Marius Oberholster Hey! I'm having an incredible learning experience, not only learning how Blender works (yes, still learning), but also about Open-Source and the incredible software available. Stick around!

Flag tutorial is almost finished

Hey all!

I got the chance to work on the book again Saturday. This time on the flag tutorial and I am very very excited about the results so far!

I am still working on animation, but for static images the tutorial is about a page from finished. I want to include animation as this tutorial will then truly set the tutorial apart in proving that you can do a lot with procedural textures.

So far the tutorial covers how to use them with certain modifiers:
 - Subdivision Surface (making the displacement possible)
 - Wave (adding cycle movement detail)

Remember that this was the before:

(looks okay, but only from afar)

Without further ado, this is what the current progress of the flag looks like:

(they still need rope, so they are currently wireless, lol)

Hope you are looking forward to the book's release as much as I am. Currently, I am still working on the first part (with the completion of the flag tutorial, I can move on to next part), so I don't have a date for you yet, but I can tell you that I am very much looking forward to telling you as soon as I have one (^^,).

Remember that the above (including the flags themselves) were made with procedural textures.
For construction and color on the SA flag, I used this PD image and this Wikipedia page.
For the French flag, I used where I've seen it before all together with common sense that if something is divided in three, it's usually three equal parts and since 100/3=33.33333', I used such to make it.

I'll keep you posted on how the animation is going, with the plan of publishing a video showing the effecassy of procedural textures. The animation as I believe HE showed me to do it, will require some advanced work with the Graph Editor, so I am really excited about sharing that too. It will definitely surprise some of you!!

Have a great day everyone!!
Thank YOU very very much for showing me how to not only improve the flags, but how to go beyond in making it exceptional. I really appreciate all YOUR help JESUS!

"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."
