New Blender Guru Competition - Christmas

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, November 14, 2013, In : Blender Guru Competitions 
Hey all!

This morning Andrew sent out the e-mail for the new Blender Guru competition; Christmas!

Super excited and I have currently pretty much no clue as to what to do, haha. Well, not no clue, I do know the theme, haha.

Anyway, check it out and hopefully we'll see your work there too!

Here is the link to the competition, rules, inspiration etc.

Have a great one and remember to watch the time zone Andrew uses. If at all possible for you, to be sure you are on time, submit at the latest your imag...

Blender Guru Competition time again!

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, August 2, 2013, In : Blender Guru Competitions 
Hey all!

It's been a while since Andrew posted a competition, but yesterday it was announced again! This time, he took to the social networks for a theme suggestion. While he has done this in the past, this was the first time I saw this too as a prevailing theme suggestion, along with sci-fi and a few others.

For this edition, we have a more historical approach; Ancient Civilizations! A very broad theme indeed and many many things can pertain to it, but the best part is, your work just has to r...

Quickly now :)!!!

This is your friendly call to finish and submit your entries for the Blender Guru competition! You have literally just under a work week (5 days) left to get yours in. Some of the entries can make you feel that yours doesn't stand a chance, but everyone has a chance if they excel in the criteria so don't give up just because you may not be great at modeling just yet!

Check out the competition page for a refresher on when (remember, time zones apply) and where to submit your entry!

Have a g...

Blender Guru Competition Entry - Photo Realism

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, June 26, 2012, In : Blender Guru Competitions 
What a piece of work!! I really pushed my PC for the max on this one. It was tough to say the least.

For about 3 weeks, I worked on almost this project only (aside from helping my parents out and my brother with their design requests). It was a huge undertaking to model so many things for just one scene, but I learned a lot from Andrew's tutorials and while writing the book on procedural textures (still in progress), HE really showed me a lot of things I could do to get even very complex textu...

The results of the Perfect Holiday competition!

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, May 18, 2012, In : Blender Guru Competitions 
After two or three weeks of waiting, the results are finally in! As excited and nervous as I was when I saw the post on FB, I was just as disappointed to see my entry wasn't even added to the page of the results...
That could be for many reasons, but the most likely is that he may have missed it entirely or just forgot about it, because I submit mine in a different way.

See, the website he uses for the submissions, prohibits religious content, so as someone who is registered on that site, I the...

Blender Guru competition entry - The Perfect Holiday

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, April 17, 2012, In : Blender Guru Competitions 
My idea of a perfect holiday HE will not permit me to depict for various reasons, but HE did let me make this entry, because second to the absolute perfect holiday, this would be it. Seclusion, ambient noise, calmness and all the luxuries of modern living (^^,).

This also has a link to the book I'm working on, because it was entirely done with procedural textures (even the artwork on the wall you see half-way).

Hope you like it as much as I did making it!!

"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
