Home media server/ render manager

Posted by on Jan 23, 2015 in News | No Comments

I have recently been looking into getting a server to act as a render manager for my renders, to act as a central hub for my textures and as a place to back up all of my work files, as I feel I have not been doing a good enough job when it comes to […]

Free VRAY scene

I would just like to thank the lovely people over at Viz Park for the beautiful free scene.  I love the frozen river and the light bouncing off from it.  I am always drawn to scenes in the snow and ice, be it in films, concept art, arch-viz and even extending over to computer games. […]

Happy 5th Birthday to ronenbekerman.com !

A slightly belated Happy 5th Birthday (or is it Anniversary??) to www.ronenbekerman.com ! I found his site many months ago when looking for various tutorials and how-tos and found it to be a thoroughly informative site. He has a good listing of various tools required, workflows, articles and freebies. For the next couple of weeks he is […]

New computers and nodes

New computers and nodes

After my last post I was thinking about sending my stuff off to a render farm to get rendered and hopefully save some time, however in the end as my main computer was starting to feel a little bit lethargic, I decided to upgrade some of the parts and acquire two or three basic nodes […]

I am back

After a couple of months of complete and utter neglect of this blog, I have decided I need to try and get back on the wagon and try and post regularly, at least once a week. In the past two months I have been working on a couple of different projects: a kitchen, an indoor […]

Still alive, learning new things

Posted by on Jan 31, 2014 in News | No Comments

It has been far too long since my last post, which is not great for me. I will endeavour to try and at least get one a week, if not two a week. It really depends on if I can locate something which isn’t terribly boring! In the past month I have worked on a […]

Happy Christmas to you all!

It is Christmas Day… so Happy Christmas to you all! I hope everyone has or is having a great day with their friends and families and that much food is being eaten! We ended up with an 18lb turkey, which my Mum is cooking in her Aga and will be wheeling over from her house […]

Dining Room

Dining Room

So, I haven’t posted in the past couple of weeks because it has been fingers to the proverbial grindstone, or in this case, keyboard and mouse. I have been doing another tutorial on archviz, this time a dining room. I had the bulk of it modelled within a week and the texturing is the thing […]

London, Vray workshop

Posted by on Nov 11, 2013 in News | No Comments

So, I hopped up to London for the VRay workshop at Escape Studios last night. I must say I was impressed with the speed of rendering – I usually use mental ray and VRay certainly seemed swifter. Possibly the settings I use are slightly over the top, but even then I suspect that with comparable […]

Update time

Just an update to what is going on at the moment. My PC is up and running although in the end I didn’t bother RMAing the  Antec Kuhler H20 920 that started acting up. This past week I have been modelling the pulse rifle that I found on an old model kit I have of Motoko […]
