Custom brick texture - All procedural

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, July 4, 2014, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey all!

Quick Blog Tutorial time again!

Recently, I saw someone having done their own brick texture and immediately I was wowed, because they did not use the typical brick texture, except maybe to color, but, the bricks were nicely rounded and so, yesterday, GOD challenged me to make one for the verse image below, showing a before and after of compositing for a post on the portfolio blog:

Old renders are ready-to-use material

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, March 10, 2014, In : Tips 
Hey all!

Feels like forever since the last post, but it seems that I'm only going to be able to do weekly posts for a while. Long story, but, for today, I would like to share a secret with you. A very very big one that the lecturers go on about when you study design.

That secret is: The more work you finish, the more work you have to fall back on for later projects; a library of free material if you will.

For example, you all know I've done a series of images based on the 4 seasons by Vivaldi. N...

A little progress report

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, February 18, 2014, In : wip 
Hey everyone!!

Today I get to share a little progress shot from something I'm currently working on:


Currently, this looks more like a caustics study, but actually the scene as it sits is exactly that! It's part of prep work. The ocean floor is right (in terms of distance and possibly color) and so is a lot of the compositing. It has an old-style photo feel that I am really really liking so far.

Now, when I post something, I want it to benefit you, so I want to give you some sort of help. Today, ...

Tiles down, trees up

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, March 8, 2013, In : General 
Hey all!

Only started the tree tutorial and almost finished. Yey!

Has been quite a bit of work and I am really jazzed about the result. In it, you will be shown how to do a little something like this:


I like this image a lot and I made like two other compositions, but this one just worked the best for the tutorial. While this is merely a proof of concept, I leave it up to you to really push it further in making it work in your scene (I don't have a scene requiring trees right now, so there is no...

Hey all!!

I want to give you all a freebie on account of all the visitors to the site. 65 per week is a good number so far and I really appreciate every reader!!

The last week or so, I've done work with camera tracking, to try and figure out how I can best work with it and get a great result and HE has given some great advice on working with them and some features you may not know about in Blender.

- Plan your shot
There are many things to consider, one of them is the amount of complex shapes you...

Missing Person: Erhard Enslin

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, July 31, 2012, In : Missing Persons 
A friend of mine's cousin went missing on Friday. Though they don't know the details of the how and why yet, they and I do ask for your assistance to blog this everywhere you can and to use social networking as far as you can.
To download the images at full resolution, simply left-click them and they should open the full-res I have available. If it just opens it, you can right-click it and save it.

Here is a flyer with all the info I have available to me:


You can also use this image as you profi...

"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
