Various drawtypes in Blender – quick test

January 9, 2009

There are various drawtypes for objects within Blender’s 3D viewport.   Besides that, there is the Subsurf modifier and the “Set Smooth” button which adds goroud shading.  Here is a simple screenshot illustrating my point:

Now I admit that this might not be worth reporting about, but it’s better to state that fact here than at the beginning of the post, warding readers off. 😀

Next on the Dancing Taco project: continue modeling the onion, then test the shading and texture with renders and tweaking.

I have started setting up some big goals for me this semester, (with someone’s excellent help,) and I really hope I accomplish them.  It will be extremely hard to conquer these goals, but it will be worth it.

Anyhow, I wish you the best in all your worthy endeavors!  God bless and goodnight!  I cherish your prayers.

Tomato for project “Dancing Taco”

January 5, 2009

Still working on the Dancing Taco project.  Hope I will finish it.  Here is the current render of the tomato:

However, previous versions were quite embarrassing:

Also, I am considering designing a T-shirt, which will be a neat experience.  We’ll see if that happens.  I found this neat PDF document that has some good guidelines regarding making a custom design.  I may use CafePress to print my design, but it may not have enough options for what I want to do.  We’ll see.

Cheers and God bless!  Hope you are enjoying the new year.  I better get to writing my JaNoWriMo novel. ;D

P.S. I have recently downloaded The Mancandy FAQ videos from blip.tv (through Miro,) so I may get into learning a ton more about rigging soon!
