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!

New competition and some news

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, February 10, 2014 Under: Blender News
Hey all!!

There are a few topics for today's post:
- New Blender Guru Competition
- Texture Baking
- Content call (BlenderArt Magazine)

 - New BlenderGuru Competition
Now, it's been a while since my last post and it feels like months, even though it's only been like a week, haha. Anywho, firstly, there is a new competition from Andrew; Characters! Oooh! I would absolutely luv to participate in this one and I hope you will. I haven't been able to for the last few, for various reasons, but this one is a serious challenge. If you look around my work, you will notice a strong lack of humans and human faces, hahaha. Why? Because it's very very difficult, though very very necessary! So, challenge yourself, even if it doesn't look all that great! Give it a shot!
 - Check out the competition post here!
 - And the competition itself, here

 - Texture Baking
Also some spectacular news is that Cycles is getting texture baking!! There's already a build you can try that BlenderNerd linked to from Facebook. I'm super excited about this, as before there was no way to output it and rigging does not respond well to Generated Coordinates, so wow!!
 - You can see the post here

 - Content Call (BlenderArt Magazine)
Finally, the BlenderArt magazine has a new call for content. Granted this post is a few days after, but, there is still plenty of time. The new theme for the next issue is: Cycles Circus! It's basically everything Cycles and is open to pretty much anything from animation to rendering, so do try to submit something!
 - You can find the call for content and the sign-up for the newsletter and future calls, here

And that's it for today's news and I hope you've been made aware of a lot more than the usual and that you're excited about the above as well!

Do remember to check out the Blender Game Engine section as well as my first Blender video tutorial under the Video Tutorials section. Don't forget to stop by the blog's side-bar and check out Evolution Vs GOD; it's absolutely a must see!

Have a fantastic week and looking forward to seeing your work!

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."
Revelation 22:18-21
