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 […]

3D is challenging stuff. I’ve learned a little about putting in backgrounds. Lighting is a whole different thing. Also, this is the first car I made. Others are less blocky. But it reminds me of the car from the Stephen King novel. #b3d

Wonders of Technology

By in Blender 3D, heads

Spent most of the day building this elaborate portrait head in Blender 3D. You know, people are the hardest things to do in 3D. But I didn’t have time to paint him, so I made him into a Roman Bust. Then I put that silly hat on him. I’m very happy, because this sort of […]

Happy Valentine’s Day

By in Blender 3D, color

This is a strange thing with hearts in it, that I made in 3D. So there you go!

Tom Swift

By in Blender 3D, digital

I did this for a Facebook “challenge,” meaning there was a call for illustrations on the subject of “Tom Swift and his [adjective] [adjective] [noun]. I used it as a chance to practice my 3D spaceships and various digital chops. I could rant a little about the non-user friendliness of the program Blender, but I’m […]

Bronze Age Hoard

By in Blender 3D, digital

It’s either that, or a child’s playset. At any rate, I’m childishly thrilled that I can create realistic-looking objects out of my head using the Blender 3D software. The carpet was kind of an accident. #b3d

3D Tabby

By in Blender 3D, cats

3D tabbers and mouse. I have to work on whiskers, I’m afraid, Next comes hair, which will be spooky. This is the rug I have in my hallway.

Apologies to good cats everywhere. I was mainly trying to get the desert floor to look right, with the help of something called a “bump map.”

3D Space Rendezvous

By in Blender 3D

I’ve learned a bit about “UV unwrapping,” which is the art of making shapes one can decorate with graphics, and “paste” around your 3D model. Next today is to learn about “bump mapping,” which will let me put space-shippy details on the models. Maybe also “particle fields,” which will let me create stars, perhaps a […]

Random 3D Stuff

By in Blender 3D, digital

Some silliness I made in Blender. Still a long ways to go with this program, but I’m pleased with what I can do so far. Think I’ll put in a chair next, or a spoon to stir the coffee with. The trumpet is there because I took a tutorial on how to make a trumpet. […]
