, 2014, In : Tips 
Hey all!

Last week, Andrew Price, released a new tutorial on creating abstract backgrounds. I followed this tutorial for Cycles, but in Blender Render and I think it's great that there has been one done on this, because there is such a vast use for such backgrounds, especially if you can think outside the box on these sorts of things. Here's mine:

(Didn't finish the tutorial to see his, because most of it was done in Photoshop and
Cycles has better DOF than Blender Render has, but I like this re...

Old renders are ready-to-use material

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, March 10, 2014, In : Tips 
Hey all!

Feels like forever since the last post, but it seems that I'm only going to be able to do weekly posts for a while. Long story, but, for today, I would like to share a secret with you. A very very big one that the lecturers go on about when you study design.

That secret is: The more work you finish, the more work you have to fall back on for later projects; a library of free material if you will.

For example, you all know I've done a series of images based on the 4 seasons by Vivaldi. N...

Verse images

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, March 4, 2014, In : Teaching and prayer 
Hey all!

On Monday, aka yesterday for most, I made a post on the Facebook page on verse images I was given the opportunity to make. Since there are quite a few and you may not have liked our ministry page just yet, I added the images here for you to enjoy!

(All the above was made with Blender)

(The above three were made using Inkscape)
(Some finishing and/or cropping was done with The Gimp)

There are a few more and quite a few more ideas I still need to put to images, but thus far, these are what ...

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen." Revelation 22:18-21
