I’ve been wrestling with Blender in an attempt to make a 3D version of a Vernimb Sentry this week. So far it is starting to look less like a deformed plum and more like a video game character. Once he is done I can then proceed with the exciting bit , the animation!! Oh and […]
Still a bit too clean to be accepted into the blobberhood but a few bits of dirt and grime should sort that out.. 🙂 Did I say that I really really like using Blender
I have discovered that the ‘Texture Paint‘ mode of Blender 2.5 is indeed rather awesome!!

But all is not lost, oh no!! You […]

‘Rot’ or ‘DRot’ what the ?? Ahh now I know! Rot is an absolute value overiding the object’s values and DRot is added to the current value! Ta da! Same applies to scale too. Stars are now converted to use Drot D?? where applicable!
I’ve been spending an awful lot of time learning all about IPO curves and key framing this week, which you could say is all fine and dandy. Ahhh but the real smile factor comes from looking back over the past few days and seeing how this thing is starting to shape up, how it […]
Animating what seems like a zillion and one stars is not a desirable way to pass the day so I was so pleased to discover the magic animation time offset setting in Blender. After animating one star I can now link to it from a duplicate, change the offset of the new one and wayhey […]
Development of the front end continues with the addition of my Rydek-12 illustration which is sitting inside Blender rather nicely now. Next step is to get the stars all key framed up and jiggling about doing their thing. Just discovered a cool Blender material button located in the Material panel called ‘Shadeless‘ which is great […]
