That's not snow lol

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, August 23, 2013, In : The Gospel 
Hey all!

Today I believe GOD wants me to share a render and creative error on my part. I didn't ask for GOD's input on this and this is what happens when we don't, hahaha!

Back-story. As you all know, I am working on matching images for the sonnets from the 4 seasons. This one, is for the first sonnet of Winter. While quite a challenge to make a scene like this work, I thoroughly felt the challenge and wanted to through a tantrum. I wanted to add snow to the scene in the form of halo's. I belie...

C'est un mushroom!

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, July 10, 2013, In : Tips 
Hey all!

Just practicing my French a bit, lol. Here is a mushroom a friend challenged to me to make! It was such a difficult thing to do and I smugly thought: "this will be easy", lol. Famous last words I guess, lol. The Word also says that pride comes before a fall, so this one put me back in my proper place really quick. Thank YOU JESUS!

Here is the reference image I used.

Anywho, here is the final:


What made this image very difficult came down to a few things:
 - Little bits on the top
 - Colora...

Polar bear

Hey all!

Been working on some things and so haven't been posting as much as usual. But I know you'll luv this one!

A few weeks ago, I received the idea to make a polar bear, sitting on ice, with his paw in the water, but with a very painterly look. That, I believe, was just to show the image had to be simple.

Anyway, having the idea, I started off for MorgueFile to go get reference and there were some stunning shots!! Remember to always check the licenses of the photo's. Very important.

So I want...

Just something fun

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, January 3, 2013, In : General 
Hey all!

Was a bit under the weather today, so I took the day to just make something random and here it is:



I played around with the remesh modifier. One of it's features is the ability to make a mesh pixelated (or block) in appearance. Everything in the scene has been made that way, except the lighting, because this is Blender Render, not Cycles. The composition originally left a bit to be desired, so I quickly changed it. This is how it was:



I think this project would make a cool wallpaper, bu...

Can Blender do a glitter material? You know it can!

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, February 29, 2012, In : Just for fun 
Today I spent most of the morning's work time on finding a way to replicate a glitter containing plastic (thought it would be cool if Blender could do that) and in the last tutorial, Procedural Textures - An Introduction, I showed an intro as to a possible method, but I was yet to fully give it a try and today I did and it looks fantastic.

You can see how it responds here. I rendered only a low res version that you can watch here, but this was just for fun, not work:
Glitter Material

Enjoy!

Thank...

"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."
