A few compositing tips - Toons

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, March 17, 2015, In : Tips 
Hey all!

As you all know, I am a huge fan of the cartoon looks out there and especially how the style is approached. After a while, I realized, by GOD's grace, that essentially, you can treat a finished animation as raw footage from a camera. That allows you to get a very distinct look. This is a very very basic scene, but it illustrates my point:


(Everything rendered and composited in one project)

Okay, now, this also works for video, especially if you have access to render layers, like in Blen...

Updated logo

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, July 12, 2012, In : General 
A few posts back my brother's logo was shown. He was given some inspiration to update its look quite a bit and he asked me to put it together from the old one and so here it is:



If you follow this site regularly, you could have seen that I posted this in the portfolio section of the site earlier today, next to the old one. Out of the two, I really do prefer this one and enjoyed making it. In keeping with the old design, perspective was still left out, but I had to split the contact info, becau...

New business cards!

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, June 4, 2012, In : General 
Hey peoples!!

Today I can show you my dad's new business cards. I did quite a few designs and here is the one most of us (family and friends), thought he should've chosen and the one he actually did.

Now, before I show you the cards, I want to add that there was no wrong or right choice in this case. I believe HE inspired every one of the 5 or 6 ideas and layouts I did, so all of them qualify. Most of us just liked the other one more, but since he doesn't like black, he went for the whit...

1st Car

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Saturday, June 2, 2012, In : General 
Yesterday I modeled a car, the first car I've ever done! It was quite fun, but it had a purpose: it was to go on my dad's business cards. He said for his cards he wanted an old-style car and since I don't know all the rules regarding car designs and what you're allowed to make and what not, I went original and did something from scratch with an old feel to it.

The only references I used were from experience (old cars I've seen) and a place that has an old luxury type car's silhouette as their ...

Cartooning in Blender

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, February 3, 2012, In : wip 
I've seen some works by people on the BlenderArtists.org threads and I was amazed at how much 3D models can look like cartoons if done right so I asked a friend there, bizla, if he knew anything about it. He did, thankfully and he told me where to find the settings for it and after fiddling with it a minute or so, I found out the following:

Your object's outline size is not gonna change if you increase the edge threshold. Increasing the threshold only makes it more sensitive to the mesh and if...

Jaw-dropping Blender animations!

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, January 3, 2012, In : General 
I'm a big fan of Andrew Price, the one HE places in stewardship of Blender Guru. On one of his posts (in the lists category), he added 27 animations he thought was of exceptional quality, showcasing what Blender can truly do. After watching Lighthouse, I just had to share the entire list. Yes, I don't support all of the videos, because I have certain standards as a Christian and there are things that are unacceptable to me, so use this list at your own discretion. I'm sure you'll be able to w...

"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."
Revelation 22:18-21
