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 ...

For Anime tutorial series 3 - Fixing eyes

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, February 17, 2016, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!


(see - the gap is restored to the eye's surround)

Welcome to part 3 of the For Anime series. This one is an appendix to the Make Human to Anime tutorial GOD gave me last year, around this time:



Male version in this tutorial:


Now, the problem I have encountered was nuts - the eye-outline thing annoyed me to no end, because as it would render, I would be like: "YEAH! It looks awesome!!" and when the eyes get outlined, my bubble would mercilessly burst,... hahaha. So, here is how to fix tha...

Progress a white eagle

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, August 25, 2014, In : The Gospel 
Hey all!

I recently asked permission to use a fantastic song for a music video that I felt GOD put on my heart to do.
I was practicing on Saturday when I felt like GOD told me I should message this singer to use his song and I didn't do it immediately, because I don't just jump on a massive project, unless I'm sure that this could really be GOD. So, after the unction didn't go away after a few hours, I finally messaged him and he was incredibly kind and generous, however he could not give me pe...

A few tips on Freestyle rendering

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, August 19, 2014, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

Firstly, thanx to all those who visit regularly. I hope you find the information here useful!

Anyway, getting on today's post; Freestyle! :D

Just to show you I know a little about it, I put together a collage of renders:



Freestyle, as you all know, is that feature (now in Cycles too), that allows you to add outlines to 3D shapes, like cartoons.

I've been working with freestyle for a while now and have it to the point, where I just adjust line thickness and then that's it, so, today, I wan...

A take on toon shading_Compositing

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, May 27, 2014, In : Tips 
Hey all!

When I saw I hadn't shared this yet, I was really surprised. Must be because I'm so tired, hahaha. No worries, here we go:

(complete scene - Blender Render + Freestyle + Compositing)

When GOD gave me the idea for this image, I really felt fear creep onto me that it would not look good and oh snap! I am very happy with this one's result. It did not come out at all like I imagined it would. It is always such a blessing when that happens, so this one will be making it to the Home page.

Anyw...

Toon Shading_an improvement

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, April 25, 2014, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey there everyone!

Firstly, I want to say thanx to the people from the Blender Facebook group here and more precisely, here.

I found out a lot about toon shading here, though it did not produce what I wanted - it did however bring me a heck of a lot closer, haha. I would never have thought of using full oversampling nor about turn the auto ray bias off, so huge thanx there!

Though these methods are great, there are issues here. If you leave on the auto ray bias, you get this (see the collar are...

Something different

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, April 30, 2013, In : Tips 
Hey all!

Yesterday afternoon I wanted to do something different, so I started playing around with the tooning features Blender already has, before Freestyle becomes official. I want to know what I can use to add effects and so on, if it is required initially :). Also, I see many renders don't maintain a solid line scale to decrease detail as an object becomes smaller in relation to the frame. For example, look below at the Suzanne in the background.

So, I tested it with Suzanne:


This combines va...

Started with the 3D tutorial today!!

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, July 19, 2012, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!!

I started with the 3D render tutorial today and it is going well, but the scene I used is really not making the method look good, so I am very much considering redoing it, so the final result will be a more realistic representation of what you would get in an actual scene. Maybe applying it to an existing project as a proper example for the cover. The music room should do a good job (^^,).

Not promising, but will let ya know when it is ready for download!! (^v^)

Have a great day!!
Thank...

3D in Blender using only one render

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, July 13, 2012, In : Tutorials 
Last night before I went to bed inspiration hit and I just had to try and get this to work right and I tried and tried and tried until 'bout half past eleven and then I saw the render was just not working. No matter what combination of nodes I tried, it just wouldn't work, however, I knew it was possible.

So this morning after getting up and turning on my PC I just had to keep trying again and I think I finally have a good result in not only color mixing, but also overall depth. This is not pe...

Brilliant Scanner Software for windows; Documalis!!!

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, May 21, 2012, In : Recommendation 
Recently my Linux crashed and I was forced to move to Windows and from now on work on that and was really dissapointed to find that our scanner's software wasn't commercially licensed (and that's the scanner's own scanning application). Anyway, so I went searching for something and after a maybe two or so days of searching, HE lead me to Documalis. It's a France based (from the domain on the e-mail and the French website) company that created a Freeware scanner application. In it's downloaded...

"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."
