First project

Ello there.

Wrapping up my second week of studying, we're finishing up our first render, learnt about different types of modelling and materials and the rest. It's a simple scene, indoors with vases and Chairs and all that fancy stuff, having great fun, and here is what it looks like so far

Also in good news, my tablet arrives tomorrow so I can get back to digital painting, horah!

Soul-crushing Trees

Hey there

Finishing up my studies of tutorials now, course commences on Monday. Just ranting to secure my own thoughts, feel free to look at the pretty picture and ignore the rant.

Course starts on monday. Filled with a sense of apprehension, what if like, everyone there is uberly talented, what do I do? I mean i'm at wits end as it is, Working as a waiter during week nights, fighting crime and making sure that food arrives at the table on time, working at concerts on the weekends as security, which allows me time to drive home, grab a cup of coffee then leave for college. On top of that trying to be a good boyfriend and improve my abilities in art.

Being an adult sucks.

Right, now the touching, soul-crushingly depressing life story is over:

What I learnt in this tut was

•Save materials to a material library
•Save objects in mr Proxy file format
•Create mr Proxies and associate them with imported proxy files
•Add materials to mr Proxies
•Use Object Paint to instance and distribute mr Proxies in a scene

Quite fun, rendering time is a force to be reckoned with, but apparently it's to save time, still took quite a while (left to go grocey shopping so I can't offer a definite time)

See ya around, feel free to leave a comment, anyone can comment, no need for an account.
