I’ve gone to the trouble of updating my about page so please read it. Pretty please.
Much has changed. In fact, I had a good mind to start a new blog, but it would have been quite a bother to amass such a stupendously large (99) amount of followers again. So I’m back. Or at least a slighty older me is back – older mind you, grownupness subject to debate. I started university this year, started watching anime as well, and stopped watching anime. Apparently A-Levels only carry one through first semester. Given the severe lack of time I have little idea why I am blogging right now. Truth be told, I have never written a proper blog post – mostly due to my lack of confidence in writing skills being second only to my lack of confidence in my chemistry marks. I guess making a fool of myself stopped mattering about one month into uni; if one embarassing mistake is followed by a worse one, one starts forgetting it all. As I was saying, I have never had any intention of writing a proper blog post, but maybe I shall. I have some opinions on a certain anime series, garaunteed to be of no interest to you and to gain me a few million enemies. I most certainly won’t write about that. Maybe I’ll write about how horribly difficult Mathematics 124 is. No, that would be rather amusing for me, but the rest of the world couldn’t care less or thinks Chemistry 127 is worse. Maybe I shall not write about anything, because I don’t really have anything to write about, or maybe I shall promise to not say another word and to keep posting drawings and photos and low-poly 3D art. Yes. I’ve said hello, I’ve explained my absence and now I can shut up. Cheerio, and thanks for never having bothered to press the unfollow button!
Hand-drawn displacement map. My cousin has agreed to do a proper render on his gaming computer as my ancient 2MB ram dual core machine can’t handle 7 subdivisions, glass and displacement maps.
Nuka Cola bottle, modelled in blender and rendered with cycles. I’m trying to figure out the best way of modelling the circular embossing around the logo. Any help appreciated. I will be asking around on blenderartists though.
I will not describe how to make a hologram because I am extremely lazy and I want to somehow get round to blogging. If you don’t know, read up. That’s what I am currently doing.
I have not yet managed to get my hands on any proper holography books so I am either completely wrong in what I am about to say or someone has done it before.
Set up three lazers, one red, one green, one blue along with mirrors so that they all reach the object from the same direction. Create three seperate transmission holograms, one for each lazer. Stitch the developed film together and play it back in a loop like a film movie. Open and close the correct lazer shutters in sinc with the ‘movie’ and persistence of vision should combine the r,g and b holograms into a full colour hologram.

If you want an idea of my usual work scroll past the photo editing and experimental stuff. The posts Imre and Night Heron always stay at the top of the page. My preferred media are a Pentel Energel pen, fineliners, and 2B pencils . Also, the blog font does not always load (fixed by reloading page), it should be Ubuntu, a bold minimalistic font.
