More work on the hospital model

I’ve finally got back to working on the hospital model again. I gave it some new textures from Poliigon for the bricks and concrete areas as well as a pebbled roof texture. I also re-scaled it to be more to scale for the 14 to 16 foot floor spaces that I discovered are average for […]

Lighting Issues with Knuckle Gun

The knuckle gun is the first model that I have gone for a full photo-based rendering in cycles. I created my own gold tone for the inlay sections and used metal and stone textures I got from Poliigon to create the gun and the stone surface, but I am having some trouble getting the lighting […]

Newest Model is a J.Del Haxhe Knuckle Gun

I’m working on a knuckle gun as my newest model. This came about on accident when I was browsing the internet for ideas for building a weapons rack and I came across an image of a small hand-held crossbow. It was an interesting design that caught my attention, so I followed the image to the […]

Lantern Model

I’ve got started with Patreon at long last by uploading this lantern as a test at the $5 support tier.

I would normally ask more for a model like this, but since I am still learning how to use Patreon, and how to share model files, I have released it at the $5 support […]

Strongbox Model

I made a new model last night and today after seeing that the theme for the weekend challenge at Blender Artists was “thief”. I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot in my heart for the thief character type, something I attribute to Han Solo and Robin Hood.

I decided to make a treasure […]

3D Keys

I made a scaled key in Blender and added a few different looks to it, from old rusted to brass to a nice shiny steel key look. I am thinking I will make a few more things like this. When I was making it I also created a full door knob assembly, but I have […]

Old Building Redesign

A while back I made a base for a research hospital. It turned out okay, but I never actually went much beyond just the base building shape and a brick skin on a building with no doors or windows or- anything.

The current model as it sets in my files is the barest of bones […]

Poliigon CG Materials

I’ve been considering joining the website Poliigon, which has CG materials for photorealistic renders. I’ve followed the guys behind the site on YouTube for a few years now, and I have decided to try a few of the free materials they have to see if I want to give the 30 days trial a go […]

Airlock update

This is how that airlock is starting to look. Pretty big change from the way it had started out, but so far I am liking how it is going much better.

Designing An Airlock Door for Mars Station One

I’ve decided that I want to create an airlock door in Blender, part of a mission to create my own little Mars Station. I started out with looking at designing an entire space station, but then sanity kicked in and I decided to start smallish. I got to looking at the model I had tossed […]
