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!

Many adjustments later

A lot has happened since the last Blog Update!!!!!! The bottom two shelves' books are finished!!

On the thread a user commented that the titles on the spines looked too big. We have a lot of books and I double checked and decided to show him that the smoothing enhances and amplifies rounding. The below shows how the medium book looks like in 3DView with flat shading. As you can see the title sits nice and snug.


Here's the bottom two shelves in close-up:

(all titles and covers are fictional)

After the above and overall render, people were a bit harsh with their fault-finding. I was a little upset, but when I calmed down, I saw they were right and a lot had to be enhanced. Starting with loose standing chairs. Left: Old look. Right: New version.

The guitar needed a bracket to hang on the wall as it does. One user posted a reference image to one and I looked at it and made something similar, and a bit bigger, but thinner:

(look at the bottom and on the top half of the neck)

Finally I got to the couches. One of the comments was that they are too low-poly (low 3D detail) for the scene. I saw what he meant, because they had sharp edges everywhere. So I spent some time on the couch and the matching loveseat. Personally I think they are done, except for the feet (they hover at the moment, lol), but I may work on them a little bit more, especially the sofa.

(check the folds near the arm rests)

After the couch render completed, I saw the wall looked stretched, so I fixed that as well:


And how does it look so far?

(not the best angle, I know, LOL)

"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
