For Anime tutorial series 3 - Fixing eyes

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, February 17, 2016, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!


(see - the gap is restored to the eye's surround)

Welcome to part 3 of the For Anime series. This one is an appendix to the Make Human to Anime tutorial GOD gave me last year, around this time:



Male version in this tutorial:


Now, the problem I have encountered was nuts - the eye-outline thing annoyed me to no end, because as it would render, I would be like: "YEAH! It looks awesome!!" and when the eyes get outlined, my bubble would mercilessly burst,... hahaha. So, here is how to fix tha...

For Anime tutorial series 2 - Tree Technique

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, February 9, 2016, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

Yey, second tutorial for the week! hahaha. GOD is awesome!

Today I get to share with you a technique GOD showed me quite a while back and the coolest part about it, is that it turned out to work very well for anime style renders! :D
   Check it out!:



Just to show you a much stronger example:

Made from McLelun's tutorial, which you can check out here.
To composite toons and smooth shadows, check this video.

Hey all!

I have had this on my heart for quite a while, to do a series on modelling for anime style backgrounds. In this one, we look at Water Reflections:

ZTransparency Edge fix

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, February 3, 2016, In : Tips 
Hey all!

A while ago, I posted an article about the edge that ZTransparency (in Blender Render) creates around solid faces in front of it and sometimes possibly even behind it. Just as a reminder, here is the image:


That white line is the background - it's not supposed to be there.

Speed up renders in Blender

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, February 1, 2016, In : Tips 
Hey all!

Last week, I briefly talked about this topic as part of the latest update on the Esther 6 project - which you can read here. The reason for this post is to particularly focus on this topic and share some engine specific tricks that GOD showed me through personal leading and from a few articles, so let's get into it.

This will be mostly focused on Blender Render, as that is my engine of choice for the time, but I will talk about Cycles Render as well in another post - GOD willing.

Blende...

"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."
