Another packed week but I have a result of a turorial I followed  video.  This was created by Polygon Runway.  I found their work on Dribble and thought it would be a good challenge to follow along.  From this I did learn  how to use the single vert to make the cables and pipes.  I changed out some of the details as I was around in the 80s. Video is a close up on some details.

Blender Bedroom

Back to 3D following a tutorial by Jayanam.  on YouTube.   I followed the tutorial then played around with renders a little. I also used the SVG export option to see the effects.

Animal paintings

Switching back to some traditional watercolour for the most part.  These were done as practice pieces just to get more comfortable with the medium.  Apologies for the late post  but I have been busy with client work - not a bad complaint.  I think I need heavier paper to do a looser style.

Anvil Modeling


I finally managed to finish the epic tutorial series by Blender Guru.  I started it at the start of August - did the basic modeling and then had to drop it to do other work and then got back to it in September.  It was well worth doing as I had not done any UV unwrapping or baking and I feel I got a good grounding in that. So if you are starting out it is a good project to do.   

On a side note I could have easily not returned to this series to complete it.  I know there is a high attrition rate on open source learning I was interested in the fall off in numbers.  Using views you can get a sense of how challenging it is to keep going through these kinds of series.  The final videos had one tenth of the views of those at the start.
