30 minutes is all I had…
Taking yesterday’s technique to do something a bit easier to accomplish in a short time. About an hour.
I really want to sculpt on this and take it further. It’s a combination of the skin modifier, subdivision surfaces, and the fluid simulator. Took about an hour and a half.
Not counting the hour and a half I spent failing with the soft body simulator (and ultimately giving up on it), this took about 30 minutes.
Two-thirds of the way through. This one took about an hour.
A little late on this one, so I had to do a quickie. Less than 10 minutes.
A pretty short [and kind of late] episode this week as my commute has been a bit different. I was traveling for work to a much different kind of conference than the one I talked about in last episode… though there were still a very high population of artists and designers at this one, so that was refreshing. In any case, I talk in this episode about building, developing, and maintaining creativity by doing something (anything) creative each and every day. And, at the end of the episode, I issue a challenge out to you! Let’s see how many of you take me up on it.
Below are a few of the things I cover in the show:
- Inkcape 0.91’s About Screen contest – Deadline is 1 October 2014. Get to work!
- Blendermada – A pretty cool online materials library for Blender, accessible with an add-on
- Urecord – An open source audio recording app for Android (more on this in a bit)
- Axiom Beta’s crowdfunding launch – A crowdfunding effort on Indiegogo for a super-cool open source modular cinema camera
- 30 day modeling challenge on BlenderArtists.org – The 30 day modeling challenge that thusfar has formed the bulk of my content on this site’s blog
Incidentally, I recorded this podcast using Urecord (as mentioned above). Generally speaking, I’m quite pleased with it. The only drawbacks that I’ve seen with it is that the highest sample rate it can record at is 44.1 kHz and there’s no way to adjust the input gain on the mic. The former isn’t a huge deal (it’s still CD quality, after all), but the latter has me a bit concerned. It worked pretty well for picking up my voice in an empty hotel room, but I’m worried that if I use it in my car while driving, it’s not going to fully fit the bill. Maybe it will, though. We’ll see on the next episode.
It’s a smile. It’s not creepy. I don’t know what you’re talking about. 30 minutes.
A quick little thing about deadlines… 15 minutes.
Simple paperclip model with some added fun. 20 minutes.
