For anime - New Style Candle

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, January 19, 2017, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

Oh yes! Finally got to do another tutorial - PRAISE GOD!! :D


Thank YOU LORD!

Another one in the sub-series on fire, I get to show you how to create a more modern style, and more animated style, of candle flame that you can use in your animations. Thankfully, we now have three in the series! I definitely need to make a subsection in the tutorial sections! haha.

You may recall that this candle style features in Esther 6:


(GOD is awesome!!)

While this is not exactly the same method, in that t...

SSS and realism

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, June 21, 2016, In : Learning 
Hey all!

For a while I've wanted to try making a Make Human character look real, but never really got to it. We're not talking years here, but a month or so, until a specific verse image about three weeks ago:



Ever since this one was made, I've really wanted to make a post about it, but I felt like GOD wanted it to publish on the ministry page first, before putting it out here. I don't know why, but I trust HIM and today is the day I get to share it with you guys.

Expressive Elements

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, May 18, 2016, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!


(Praise GOD!! This one was so much work and got done so fast! Wow!)

As you can clearly see, haha, there is a new tutorial! Like the thumbnail suggests, I get to show you 9 expressive elements found in anime today that really does set it apart.

For a short while (say a few weeks), I've increasingly felt a strong desire to do a tutorial, but nothing on the list GOD gave me, really stood out. Until this particular video list came about. I knew that I knew, this was the next video and I am ...

Make Human to chibi WIP

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, March 3, 2016, In : wip 
Hey all!

Recently, I've had someone comment on the Make Human to anime tutorial, asking how far the geometry edits can be pushed in Blender. The answer is: "Surprisingly far". Of course, this means he wants to keep the rig intact and that does mean your edits are limited, a lot more so than if you were to model and rig it yourself - one of the advantages of Make Human is that most of the work is already done.

Now, for the tutorial, I got this result:

(I still luv this result!!! :D)

For some, it i...

Water

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, October 6, 2015, In : Just for fun 
Hey all!!

The theme for the Make Human competition this month (October 2015) is Supernatural. Below is my entry and the post with it :D


Theme:
The entry for October is called "Water". I thought it would be a clever title, because people will definitely wonder "Water?! What did he do?" haha.
This one is of JESUS walking on the water, specifically from Matthew 14. That has to be one of the coolest supernatural things HE did, apart from going to the cross on purpose.

Process:
In the initial render, I ...

Quick Tip: Animation Speed Adjustment

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, August 24, 2015, In : Tips 
Hey all!

Yey for a new video, check it out:


(Character was made using Make Human)

Know JESUS yet? GOD is reaching out to you through these tutorials. HE loves you more than you can imagine and wants you to know HIM. Not because HE's lonely, but because HE loves you and paid a heavy price to enable you to go to Heaven, where HE is. See, we all have sinned in some way shape or form. That makes us guilty before GOD. If you have ever said that you hated someone, in GOD's standard, you have committed...

Teeth but no nails

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, July 16, 2015, In : Learning 
Hey all!

This post has an interesting story. I was kinda excited when GOD told me to post this, but I did not really get to it when I wanted to - HE does that so I'll write things down. But guess what I did not do - write it down, haha. Progress is hard..., but so worth it! So I was sitting at my desk yesterday or the day before and I wanted to write you guys something and I sat here and went: "Nothin'! I got nothing!" hahaha. All I knew was GOD gave me something to write and I could not remem...

RUN

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Saturday, July 11, 2015, In : General 
Hey all!

Most of you know I use Make Human to make characters in an anime style and I really really like the program. Well, they recently, like as in June 2015, started hosting competitions. Nothing fancy, but it's a nice way to push yourself to actually finish something and do something with what you've learned. So, I've entered for June and I'm also entering for July. Just for the sake of posting it, here is my July Entry - the theme word is Action:


If it weren't obvious yet, the name of the ...

Lip-syncing in Blender

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, June 30, 2015, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

This is the big one that GOD wanted me to make shortly after the Make Human to Anime one. Unfortunately, I didn't do it in a timely fashion, and I am hugely grateful for the help HE gave on the others, but I am happy to say it's here and now and done!


(Click to view on YouTube - opens in a new tab or window depending on browser)

I am very happy with this video for a few reasons. The biggest of which is that this one kinda forms part two and three of the Make Human to Anime tutorial, by ...

Comic Style in Blender

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, June 11, 2015, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!!

Time for another video tutorial!! I'm really enjoying making these and I'm glad to see that you guys still enjoy watching them. The Make Human to Anime one is almost at a 1000 views! GOD is awesome!! Thank you for watching!

Today, we cover something a little different, comic shading! Oh yes! I don't know about you guys, but I really like the look that some comics have. Some have really smooth shading while others have a more flat approach. May have something to do with budget and time...

Tutorials_Make it your own

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Saturday, May 30, 2015, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!!

I was amazed today! Those of you who follow me online, know about my recent tutorial about using Make Human to make Anime characters in Blender, well, this just thrilled me!

This morning I woke up as usual, and I checked my e-mail shortly after and I saw that Alimayo had posted a new video and the title in the e-mail that was visible was approx.:
"How to make a character look like..." and I was immediately saying to GOD, "No!" (as in amazement "no way, this can't be, this would be sooo...

Make Human to Anime in Blender

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, May 20, 2015, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!



A tutorial covering how to model using Make Human, so your rig and your modifications in Blender are minimal and you still get that anime look you are after. Not only that, I also show you how to composite a background in so you have that painterly feel as well. Go all out with your own art pieces! :D


Check the description for more information
(Advanced tutorial - I go fast and I didn't have screen cast keys, so this does require good knowledge of the interface)

Lipsyncing simplified

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, April 30, 2015, In : Tips 
Hey all!

This is one I am very excited about writing! A while ago, I did a test in lipsyncing and I used a vector based method of doing it, not vector as in the PC does everything, but like hard vector, as in cell animation. That went fine, but it was not accurate  to the level that I really wanted it to be, but I saw an amazing experiment a while back in the Blender community on Google+. Someone there did lipsyncing by backing audio to F-curves. Not a new concept to me, but the idea to use it...

Anime with Make Human + Blender

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, April 17, 2015, In : Learning 
Hey all!

Firstly, wow, this was a challenge! Still is a huge one, because I am yet to accomplish a proper hair result. Not to mention that I've only gotten one good eye, hahaha.

Now, not knocking Make Human at all. It is a fantastic program, but it is not yet suited for anime creation natively, but they do want to add it and need all the help they can get. Unfortunately, I'm nowhere close to that. What GOD helped me do here, was simply make a model and modify it in Blender to have the fe...

"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."
