Tutorial for the node groups

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Saturday, October 27, 2018, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

Recently I got to share some seriously awesome node groups with you guys and today I get to share a tutorial about how some of them work (based on how a few works, you'll get how I was led to build them and be able to use them easily).


GOD is so amazing!! (^^,)

Because I know a lot of you are new to nodes, I would like to make a short FAQ here about what they are and why they are what they are. There was a time in my life when I opened the node editor and promptly closed it, hahaha, so ...

2D to 3D conversion - Proposal

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, April 9, 2018, In : proposals 
Hey all!

I had the amazing priviledge of being able to write another proposal on Right-Click Select! Shockingly, I didn't actually blog about it, so that is what this is! Yay, hahaha!

So the basic idea is that you use the existing depth information (mist pass) to slice up the scene in as many slices as possible, causing something like this:



This means that you can now shift these slices and create what your eyes will see. I was extremely opposed to it, but it actually does make more sense to do ...

2D animation in 3D software

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, June 2, 2014, In : Tips 
Hey all

Today I'd like to take a look at a previous image I had made, also toon shading, but reveal a clever trick I don't think you may know yet, and if you do, it's a great reminder! :D

First, the image:


This message is paramount to you having a peaceful mind and heart - basically, garbage in, garbage out. What that means is, if you think on sinful things, lustful things and you keep exposing yourself to that, you produce toxicity in your mind and heart. Sin is physically and spiritually bad f...

Toons, the conclusion_haha

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, November 22, 2013, In : Blender News 
Hey all!

Looks like we're 5 for 5 this week!! Amazing!! Huge blessing! Only 3 posts on tooning though.

Now, today is a really special day in regards to tooning, because, we have been working on this fantastic topic all week. With a lot of grace and teamwork, we got a spectacular result and learned quite a bit. So, let's recap.

When we started the week, I shared a very comic-like style with you all, focused on normal influence of the ramp in both Diffuse and Specular options. It looks fantastic, ...

New 3D Tutorial

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, October 15, 2013, In : Tutorials 
Hey all,

Super excited to be sharing this with you today! The new 3D tutorial is finally up!!

Just to show you what it can do, I made a little reel:


You can get the tutorial here!

Remember that this is a speed method and far from perfect. It is strictly applied in the compositor and can produce a result in a matter of seconds (depending on your compositing complexity and resolution).

Origin of this method:
For a long time, I was being taught how to use procedural textures and through that, I learne...

Client of the month certificate

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, September 24, 2012, In : General 
Hey all!

My brother is a personal trainer and a very good one at that. To inspire his clients to push as hard as they can, he wants to give them a certificate system. One that goes as the title of the post; the client that achieves the best results in that month, is client of the month and receives this certificate with their name on it:



I think it is a fantastic idea and I really enjoyed working on it. Originally, I wondered how we would put this thing together, but my brother is just the idea...

3D Tutorial is finally completed!!! OOOH!!!!

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, July 25, 2012, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

As you can see, I am very excited to announce the release of the 3D tutorial (you know, 3D with a single render). Anyway, you can find it here, under the Free Blender Tutorials section on the home page.

Here is the final cover of the tutorial:


I went for the blue and red line for obvious reasons, but the rest are images from experiments trying to get a good result.

Hope you enjoy the tutorial!

Thank YOU very very very very much for all the help and guidance! YOU rock JESUS!

Current tutorial image change

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, July 23, 2012, In : General 
Hey all!

I've been thinking about the image I wanted to use for the cover of the 3D tutorial and although the current one looks cool, it is still very much like looking into a bumpy cube = no proper depth for different positions.

So the plan is to not only finish the tutorial today, but to also fix the cover image and hopefully get it posted tomorrow!

If it works (and I pray it does, because it really seems like the HOLY SPIRIT's leading), the new cover will be a very cool surprise. If you see t...

Tutorial cover image

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, July 20, 2012, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

I was working on the tutorial and the test scene was really not doing the effect justice, so I decided to add the method to an old, highly detailed scene I did a while back; the music room.

You can see the depth the clearest along the sofa on the right, the piano's cover over the guitar and on the music stand next to the wall.

It clearly shows that the effect does work and works well in a scene, but as it goes, the final image will always be darker in this case, because the anaglyph's b...

3D Portfolio section!

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, July 6, 2012, In : General 
I recently applied for a job and needed a proper portfolio of my 3D work (and I made sure I added only what HE wanted in) and you can check it out using the navigation at the top (far right).

Obviously, they will not remain the best works and will be replaced by other pieces as I learn and grow in skill, but I like the work so far!

Hope you enjoy scrolling through it!

Oh, about the feature pic. I did a comparison a while back between Cycles Render and Blender Render for the book I'm still workin...

New project on at BlenderArtist.org

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, February 10, 2012, In : wip 
My brother wanted me to portray him as some sort of business warrior. I asked HIM how that would look and these sketches was the result:

I've also done a few things including the sword:



This is not the final sword, because I edited it and added a handle. For more info check out BlenderArtists.org in the Business Warrior thread.

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."
