Yet another Sculptris/Blender work, I feel like I found the missing link in my workflow. Inspired by the cover of the Christopher Paolini book, "Brisingr".

Sculptris for Orca - Sculpted/Textures/Normal Maps
Blender for Environment/particles/Lighting/Shaders/Compositing etc
Gimp for some texture stuff (inverting normals maps etc)

Model made it into Durian

A couple of posts ago I showed a model I made in the modeling sprint for the Durian Open Movie. Well, some renders got posted up today from the movie and I'm happy to report that my model made it into the shaman hut scene of the movie! Yay!

You can see the stave tied to the wall of his hut on the left side of this image. You can see that they re-textured it to make it fit the theme of the scene. You can find the stave a few posts ago.

Radioactive Fluid

Just a quick test with fluids and the new Indirect lighting feature of Blender 2.5. It worked - I now have Radioactive Fluid!

Durian Modeling Sprint

So, the Durian Team, decided to hold a modeling sprint to gain some ground on their open movie project. I saw this as a neat opportunity to get my modeling into a real project so I went for it. I decided I could actually use one of my unfinished models as a base and get to work on finalizing it for the movie. The original concept is taken from the Pandaren Brewmaster Staff. Anyway, here it is. Small, simple, but complete! You can download the finished model here:

Anyway, you should go support the Durian Project and Blender development by pre-ordering the movie!

I just picked up a Pentax K-X DSLR because I got my last camera wet on my honeymoon. Oops. Now I have a much nicer camera! I played with it a bit this weeked, and decided to learn a bit about HDR and tonemapping. I made this image with a free program called qtpfsgui ( What an awful software name! But, the software did what I wanted it to do quite nicely. So, my first foray into HDR!
