Hey all!

Tutorial time again and today is kinda like a follow up on previous tutorials. For those of you who have thought about combining these and doing something new, this is gonna be a favorite!

I really like this tutorial and the bonus at the end, so check it out!

GOD is beyond words awesome!

For Anime - Garden Sprinkler

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, July 17, 2018, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!!

About a month ago, I uploaded the last tutorial which was also about a specific kind of sprinkler. This one, quite different in approach, is one of my absolute favorites (see the applied example in the tutorial).


GOD is so awesome!! (^^,)

Again, there was no reference for this online, since sprinklers are either a background element in anime or completely ignored as far as art is concerned. So, finding reference didn't happen. I looked, again, at how water is handled and how I've handl...

For anime - Course sprinkler

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, June 19, 2018, In : Tutorials 
Hey everyone!

Yes! It's tutorial time again and this time we get to cover something that is rarely seen in anime (at least from what I've watched)! Sprinklers! Not just any, but those gholf course type from the 80's and 90's mixed with what we have today. I am so grateful for the result!

Without further ado, check this out:

Because sprinklers are so rare or so much a background feature, there is little to no attention given to it. I looked on image searches and I jus...

Water Surface and Sun Rays tutorial - For Anime

   I had major sound quality issues over the past year or so. It has been a nightmare to get clean audio! I was frustrated to the max! Everytime though, GOD did come through and I got okay audio, but there has always been a significant amount of noise - at least to the point where I couldn't remove most of i...

2D to 3D conversion - Proposal

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, April 9, 2018, In : proposals 
Hey all!

I had the amazing priviledge of being able to write another proposal on Right-Click Select! Shockingly, I didn't actually blog about it, so that is what this is! Yay, hahaha!

So the basic idea is that you use the existing depth information (mist pass) to slice up the scene in as many slices as possible, causing something like this:



This means that you can now shift these slices and create what your eyes will see. I was extremely opposed to it, but it actually does make more sense to do ...

Epilogue

Hey all!

Don't you just love that title?! Sounds so epic! It was from a concentration standpoint. Goodness! hahaha.

With all the work said and done, we have:

Normal and Bump Mapping


Works with averaging what is there with the map itself. Gives a nicely balanced result. Bump maps are also converted to normal maps, but purely based on a flattened version that is connected to all three axes.

Ambient Light


For this feature, I simply added an emission shader and fed it, based on circumstances, either th...

Building a formula with nodes

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, January 3, 2018, In : News 
Hey all!

Building a formula with nodes is not as hard as it seams, but it can certainly be harder than you think as well.

You have to take quite a few things into account and these make it confusing:
 - Order of operations (will affect result)
 - Vector math functions available
 - Vector math output appropriacy (which output from vector math to use and when)
 - Vector transforms required
 - Vector separation and joinings required (available math functions dependent)
 - Math node functionality
 - Math ...

Blinn vs Phong

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, January 3, 2018, In : News 
Hey all!

Believe it or not, the Blinn and Phong models are not all that different. The goal with Blinn is to have specularity that is similar to Phong, but without it's sensitivity to proximity. This give many advantages within NPR, because it gives yet another thing you can manipulate - the size of the specularity. Source links will be at the end of this post.

Let's look at their formulas (don't worry, this doesn't get very technical) and the variables.

Happy new shaders

Hey all!

Happy new year!! May GOD bless you in all you lay your hands to for HIS Name's sake!!

I have to say that 2017 certainly came with a lot of unexpected things. I was hoping to finish Exodus by June (haha, hilarious! haha). I was certainly not planning on working on toon shaders for Eevee and honestly, by this time I was expecting a finished Eevee (can someone say super unrealistic, hahaha).

On the plus side - the animation for Exodus has progressed to where chapter 7 is visually complete....

Hey all!

GOD is so good!

 - Why another Defocus node
   While Blender already has a defocus node, there are problems with it that I just can't seem to get over. The primary problem is that it blurs the inside of a shape, but not the outside of it when it is out of focus. This is physically incorrect and makes the result hideous (s...

Quick Tip for VSE Transitions

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Saturday, April 15, 2017, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

Today I get to share with you guys a brand new Quick Tip video. In this one, we talk about transitions. Whether we do tutorials, animations or even tests, we will eventually come to the point where we would need to edit something, and that is where transitions come in. I believe the simpler they are, the better, because fancy effects are more for showing off, not really everyday use. This video, will show you a way that allows you to go a little over the top, while also allowing your ...

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?

Workflow - Node Groups

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, March 27, 2017, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

About a week ago, I got some comment on YouTube from a user called: CNR Games. He was very excited about the Node Groups I was using in the Compositing: Toon Shading with Soft Shadows tutorial. As many of you know, Node Groups are a way of putting together sets of nodes that just make your setup look cleaner and function better. You could say it is a form of logic visual programming.

Anyway, in my projects, I usually use a very specific set of nodes that I use in pretty much every rend...

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...

Oh yes! Finally got to do another tutorial - PRAISE GOD!! :D


Thank YOU LORD!

Another one in the sub-series on fire, I get to show you how to create a more modern style, and more animated style, of candle flame that you can use in your animations. Thankfully, we now have three in the series! I definitely need to make a subsection in the tutorial sections! haha.

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...

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Saturday, November 19, 2016, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

Here is the video!! :D


GOD is so beyond words!! :D

This is by no means a new technique to me. A long time, about two years ago, GOD gave me this method as I was assigned by HIM to figure it out. Since then, I got to use it in Esther 6, KJV, some verse images and currently in Exodus 7-12, KJV, which is still a wip.

I'm so thrilled to finally be able to share this wonderfully flexible technique with you guys as part of a series on anime style fire! I'm sure you are gonna luv every video HE...

Anne Frank in color

Hey all!

I'm sure most of you have heard of Anne Frank, even if you don't know who she is. Well, I'm definitely not the Anne Frank expert, but I was really touched by her family's story during the second world war, especially on how she kept a diary and only just didn't make it out of that horrible situation... I wanted to color her picture, but GOD didn't release me to do that, until this morning. Almost as soon as I was properly awake, I was commanded to do so, so here it is in color:

Motion Blur for Anime

Hey all!

Yey, tutorial time again!

Today's tutorial is about motion blur for anime. While it is not often seen, it is definitely used in various ways, from distortion drawing, to blurring to action lines, you find various techniques of highlighting or fleshing out certain movements. In this short video, JESUS enabled me to show you how to do a partial, or distorted, motion blur using the Vector Blur node in Blender's compositor. Check it out!

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.

Last week I looked at a brass material for a project I'm working on, and through the references I got, I could not tell the difference between brass and gold, except by context! I must not know them very well, but I was really surprised. I even ask some other people if they could and still they were as perplexed as I was.

What I did find out is that brass is sometimes a more pale yellow than gold is. Gold can often be an almost orange-y color. Not completely, but you get the point...

In some anime shows, there is a dust cloud that follows some explosions that looks a lot like this. I've wanted to do it for a while, but only got the release to give it a shot last night, after downloading Animation Nodes. I don't know 100% how Animation Nodes work, but I have to say, that it does take some getting used to and there is definitely a need for tutorials, hahaha. Having said that, you don't need animation nodes for this tutorial, though they do make things a lot easier!

Make Human to chibi WIP

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, March 3, 2016, In : wip 
Hey all!

Recently, I've had someone comment on the Make Human to anime tutorial, asking how far the geometry edits can be pushed in Blender. The answer is: "Surprisingly far". Of course, this means he wants to keep the rig intact and that does mean your edits are limited, a lot more so than if you were to model and rig it yourself - one of the advantages of Make Human is that most of the work is already done.

Now, for the tutorial, I got this result:

Now, this is also a very simplistic way of doing these sort of reflections. In fact, this is just when water flows in a straight line. If you have water that goes around bends, you need to adapt this and unwrap your river and toss out the empty and use the texture offset options. To show you how this wor...

This was a two part tutorial, but felt lead to watch the second part first and guess what it started with?! Yes, modelling mesh hair.

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.

GOD challenged me to try something today and I'm glad I listened. Basically, HE challenged me to use OpenEXR to export a clean animation to, to work on compositing afterward. Let me explain why.

OpenEXR is a format released by Industrial Light and Magic a while ago (source). It is by no means a format I would recommend you export to on a regular basis, simply because I don't believe that was why it was made. I believe, because it was made as a High Dynamic Range format, it was, at leas...

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, November 25, 2015, In : News 
Hey all!

There is a website out there that markets independent (aka, unsigned) Christian Artists of various trades in multi-media. It's called IndySpotlight. The lady who is the steward thereof, posted in Christian Animators (a facebook group) on Sunday about this website, but I basically glanced over it. Later that night, I felt GOD wanted me to share this video on that same group:



So I did, under internal protest, because I hate, for lack of better term, to shove my work down people's throats...

Genesis 1

Hey all!

Today I get to share with you something I was working on last year. I finished around December and can you believe it, it's almost December again, hahaha. Anyway, it is a short film on Genesis 1, the creation of everything, so I really hope and pray that it is a blessing to you!!

Check it out:


When GOD asked me to do this, I was not sure how it would come out, because I needed people characters and I was not experienced in modelling people... I of course knew about Make Human, and GOD g...

Background tests

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, October 30, 2015, In : wip 
Hey all!

Recently, I was prompted by GOD to look into making stronger backgrounds for toon objects and that meant higher sample rates and smooth shading - none of these are good for toon-shading, because they all produce smooth colors and areas, not hard ones, but through about an afternoon's scene building and a night's compositing, HE helped me get it done, so now you can get a result like this:


Now, this may not look like much, because it seems like a silly example, but you have to look beyo...

Weird outline

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, October 8, 2015, In : Tips 
Hey all!

This morning again, I came across a very familiar problem, that typically doesn't bother me, but today it really did bug me and it is an outline that forms when you use transparency in Blender Render. It looks like this:


(Simply scaling up doesn't help - the outline scales too and it's always the color of the sky)

The reason for this, I don't know, but I do know when it does it; when using Z-Transparency. Usually the fastest method and compatible with the mist feature, it does have it's...

Water

Hey all!!

The theme for the Make Human competition this month (October 2015) is Supernatural. Below is my entry and the post with it :D


Theme:
The entry for October is called "Water". I thought it would be a clever title, because people will definitely wonder "Water?! What did he do?" haha.
This one is of JESUS walking on the water, specifically from Matthew 14. That has to be one of the coolest supernatural things HE did, apart from going to the cross on purpose.

Covet

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, October 5, 2015, In : Tips 
Hey all!!

This was the coolest thing! I was busy brushing my teeth or something when GOD showed me what it means to covet. I haven't understood this term since I was little and it has always bugged me. For many reasons, but mostly because as I understood it, it meant that you're not allowed to want anything anybody else has for any reason - which was simply not practical when I thought about it as well. For example, let's say you don't have food and others do, you would be in sin if you wanted...

No, it was not failure on my part to load a file here, haha. No, this is much much worse [not really]. Blender sometimes has trouble loading audio and video files into the VSE. This is not always a reflections on format, as I was shown today. I believe GOD wanted me to share this solution immediately, so check it out!

Not because HE's lonely, but because HE loves you and paid a heavy price to enable you to go to Heaven, where HE is. See, we all have sinned in some way shape or form. That makes us guilty before GOD. If you have ever said that you hated someone, in GOD's standard, you have committed...

Hey all!!


This is quite a different post, because I've not been released by GOD to share this in such a public way yet, but in sharing this, it needs to be shared.

Most people who know me, know I used to follow a gay lifestyle. No one's preaching won me over to CHRIST, neither did anyone's condemning attitude (and trust me, this movie is spot on when it depicts the attitude towards Christians in general), but what won me over was HIS Love for me, not just like John 3:16, but real, individual, s...

Quick tip on video editing

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, July 22, 2015, In : Tips 
Hey all!

If you have ever done any video editing with Blender's Video Sequence Editor, or VSE, then you know the issues involved with frame rates! For those who don't know what a frame is:
A frame is a single image in a sequence of images that is flashed to a viewer at a certain rate that enables you to see movement as a video. These images all flash at the same pace and the most common today are 24 frames per second (fps), 30fps, 25fps and of course, 60fps.

Lipsyncing simplified

Hey all!

This is one I am very excited about writing! A while ago, I did a test in lipsyncing and I used a vector based method of doing it, not vector as in the PC does everything, but like hard vector, as in cell animation. That went fine, but it was not accurate  to the level that I really wanted it to be, but I saw an amazing experiment a while back in the Blender community on Google+. Someone there did lipsyncing by backing audio to F-curves. Not a new concept to me, but the idea to use it...

A few compositing tips - Toons

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:

Here is today's final:


As you can see, it looks nice and fuzzy, has a shallow water type feel to it, yet still quite deep as you can see the water surface and the beams stop before hitting the bottom.

Underwater compositing - Mist

Hey all!

Been a while since the last post, but this one is something I've learned a little bit on, so I hope this helps you tons! :D

Something that can easily be missed when it comes to underwater compositing is mist or a cloudiness. This comes from the way light bounces in the water, as well as other particles in the waters. Just think of a misty day. You can only see so far. Depending on the kind of water you are in, you will have varying decrees of clarity.

BUT! This is not a white mist. Ther...
