Teddy Bears


Teddy Bears

Result of a Blender tutorial follow along by CG Cookie.  It was an old tutorial but I just wanted to practice  some simple modelling.  Anyway I stashed the bears at different stages and textured them a few different ways. 

Went a little further and added fur following a tutorial by tutor4u   Football created following a tutorial by Magevo studio.

I am so far behind on this blog I missed a whole season.  Have been busy trying to keep up with work I have struggled to do any personal work.  Not a healthy thing for progres I am sure.  It will hopefully be busy until the end of year then I will have a chance to stop and reflect.

Managed to squeeze a few hours to do a self prortrait for November 1st.  It was a really big deal on the now defunct  It keeps going on Facebook but it is not the same.  Anyway it is good to put down a marker - another year.

I have tried to keep posting regularly here since 2011.  I have really struggled the past few weeks.  I have been working on a lot of client work and its all NDA.  My time for personal work has dwindled to almost zero.  I did manage to get through some tutorials on fluids in Blender.  This one by Olav3D was really useful.   This was my attempt. 

 A week or two later I got to play around with it and made a fountain and tried some different lighting.

mock up


Here are a couple of recent images I worked on.  Mostly line work and a simple render.  The advantage is that they can be created in a short amount of time and be revised quickly.  Useful for small commission work. The settlement I used 3d to work out placing and camera.   Also used a  blender file using 3d to create a 2d map.

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.
