Marius Oberholster Hey! I'm having an incredible learning experience, not only learning how Blender works (yes, still learning), but also about Open-Source and the incredible software available. Stick around!

Style watch

Hey all!

I totally encourage you all to check out this post.

When you do research on how anime's are made (and any old cartoons), you find that the backgrounds are almost always hand painted. As far as Blender work goes, there's no way (unless GOD tells me to), that I'm going to hand paint every background for a project I'm currently working on. This is a test of an environment with a painterly look to the background and foreground that would make up part of the same elements:

Now, Picture to pe...

Painting sculptural detail

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Sunday, December 29, 2013, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey all!

I was given the idea for this one, but I wasn't sure if it was going to work. Experience should've eased my mind on this one already. GOD has never shown me anything to write here that didn't work.

HE showed me that you can literally paint in your normal influence and I was like: "Really?! No..." and tried it on Saturday night and sure enough! You can!

Here's a video of what it looks like in action:

Now, basically, you do exactly what you would, when you want to paint a text...

Rain can splash

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, September 23, 2013, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey all!

I was given this assignment and I did not know how to approach this. I had an idea of how I would've like to do it, but that didn't workout at all the way I wanted it to. What am I talking about? Check this out first and I'll tell you:


(Click image to see animation; opens to new tab in FireFox)

That's right!! You can make rain drops have a splash in Blender without having reactor particles. How? Dynamic paint!
Unfortunately, this is a feature that is a bit much for an easy QBT, so for th...

Remember two posts ago, the sea?

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, May 2, 2013, In : General 
Hey all!

I've worked on that special project over the last weekend, like intended, but I am still not completely satisfied with the final result, but that's only because this was an experiment. Here are a few frames as it progressed on a feature called, Dynamics Paint:

When I started, it was because GOD gave me an idea of how to do the foam, but I had never worked with this feature before and had to watch some tutorials to learn how it worked and some of the stuff that can be done and I particu...

A bit later, but still the same day

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, January 11, 2013, In : General 
Hey all!

Yesterday's post was early, and this one a bit later, haha. Thankfully still the same day though.

Today marked the completion of a tutorial and this is the final result:

Absolutely a joy to work on this and I think they even work like this as a group.

I hope you all like it as much as I do and that you're also looking forward to the book.

Thank YOU!!!!!

An example

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, January 10, 2013, In : wip 
Hey all!

This post is sort of linked to the first in terms of what you can do with procedural textures (quite a bit to say the least). This one, is about a touch of realism mixed with formalism (in the sense of adhering to recognizable forms, not expression through form). Here is what I mean in English: the picture depicts something real that does exist, so it is recognizable, yet it is not photo-realistic, but more stylistic.

In this case, the moon:


This, like the previous posts, is all contain...

Forgotten tip and something else

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, December 20, 2012, In : Tips 
Hey peoples!

Forgot to mention yesterday that you can use particle age to define transparency as well as emission and emission color. This what the rocket's flames part looks like:



(left is the birth and the right is the death of the particle).

Back to the something else I mentioned earlier. I wanted to know where there could be rigging and softbody physics and the two work well together, so I made the following:

These are three poles, with cloth stretched between them. A screen if you will, but ...

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...

Texture painting!

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, May 17, 2012, In : Tutorials 
This is one of Blender's coolest feature imo. You can literally paint over objects in 3DView. So cool. Not overtly original or even that fancy, just the knowing you can is cool!

For this part of the book (now becoming a set of books, due to my PC's inability to handle the large file), I used the monkey mesh that comes with Blender. Very simple low res texture, but it definitely shows that you can achieve good results with this technique.

Here's the final:


I really had to up the contrast and brig...

"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."
