Well this is new– Me actually posting to my own blog. XD

Ok, so a while back I and a good friend who remains anonymous were playing with texture painting. Well he was, I was just a crack-pot tinkering with what he was discovering. BUT…I did get something new out of it that . . . → Read More: Seamless Texturing in Blender

Small Blender VIZ Project

Rendered

About a year ago I designed as elegant of fix I could to the specifications of a particular company for cooling their servers.

B3D_Freestyle

First of all, this is NOT the official Freestyle logo, it does however use the official Blender 3D logo.
