Water Dragon Sculpt for 3d Printing


See the model in real time and at any angle at sketchfab: https://skfb.ly/JAWo

After 20 hours of work, here is the finished 3d model I made for my final 3D Printing project. The real life model came out beautifully. I thought it was already uploaded it to the blog, but strangely it wasn’t .

Dragon Doodle in Blender 3d


Tonight I doodled this dragon out of my head in one of the most unlikely applications ever, Blender 3d; a program made for 3d modeling and animation, not 2d sketching.

Blender has this feature called ‘Grease Pencil’ that allows you to draw sketchy like ‘curves’ anywhere you like with your tablet, it will even stick to 3d objects. Note: This has nothing to do textures and UV (Although some use it for retopo)

To test the grease pencil,I set a block in front of the camera (set the camera to ‘ortho front’) and started drawing. This works way too good. I wouldn’t want to paint with this due to each color having to be on a separate layer but for sketching it is super.. er.. surprisingly effective.

Since grease pencil curves are in 3d, I could see many awesome uses for this tool, you can even ANIMATE with grease pencil curves and have at your disposal useful animation tools such as onion skinning.

For a free open source 3d app, blender continues to blow my mind.

I know I have 7 monsters remaining of my 30 monster project and its been a month since my last drawing. Homework and commissions take priority in my life. but after 30 monsters is finished, I will be doing a drawing project concerning dragons as I miss drawing them.

Also here is a screenshot of the sketch in blender:

A Penguin’s Short Slide (Short Animation)

A cocky penguin dares himself to slide off a mountain with a steep cliff edge only to hesitate when it’s too late. My first short animation in Blender.  What I thought would only take me a couple days, took almost 2 weeks.

If you enjoyed the animation, please share with friends.

Coffee Spider Bot 3d Model WIP


Here is the 3d model I made, using a NURBs based modeler called Rhino 5. The coffee spider robot is almost ready to serve its brew to the masses.

I’ve been a polygon modeler and have done very little with NURBs ( I would use them mostly for lofts and then convert them to polygons). They feel so foreign to me. After 5 hours of figuring this stuff out, I was able to assemble this 3d model.  If this was a poly model, it would be twice as detailed but I’m required to use NURBs for this assignment so I’m feeling a little crippled right at the moment. I’m required to use Rhino for this project so I have no choice. I have no doubt that Rhino is a powerful tool, I just don’t know how to do everything with it.

The spider bot should make a fine sculpture when it is 3d printed.

ChipRom Walk Cycle

I took a break from my Penguin animation to animate my Zekrom Oc. I did a walk cycle for practice. It was my first walk cycle in Blender. It took more time then I thought it would .You can tell a lot about someone’s personality and mood in the way they walk.
Design wise I made ChipRom a ‘shiny’ yellow and changed the shirt to a orange color with white trim. I made this model from scratch using Blender and Sculptris. 7-10 hours of work so far.

Sangheili Bust (Elite aliens from Halo)


I spent a couple hours and made this bust of a sangheili. I’m somewhat happy with it although I think it would be cooler if I textured it.
