Tiki Island

A new scene made in Blender, with lots of post-work in Photoshop to get the rain, splashes and motion blur.

Kawaii Animation

Time for another (very) short youtube-inspired test. This time I’m trying to emulate Kyary’s style from the Ponpon video.

More sculpting practice

Working on my sculpting skills. I’ve started to be a little more conscious about polycount now, since the dragon head below hit 1.7 million faces. I managed to keep the other two at about 200,000.

Render+ 2.0

Hey, it’s that time of the month (or week): a new version of Render+ is out. What’s new you ask? This much:

Cyborg Sculpt

I’ve started to play with sculpting in Blender, it’s a lot of fun and really addictive. I don’t have the specs to go for multi-million polys (yet), but looks like you can get good results with a 500,000-700,000 polys too. Here’s my first attempt.

Master Sword

Childhood memories, modern looks… Hi guys, I’ve working on low-poly tribute to  Zelda:A Link To The Past. I’m sure remembers finding the master sword in the forest, right?

Distorted Glow Tutorial

This is one of those effects you won’t be using very often (if ever), but it’s useful to learn more about the compositor and open to new ideas. This tutorial is based on 2.68 and uses Cycles (but can also work with BI).
