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!

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, August 1, 2013, In : General 
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

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, April 26, 2013, In : General 
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

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, November 26, 2012, In : wip 
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...

Update

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, November 15, 2012, In : General 
Hey all!

So far, the book is around 230 pages! Fantastic!! I am super excited about it and I really hope to finish it as soon as possible. Due to unforeseen circumstances that will still come (means I can't predict the future, lol), I can't give a release date, but I can continue to show you the progress as I work.

Looking forward to the other tutorials to be added to the book and tonight (it's just turned 22:44 as I am writing this post), I would like to just leave you with a very well done wa...

An update on the book

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, October 15, 2012, In : General 
Hey all!

Working hard to get it finished as soon as possible! The next section will be tutorials and after that a few more things and it should be ready for release! So looking forward to having it completed and I have really learned a huge amount in the writing of it!

Today was a continuation of the displacement feature for Cycles. After getting this result, it was very important to find out how to fix it:

(the texture is not supposed to be a lot of thin blu stripes over a square sun's surface,...

Current tutorial image change

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, July 23, 2012, In : General 
Hey all!

I've been thinking about the image I wanted to use for the cover of the 3D tutorial and although the current one looks cool, it is still very much like looking into a bumpy cube = no proper depth for different positions.

So the plan is to not only finish the tutorial today, but to also fix the cover image and hopefully get it posted tomorrow!

If it works (and I pray it does, because it really seems like the HOLY SPIRIT's leading), the new cover will be a very cool surprise. If you see t...

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."
