Karloff-ish.

By in digital

Listening to this very good podcast about Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi, I drew my idea of Boris Karloff on my computer. I should really use references, so this guy is just Karloff-like. (darn it! Lots of pictures on the podcast site!)

You know, one of my Great-Aunts was married to Karloff for a while, but he had a few wives, as movie stars tend to do, and I’m not sure where she shows up in the list.

I like the background here, which looks very Impressionist, like a Monet.

Aloysuis and his Room

By in Blender 3D

Here’s the final version of my “Green Monster” diorama. I find this quite charming.

A lot of work went into getting the graphics and the lighting right. While I’m still a beginner in Blender 3D, I learned a lot here.

“Aloysuis” is pronounced “Allo-wishus” if anyone doesn’t know.

Monster 3

By in Blender 3D

I placed a rusty steam pipe into my Blender monster scene, but didn’t have the energy to add a spiffy valve to it, or a lot of joints with bolts on them. Still, I’m pleased with my mastery of the “spin” tool. One more thing learned! #b3d

3D Volkswagen

By in Blender 3D

Well, I made my 3D Volkswagen. Not perfect, and still a lot I can do, but I think it’s better practice to move on to other projects rather than fiddle with this one indefinitely. However, that’s what computers invite you to do! #b3d

Safety Pins

By in Blender 3D

They’re jewelry for a character I’m building. I was worried they would take a long time, but they didn’t, and that’s pleasing.

The character is taking longer than I would like, but I feel I am learning things. #b3d

3D Bathroom

By in Blender 3D, digital

I’m terribly proud of this bathroom corner, but it needs brighter lighting. The towel was a sophisticated simulation, which I need to practice. The tissue paper was a tour de force, but the box needs a logo of some sort. The program only crashed on me once, so I’ve learned to save more often. Next challenge is to make a roll of toilet paper. #b3d
