Vintage tutorials and palm update

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Saturday, December 12, 2015, In : News 
Hey all!

Today's post is a bit nostalgic with something a little new as well! :D
Quite a while back (like start and middle 2014), I made two tutorials on using unwrapping to your advantage when texturing. Both of those, GOD did not permit me to upload to YouTube back then, but today I felt lead to upload both of them and here they are:





And the new part of today's post is an update on the palm tree I posted on the 9th:


(Tropical storms are regular around these trees, that's why it doesn't seem pha...

MercyMe - Shake

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, December 9, 2013, In : General 
Hey all!

I'm currently working on a new tutorial that I really hope will surprise a lot of you like it did me, but while I'm working on it, I can't post any new content as there really is nothing to be posted that looks really good, haha. In addition, I am considering adding a shortcut for all the QBT's so far under the Blender Tutorials page, just like for the Blender Game Engine Tutorials page.

I do have something absolutely fantastic to share and that is one of MercyMe's new songs called Sha...

New profile pic! A good face lift!

Hey again!

Wow, two posts in one day! Like that a lot! Anyway, on the Panther Dynamics FB page, I say I aim to design right the first time, yet for some reason, I left my profile picture in a dismal state. Unacceptable! If this service is to glorify GOD, it has to be done right and so, here is the new profile picture:



It's high time the standard gets a bit of lift on the overall presentation. If the standard is low, the income will be low and that is just not okay, lol.

Hope you all have a fanta...

Finally back to doing something, lol

Hey everyone!

I am still editing on the book, but this last week has been garden work like never before and today I took some time off to just do something fun (was so tired I fell asleep whenever I sat down, lol).

Anyway, I am working on something with the ocean modifier (not specifically for the ocean modifier, but it may certainly apply), but first I had to get a material in Cycles that I would be happy with and this was the result:



While it may be far too dark in this scene, it is really not...

Entry finished! (^^,)

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, April 17, 2013, In : General 
Hey all!

I am very glad to report my Blender Guru competition entry is in and I am extra nervous about this one; animation.

I went more for a non-typical animation, but still counts and I really hope you all will like it a lot. I would like to post it when the competition has closed (29 April 2013, 23:59 GMT) and the winner has been announced (two days on). So please be patient until then.

On the upside, after around 4 days of rendering, it means I can get back to editing the book (oh yeah!). I ...

Been busy, but here's an update

Hey all!

It's been a while since my last post, but I am glad to reveal an update on the next tutorial. Hope you all like it!!:


This is not a very complicated scene, but it is one that has enough detail imo to show what the trees will look like in a scene.

There is no tree focal point. In fact, before adding another in the middle, the sky was the focal point; not good. Now, it begs the viewer to look for a spot. Sort of like you would when going to a park. Hopefully that's the effect here, lol.

An...

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."
