Archive for Finished projects
Over the weekend I had a little time and suddenly decided to patch up and embellish a simple model I had made some time ago to illustrate a post on the solidify modifier. I had it in the gallery and it was a bit of an eyesore, hope it looks better now.
It is not a real design so don’t look too far into its architecture (or I’d rather say… please don’t!), I didn’t bother much with the measurements… it just grew there…
I have happily finished my current project so I have some time now to finish a nice new post for the “how to” section. I’m even looking up html syntax to make nice links inside the post! I’m showing just a bit of wireframe so you know it was a “dense” week 🙂 Just needed to say, Blender and BI didn’t let me down. Can’t wait to get on to the new 2.62 release this week!
There were a lot of multiplying modules in this one, so I used a lot of arrays and instances (alt+D). It wasn’t so bad but I kept feeling there should be a better way for doing this. The arrays are good but too rigid, the repetitions had voids here and there so I had to stop the array and make a new one. I want now to experiment with dupliverts, but after my first tests today.. at first I liked them and then I realised maybe I wasn’t getting much more from it than from just instancing. I’ll have to test some more, should try to make a personal project around this. I also remember seeing a post some time ago about an improved array modifier but can’t find it right now…
This is what finally happened to the dusk image, I tried to address part of the things pointed out in your comments, like I added an area light with a weird color trying to fake the light reflected from the water, and moved camera and trees a bit to give more depth to the image by having something in the foreground. Thank you very much for the input! I don’t have much time unfortunately so I stopped trying to make this perfect (especially as the scene is very slow now), maybe will try some other light conditions and angles when I get to it.
Today I needed to have one nice finished Cycles scene as a test for something my husband is working on (later I will write about this too) so I dropped everything else and finished my pet Cycles interior scene.
..and here it is! Merry Christmas! 🙂
..Are they helping with decorating the tree or are they helping themselves to some Christmas candy?…
I used Cycles for this, here are some production details:
