Hey all!

Super glad to be able to get this video done. I have quite a story behind this one that I know you are gonna luv reading, so to prevent the temptation of watching first, the tutorial is at the bottom of the post.

Why cover caustics in Cycles when it was done in Blender Render already?

Hey all!

Bible Animations - Exodus

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, March 21, 2017, In : General 
Hey all!!

This blog is profoundly quiet for the main reason that I'm working on an animation about Exodus 7-12,  KJV. For clarity, that means chapters 7-12. These cover the 10 plagues and their exit after the first Passover, but stops before the read sea,

Just to give you a reminder, check out this playlist:

GOD is super great!!

If you want to continue seeing steady posts, for the moment, that will be the most active blog for the time being. I totally recommend stopping by beyond checking out the...

"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
