Make Human community blog post

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, May 18, 2016, In : News 
Hey all!

In the last post, I got to share with you guys the finished Esther 6 video (wow, GOD is awesome!) and I hope you guys enjoyed it!

Now, of course, there are people reading this, that are curious about how to make these things in the first place. As GOD would have it, HE arranged for me to write a post on the official Make Human community website so you can get a very good scope of what goes into a short and specifically, characters from Make Human!

Check it out!

Esther 6 finished!!!

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, April 14, 2016, In : General 
Hey all!

A lot went into making this video and I am so thankful I was commanded to make it.

When GOD first told me HE wanted me to make this, I was really, strongly, resistant to the idea. If you've known GOD for some time, you will know that the message doesn't change. HE wanted me to do it and I submitted and oh am I glad I did! This was around the end of November of last year.

Production felt like it took forever, but all the things HE's taught me and allowed me to share with you guys, has be...

Susa time

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, April 7, 2016, In : WIP 
Hey all!!

That time of the week again and this week, I actually get to show you the city in motion. Last week I only got to show you some images (was still rendering at the time).

Before we get to the final video for the week, I would like to talk about what went into it.

- Sound effects
Crowd Sounds
   Now, this is nothing new, as you guys have all heard the tap on the table, Haman's feet and so on, but this specific week presented me with a challenge I initially felt overwhelmed by - Crowds!

Of c...

Hey all!

I gotta say, if GOD weren't as adamant about me getting to work this week, I would not have a post for you, hahaha. My mom hurt her wrist this week and I had to help extra around the house. Still do. Please pray for her healing and that it will be speedy! :D

Now, onto the post!

- Clouds
As many of you know, GOD was so gracious to let me make a cloud tutorial last week. What you'll see in today's post is the reason for it. Because of all my drama with the clouds, I didn't get much of the ...

A city in production

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, March 24, 2016, In : WIP 
Hey all!

I'm super excited to finally be getting to the next scene!! I've been working hard, obviously, to get it to where it is today, but this week, I have very little to show for it, in terms of a final result that's really nice!

So, I do get to share with you guys a few things from this week:

- Clouds
(not 100% what I wanted, but the closest yet, PRAISE GOD!)

Now, while this is not 100% the result I was hoping for, HE did command me to do a tutorial for it, which you can see down here. Include...

Night scene done and tutorial

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, March 17, 2016, In : WIP 
Hey all!

Yey, about another minute's animation done and edited!! Here is the whole thing so far - for this week's animation, skip to 01:06

GOD is awesome!!!!

Today, we get to talk about the subject of a new tutorial (Action lines, whoop whoop), as well as some travesties you can easily avoid (triple whoop whoop, haha).

- Night scene done:
Finally, the night scene section is finished. Has been months of hard work and GOD has been so awesome and I've learned a ton, but it is finally finished. Now, i...

Animation and sound effects

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, March 10, 2016, In : WIP 
Hey all!

Today's update takes a bit of a different route. I'm actually gonna let you watch everything I've been graced to put together so far - not fullHD, as that takes significantly longer and this took long enough to upload last night so I can actually share it, hahaha.

So, here is everything put together so far:

(Only 01:08, so it's a quick watch)

Now let's get into what went into this, hahaha.

Animation challenges and tips:
- Make sure your models are complete before rendering.
Sounds kinda duh...

Render render render

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, March 3, 2016, In : WIP 
Hey all!

Today's post is absolutely loaded with renders and a video or two and we talk about dialogue! haha.

- 7 Chamberlains
Let's kick it off where we ended last week - modeling! When I posted last time, with each post, I wondered how many chamberlains the king actually had attending him. And oh yes, there were 7. It's in the first chapter of Esther and I was like NOOOOOOOooooooooo.......... Haha. By this time, I had already modeled one and GOD insisted from the start of it, that I make a time...

The king himself

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, February 24, 2016, In : WIP 
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...

Windows engage!

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, February 11, 2016, In : WIP 
Hey all!

Haha, talk about a call to action in that title! haha.

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!

 - Textured building
On the last post, I got to show you the WIP of a building that, turns out, w...

Gardens galore

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, February 4, 2016, In : General 
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...

Render times and progress

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, January 28, 2016, In : General 
Hey all!

Super excited to be sharing with you guys the progress from the last week. Passed few days have not been the most productive, but ironically, the focus was in a different direction this week, but you'll see on that later.

 - Verse Image -
First, I felt lead to make use of the project and it's assets to create this week's verse image and I really liked the result. Because my hosting is not that big, I'm trying to limit the content I post, so I'm simply linking to the Cross Allegiance pa...

Update time

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, January 20, 2016, In : General 
Hey all!

As you've noticed, I've been a bit quiet. It's not because I haven't been working, but because GOD suggested that I update less. I was really frustrated because of the time it takes to write these so often - I like keeping you guys up to date, just not every 5mins, hahaha. If I do, the project takes significantly longer than it needs to, so, here is the first gapped update :)!

Okay, let's start with the coolest things GOD showed me that make this project even possible:

1) Particles:
As y...

Leg Fixed

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, January 6, 2016, In : WIP 
Hey all!

Yesterday, I shared some progress with you all about the horse and his legs, the front ones particularly and today, I get to share with you, what they look like fixed!

(There was no issue with the rig)

The problem came in with how the front legs were modelled. Usually, horses have front legs that have the individual parts distinguishable by really prominent joints, so you could say all the individual pieces have an almost hour-glass like shape (thick>thin>thick). After thinning out the ...

Horse WIP continues

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, January 5, 2016, In : WIP 
Good day everyone!

I have another post for you all today on the horse - yes, it's still not done and when you see the image, you will know why, hahaha.

As many of you know, horses have legs that move a certain way. If their legs don't move that way, they look funny. Through a lot of reference, GOD has helped me put this render together, after some serious rigging (and it wasn't even done yet!!):

(Still some adjustment that can be made to the weight painting to make it look better, but you would ...
