I’ve given the blog a small facelift with some rotating banners and a gallery of my previous work, so you can access it in one place without having to trawl through blog posts.
Future projects: I’d like to explore some new territories – NURBs modeling (application of choice not yet decided) and volumetic rendering (probably with the new Blender 2.5). If anyone has some good pointers to suggest, let me know!
Taking a break from the Eaves Class 3D mesh, which I still feel needs a little more work, I thought I’d try my hand at making a triptych (A picture split into three pieces) of the Insignia Class starship for my home. I’ve been wanting to do this for some time and have had blank empty walls in the house ever since we moved in because of it.
I did the picture below a couple of weeks ago with this in mind, which was a combination of cloud effects and radial blur in photoshop:
I then split the above image into three, rescaling the ship so that it fit within the third section. Originally the ship spilled over into the second, but I thought this might look a little disjointed.
I then went over to canvas101 and ordered three prints on foam board. This was cheaper than printing them off on canvas, and as this was the first time I’d done this I was wary of them turning out badly. However, I was quite pleased with the results. Here they are on my wall:
Overall, I was quite pleased – I hope they don’t look too geeky for “normal” people visiting!
Next, I’m turning my thoughts to the end of our hallway. I’ve put together this rough concept image to give you (and my understanding wife) a taste for what I’m planning:
So, what do people think? Would you have something in your lounge like this?
