About Me


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!

Just had to see if this still works in Cycles; it does!!

Hey all!

Very excited about sharing this particular image. While working on the first part of the book, HE showed me how to add snow, using only the Blend texture. And that is also a tutorial in the first section.

Anyway, on Cycles it is now called the Gradient texture and I wondered if it would still respond similarly or possibly even better. While I wouldn't necessarily call it better, I definitely like the almost stylistic cartoony background approach to how this looks.

Hope you like it too:



This was Previewed at only 20 samples, so that shows, if you keep it simple, you only need a few passes. If your lighting gets more complex, I'd suggest going up to 200-500 (without caustics being active) from my limited experience with Cycles so far.

Have a great one!!

PS, I'd like to do a bit of a giveaway with this one. If anyone is interested in having this as a wallpaper, let me know via the contact page or Facebook and I'll render a FullHD version of it.

Thank YOU!!!!!!

"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."
