NPR Shaders

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, April 15, 2019, In : News 
Hey all!

As you all know, Wasili and I started a thing in the Blender community at the end of 2017. He and I had spent a few months leading up to that December, building NPR shaders for Eevee - which was really rough in it's phases back then, hehe.

Anyway, since then, I've been working really hard off and on on these and since last month, we've had shaders that don't need to know it's light source, thanx to the incredible work put into the Shader to RGB node.

Today, I am super jazzed to announce...

Eevee and the coming render

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Saturday, March 25, 2017, In : News 
Hey all!

Yesterday, there was a very very interesting blog post shared, concerning Blender's upcoming new realtime engine called Eevee. While the posts states that this is the nickname, I kinda like the sound of it. Kinda suits the idea, because to me it sounds quick and speedy, and fast, and prompt, haha, you get the point.

I read through it and I am super happy with what they are planning, to say the least. I was hoping that they would have it already done and functioning by now. While the PB...

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.

Expressions

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, January 20, 2014, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey all!!

Yes, expressions, but not as in:
:-)
[^^,]
('c ',)
or even
q^_^p

No, we're talking, the expressions we use in programming! Oh yes, we're going to get to grips with some of it today!


An expression is something that acts as a filter. It can be explained as follows:

I want something to go through, only when it is in a certain range, for example:

I have a speedometer, but the steering should have no effect on movement below a certain speed. Now, I'm going to write something like this in the expre...

Toons, the conclusion_haha

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, November 22, 2013, In : Blender News 
Hey all!

Looks like we're 5 for 5 this week!! Amazing!! Huge blessing! Only 3 posts on tooning though.

Now, today is a really special day in regards to tooning, because, we have been working on this fantastic topic all week. With a lot of grace and teamwork, we got a spectacular result and learned quite a bit. So, let's recap.

When we started the week, I shared a very comic-like style with you all, focused on normal influence of the ramp in both Diffuse and Specular options. It looks fantastic, ...

Continuation: The toons

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, November 21, 2013, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey all!!

Today is a bit of a follow-up / QBT post based on yesterday's with the tooned monkeys. After yesterday's post, I worked on doing a final monkey (no textures, so the lines are limited) and this was the result:


(there are three lights in the scene, the monkey isn't crazy, haha)

I like the result a lot! I do rather which that around his ears the lines were more prominent and that anti-aliasing actually responded on my PC (I think it's something set on my graphics card that is preventing i...

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...

"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."
