Toon Shading - Cycles Caustics

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, March 30, 2017, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

Super glad to be able to get this video done. I have quite a story behind this one that I know you are gonna luv reading, so to prevent the temptation of watching first, the tutorial is at the bottom of the post.

Why cover caustics in Cycles when it was done in Blender Render already?
   A fairly obvious question to those who use Cycles, but not to everyone. Cycles is a newer engine in Blender and is built for realism. This makes things like toon-style NPR extremely difficult. Styles li...

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...

Cycles toon shading tips

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, November 22, 2016, In : Tips 
Hey all!

What a busy few days!! Goodness! I am so thankful that GOD gave me the efficiency to be able to produce so many videos so quickly!! :D

I received a comment on the Camp Fire tutorial from a Cycles user and that he had a fair idea on how to produce it in Cycles and I kinda of felt a little tug from GOD that I need to do a little bit more towards the Cycles side of thing and I couldn't shake the sense to do it and felt lead to start doing more towards toon shading in Cycles, so this is th...

Advanced Cycles Toon Shading

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, December 28, 2015, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

Last week, GOD had me on Cycles toon shading. I tell you, I was looking for a reason to use Cycles for the sake of faster renders. I have a huge project I want to complete and crunching the render numbers do not look promising, hahaha, that is, apart from a render farm, but that's not an option atm.

Anyway, I've found that despite all the turn offs and corners cut in Cycles, Blender Render, at least on my PC, is still faster on CPU than Cycles is on GPU and I can get a more complex res...

Toon shading soft shadows

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, December 16, 2015, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

Yes, you heard that right! It took a while, but GOD finally released me to make this tutorial and helped me make it and keep it short! HE is so good!!

Before getting into the technical aspects of it, this is the tutorial:



As you can imagine, this scene took a little while to stick together, but it's not about the scene - it's only there to illustrate a point. That point is:
You can have cell shading with soft shadows and even ambient occlusion, in Blender

In essence, this is one area wher...

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 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...

"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."
