Tiny bit of a lull in the productivity here. I have spent HOURS learning blender ([link]
) and it's the most fun I've had since forever. The long term aim of the project here is to use a combination of sketchup and blender to help me produce convincing backdrops, so I don't have to go searching for a stock photo of a wizard's castle etc. I can put the camera wherever I like and the computer works out all the perspective nonsense for me and I can sketch from the render. Yeah, I thought it might be quicker to just use my imagination too, but honestly that's just not going to happen. So far I've made pictures of shiny balls, some plants, a bunch of pillars, a curiously deformed face, some ruins and some random tentacle things. Quite a lot of tentacle things now I think about it. Long story short, none of these renders is in any way noteworthy or worth posting but I just made a tomato to assuage the guilt resulting from the posting drought. Going to do some painting tomorrow.
