Trying out a light colored wood texture for my Nick Knack Box.
The texture isn’t perfect yet, I still have to move some faces around and eliminate / reduce some of the seams. For a first shot it doesn’t look all that bad.
Edit: I had to change the post title due to the amount of spam picking up on the old one.
Interior Architecture Scene – Tutorial by Johnathan Williamson
This is one of my favorite tutorials by Mr. Williamson. Earlier in the year CG Cookie conducted a survey asking us users how they could improve and what items we would like to learn more about. This tutorial covered every item I requested in one shot, not to mention I had a great time completing it.
I know the lighting and color is a bit washed out and I think I can improve the quality with a few adjustments to the settings. Not to mention I could not locate the texture bundled with the tutorial for the chair and tried creating my own and that (color) seems to be the culprit. Within the next few days I’ll locate a better/darker texture and post again.
This is from Andrew Price’s “The Nature Academy”, Week 2: Rocks
One of my first projects, a Knick Knack Box purchased at a local hobby store.
This object, sitting on top of the lid, was one of the first challenges I had and turned out very much like the reference photo
Thought I would post a picture from Andrew Price’s “The Nature Academy”, Week 1: Grass
This was my first attempt using the particle system and nodes. I was pleasantly surprised with the results.
First post and a milestone in my effort to give back to a community which has given so much to me this past year.
I first downloaded Blender in May of 2011 and was overwhelmed by the UI as I have found is common with new users. This quickly became a non issue as I purchased books and watched tutorials at CG Cookie and Blender Guru.
What I was not expecting was how great the user community is and their love of the program, their art and willingness to help old farts like me.
I will be using this site to document my continuing adventure in 3DCG, specifically with Blender via written and video tutorials as my proficiency increases.
Talk to you soon,
