Ivies now have some leaves

Hey all!

This is what the current preview render looks like:


I adjusted the above a bit, because it's lighting isn't finished yet and so it was a bit on the dark side, environmentally speaking, haha. Anyway, just added some brightness and contrast.

The leaves themselves are the most difficult and personally, I have to admit I couldn't get them as close to the real thing as I had hoped, but, I am very happy with the leaf shape:

I've seen this three-point shape not nearly as often as I would like t...

Hey all!

Seems I might have been a smidge too technical yesterday, haha.

Displacement is what it says, something that is shifted from it's original spot....

Before today I thought that Cycles could only use the displacement modifier to create bumps and other stuff on the surface when using procedural textures to define those bumps and dents. While that does work, it only supports a single texture at a time and not a whol...

Creating old wood with paint chipping off

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, June 5, 2012, In : wip 
I've always liked the rustic look. It's very antique-ish, lol. But getting it to look right using procedural textures only is where the challenge comes in.

Last week I posted here about how the wood alone looks and I showed you a scaled Node system, but today I want to show the progress made from that initial look to the finished product now representin' as my personal facebook cover.

Here is where it was last week:


Looked okay, but remember I felt that most of the lines were too uniform.

I worke...

"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."
