Marius Oberholster Hey! I'm having an incredible learning experience, not only learning how Blender works (yes, still learning), but also about Open-Source and the incredible software available. Stick around!

Wood tutorial almost finished!

Hey peoples!!

Thankfully I had the opportunity to work on the book again this week and managed to finish writing it and finishing the cover as well. It still needs to be checked and maybe more info added, but it's one tutorial away from the Blender Render section being completed!!! As with the other tutorials having a similar cover, this is completely procedural textures (using nodes and directly applied).

So without further ado, here is the cover of the wood tutorial:

It took quite a bit of work to make this into what it is, but HE helped me so much and HIS confidence in me was amazing. I wanted to give up after the render looked like this:

HE just turned it into a challenge to get the look right (in the tutorial as well). The tutorial shows you how to make this and challenges you as the user to get it looking like the cover pic, but don't despair, because I do say what I did in to get it looking like the cover and the tutorial includes a high-res shot of the entire node-system for the final wood texture.

I will add more fine details of what I did ito texture settings to get it like the cover, but at least when you get the book and do the tutorial, take the challenge and see if you can get it looking like the cover (^^,).

The best part about the whole tutorial is that I wanted that grain shine I saw on the tables at a restaurant, but just didn't know how to do it, so I just ignored it and through HIS help, HE gave it anyway, LOL.

PS, for those of you who wonder who the "HE" is I always talk about, it's JESUS.

"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."
