Histogram in HTML5 canvasI made it happen
I really like how Blender sculpturing works
I made this Anatomically Impossible Devilish Bird-feeder Slash (/) Flower-Pot From Hell statue without any planning in Blender. I just improvised all of it.
I used multires modifier on the default cube and this happened by sculpturing in 1 hour + 10 min of material setup / texturing + 1 hour of rendering in Cycles with 500 samples.
I think I should play more with sculpturing, because this one surprised me how good it turned out. I know this is far from the level called "professional" this is just a doodle compared to what real artist capable of, but I feel like I am getting better in this. And that is a good feeling.
Oh and I am very happy with this material.
I have new lens. A little testI bought attachment lens called 58mm 0.45x Wide Angle Macro Lens mainly for the macro feature.
What is this?
These kind of lens are cheap and not that good as they trying to sell them, but they are decent enough to use them (for example the "Super Wide" written on it is a lie "Wider than before" is valid). They are attached to the front of the original lens and that is all. As you can see it can be separated in two. When the two lens work together they are wide angle, when the bottom lens attached only they are macro lens.
I made test images. In both cases I photographed the same image from tripod without the attachment lens and with them too.
super duper wide angle bullshit
I like when I see my skills getting betterFor one that is why I never delete anything from my dA gallery. But now I done something else. I redo one of my 3D models with the knowledge I got in one year.
When I created this box it was really hard for me. Back then I just learned about texturing, I used Blender Internal for rendering and I was happy with the result. It looked kinda like in the cartoon. I even made an animation:
But now I revisited this model, because it come in my mind how easy it is to do. The thing I fought hours learning how to texture or even model it.... now it was nothing. I was lazy though, I didn't redraw the texture. But I remashed the model, I separated its top. I added wooden normal and spec maps under the original texture. I got rid of all those outlines and used Cycles and awesome (basic ) materials too.
It is not finished though and I will not finish it. I do not like to repeat myself. But it is really a good experience for me to see how better my skills now.
PlansI have some. Plans I mean. Photography plans those are.
one of those has a dog in it, will be interesting
others are still the old ones, pointless to say
also I have no 3D plans. Those just happen these days. most of it are unfinished fuckups, do not show it here.
yeah this journal just here to finish off the last one that is fun, but irrelevant this time.
and look at this skin! so retro.
Once I had an ideaAnd medium.com is sooo beautiful and easy to use I had to try it writing out my idea:
Images about everything
Seriously they do not pay me to say such thing. I jsut love how this site works. The simple design, the text editor. It is beautiful and inspiring. It inspired me to write out this stuff from my system. And this is how a good design influence people.
Practicing with Fallout fanart in Blender 2.70a
Well this image will never be finished but it was perfect to try out volumetrics in Blender Cycles. The Nuka-Cola Quantum is an interesting material with mixed emission and glass + volume absorption, the normal Nuka-Cola has simple glass material with absorption. The whole scene has volume scattering too. It shows, but without it it looks less realistic. So I am happy I was capable of testing out this.
Textures I used:
3D scanning with Autodesk's 123D Catch is funYesterday I had a good opportunity to 3D scan MichiGasoline. It is not perfect, but very interesting.
How it works? I made a lot of photos walking around her like this:
Then I upload these images to Autodesk and it produces a 3D model from the images. In this case it was a whole street.
Next step was downloading the .obj file. I imported it in Blender, cut everything that is not her, and I have a 3D scanned MichiGasoline
Naturally with more photos, more precise images and better references (for example bright points on the ground) this could be much more better. Even 3D printable. When you download the .obj file you get a uv unwrapped and textured model that you can edit as you wish.
How to get better at artPeople keep asking me what programs i use, and what program is the best for drawing and what brushes i used for this artwork or that. Those are legitimate questions, sure, but not entirely accurate. There are differences between programs and brushes, but in the end, they are all tools. They are tools artists use to put their imagination onto a canvas. Just like a traditional artist can use 10 different brushes to paint an artwork, or just one single brush, digital art is the same in that regard. There is no one brush that can achieve an effect that none other can. Sure it's a little more difficult if you're using one brush type to draw everything, but not impossible. Artists might have hundreds of brushes in Photoshop but in truth, we use 2-5 brushes the most and those hundreds only in special cases. I personally use a hard brush and a soft brush for 90% of things, what i do change is the opacity and turn the pressure on and off, change the size etc.

PureThe thing about getting known is that people say funny things to you. Most of it is bullshit. Some of it is true, and some of it is downward inconsiderate. Some of it does make me think, though.
One of those things said to me, a while ago, was that I wasn't so much of an artist.
That, despite the fact that I was decently known on the internet nowadays, I didn't make actual great art.
(The actual comment phrased it somewhere along the lines of "famous as hell, but still draws like a college art student")
And you know what I thought? This guy actually did have a solid point. The way he worded it down was just... not so clever.
Throughout my life I've seen people with great skills in everything. I've learned soon enough that people typically see themselves as either a left-brain or a right-brain thinker, meaning so much that their either go with logic or intuition, and are often either good with numbers or social skills/art (that come with that). While many of these tests whe

Troll pollution?What's up with all the troll accounts of really bad taste lately?
I wish dA would simply ban these people, when they are polluting this site on purpose and act like total jerks screaming for attention? (I mean, it's not even funny at all.) There are these people I have to keep reporting, since they upload commissioned works and my clients are really unhappy about it. Once it gets taken down, I have to report it AGAIN AND AGAIN since it get reposted again!? I have MUCH better things to do than deal with kids like this.
And they accuse the real artists to steal from them when the trust is so obvious? What kind of trolling is that, are they even trying?
And the death threat jokes...
This have gone way too far beyond stupidity x__x
I'm not sure if people realise they can get in LEGIT trouble for doing things like this? (but they are probably too young and ignorant to care) are they really that desperate and have nothing better and productive to do? That's really... sad.
Now it's just extre
Art and overthinkingDear, deviantart fellow artists
There are times when everything goes well, but sometimes It's so easy to let those thoughts (whether caused by fear, life, problems etc.) to overcome your wilingness to do anything. So we let ourselves to get distracted, even though that's not what we really want to do. It's just easier. But we should not let overthinking to stand in our way.
People do tend to overthink all the time. Worrying about unimportant things, while doing nothing about solving actual problems. If there is anything that you think constantly about, that needs to be done - don't put it away till the later. It will only get worse. So often do we regret our decisions in the past, yet we are the only ones who can impact our future.
People also crave for disctractions. That's why probably social media sites are so popular these days. Watching youtube videos all day - It's inspiring to see how other people get success

The most amazing thing happened today!This morning, a guy rand my doorbell and i thought that was a little weird because i wasn't expecting anyone. He said he has a delivery for me with 2 tubes from deviantART. I was really surprised because i didn't remember giving my address (it was such a long time ago that i did probably) or didn't remember ordering anything and only until i opened them did i realize they were print gifts from my wishlist! But i have no idea who sent them :icontearyguyplz: They were both prints of this artwork
and i am not sure if there were too separate people who sent them (they appear to have been sent at different times) or one person. BUT WHOEVER YOU ARE THANK YOU SO MUCH YOU WONDERFUL PERSON!
The prints are amazing looking! Kudos to deviantART because the quality of the print is astonishing the prints are on material not paper and that not only makes them more durable but it also has a very neat oil painting feel to it.
This just made my week! I will
2 REQUESTS OPEN, everyone has a chancePS: NOT FIRST COME FIRST SERVE, I WILL CHOOSE TWO DEVIANTS TO GET A DRAWING LATER! xD
I made two sketches and thought that it would be fun if people could request their character to be drawn out of them, like a free YCH (Your-Character-Here).
Will choose two characters I'd like to draw out of the comments. You don't have to be a close friend or anything, EVERYONE has a chance! :3
1. Favorite this journal.
2. Be a watcher (If you don't watch me, do so now! I want to thank someone who supports me! ;D).
3. Comment with a proper reference sheet of a canine character.
You can comment with as many reference sheets as you want, but only one character can be chosen, and you can only get 1 request. The drawings will be shaded, but have no background. Please be kind and don't force, nag or push me, I'm a person who get extremely easily stressed, and if you bother me, I'll NEVER draw for you.
3D Camera TrackingToday I learned this. Camera tracking. Basically it is a very simple thing. I select points on the first frame of the video, Blender tries to track those points. After that it sets up a 3D environment for the video. Aaaand it is really good in tracking.
This is my first attempt:
As you can see I used my Sburb logo for this little test. The reason for that it is much better than the Blender monkey head. The low poly count helps me to render it fast. I am really happy with this, one of my best "first attempts".
Keep in Touch!
