The king himself

Hey all!

I know usually I post on a Thursday, but I was super excited about the progress, so I just had to share it today!! :D

Now, the title is a surprise - yes, the king is finally modeled! Yey!!! :D
Can someone say progress? Oh yes!

 - The king has been modeled
Here is what he looks like in Make Human:

This is what he looks like in Blender after quite a few tweaks:

Tweaks here involved applying the Make Human to anime tutorial stuff, as well as a few new tips GOD showed me that I want to make tut...

The king's room

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, February 18, 2016, In : WIP 
Hey all!

Time for the weekly update!

This week, the focus has been on the king's room. For me, this is incredibly difficult, because I find no info on traditional Persian interiors. I do know that they did do a lot of things the same way as the Indians did - lots of arches, pillows, low to the floor furniture, etc., but honestly, I don't know to what extent this is the case, so I have to follow peace and ironically, it has made for quite a modern appearance.

Additionally, since the first time we...

This week's update is not as huge as last week's, because GOD put me on a few other things for half of the week (and quite frankly I was super tired), but last night I got some more things done and I get to share with you all some of the other things and they will actually give you a little something to try out! :D

So, first things first!

For Anime Tutorial series 1 - Water Reflections

Gardens galore

Hey all!

Today's progress update is rife with huge updates and a few more speed up tips and some general tips as well! :D

To start off, I would like to talk about the additional speed up tips GOD gave me through this week. I cannot even begin to express my gratitude!! I definitely think that a single frame would have taken 12 to 20 minutes to complete, had HE not teach me all these tricks!!

 - ZTransparency
Yesterday, GOD had me do a post on how to fix the edge problem with ZTransparency. I'm not...
