Palm curves

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, December 9, 2015 Under: Learning
Hey all!

I have been using curves a while and I knew they could be tapered, but I thought that you would always only be able to do so through another curve or through programming (and I looked - though looking back when I did, I didn't even check youtube, hahaha). Anyway, GOD knew I wanted to know and lo and behold, like this or last week, there was the answer, in the beginning of a video I could not seem to find!! Thankfully GOD knows how to stay on me about things and HE helped me locate it. It is the video below:


(Very short video, very much worth the watch)

I am super thankful!!

Anyway, because I now received the info I needed, I could finally make a proper Palm Tree with curves, and here it is:


(Also very short and imo, worth the watch :D !)

I can only thank GOD for helping me in everything I take on. This video, as short as it is and as simple as it is, still took a considerable amount of work to texture. Not like I'm gonna freak out if I have to do it again much, but if I told you it's all procedural textures, you can guess it took a little bit of effort and a lot of leading! haha. I sent it to some friends and one said it looked like a dinosaur tail (an earlier render then above) and I had to admit, he was right, hahaha.

Anywho, I really hope you guys luv it too!!

Have a great one and GOD bless!

"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

About Me


Marius Oberholster Hey! I've been doing this full-time since July of 2011. It has been an incredible learning experience, not only learning how Blender works (still learning), but also about Open-Source and the incredible software available. ----------- This Blog will be a way to stay up to date on all things Panther Dynamics as well as some personal stuff as well.
