Short animation Bac#4

0 comments
Just a short animation i did a while ago for the Blender Animation Contest #4. The idea of the whole animation was to bring the character frome the point A to the point B in less than a minuute in ANY way you wanted, it was the first real animation I made in my life. It has LOTS of fails, but I think it overall doesn't look so bad.
The character rig was provided for the contest by Kioopa, a Blender artists forum user.
Show me the video!

However with more and more updates to blenders hair tools, it ‘s getting easier (and even fun!) to create characters and creatures with hair. This tutorial/guide covers working with hair particles i n blender, including particle systems, combing/cutting/styling hair, and using the child particle settings.

Sintel 4k : The Durian project releases the 4k version

2 comments

As if the HD had not been spectacular enough, the Durian team has just released a 4k version of Sintel. So, you may ask yourself “What is so impressive about that?”. The thing is that 4k means a resolution of 4096 x 1744 pixels. Yes; you read well, over 4000 pixels wide. Now that’s impressive. More resolution implies also , more details and an outstanding quality of image.
