I was actually working on a different model when an idea struck me. Wanting the an object to look abandoned and old, I grabbed a spider web and threw a black spider in it for fun. But, the web was too large, so I left it off to the side. Getting back to it yesterday, inspiration took a different direction.
Do you have those moments where you discover something and want to dig into it? Today was that day for me. Although what I found wasnít new, I still want to share what I learnedóthat way I wonít forget later. In this post, Iíll walk you through what I found, why itís broken, and what I did to fix it.
Wanting something interesting, I struggled to find a ZX81 program to share. Plus, it was getting close to the end of the month. Digging into my old notebook, I stumbled upon Missile Defense. Although short, I expanded it into a something worth playing. Lets dig deeper.
I got around to logging into Myspace again today. I never really used it in its original incarnation. Truth be told, I wanted to know what it was before when my daughter signed up for an account. Although Ive known that it was more of sharing space for music now, I hadnt spent much time with it. That changed today.
I havent cranked out pictures as much lately. My intent was to work on my writing this month, but life and work intruded. Uninspired to write last night, I searched for something new to render. This cute little LEGO creature offered me a nice diversion.
July 4th is bitter sweet for me. Iíve always enjoyed the holiday with its fireworks and celebration. Food, fair and patriotism mix for a usually fun day. Yet, my wifeís mother died on the 4th, making it a day of remembrance and sadness. Time to find something to take my mind off it.
As June winds down, I find myself reminiscing about writing monthís program. 34 years later, I still remember the glow of the TV as it lit the notebook in my lap. Although I have fond memories of Tic-tac-toe, time isnít as kind to it. Letís dig in.
Each month I check to see what the latest LEGO mini build is. Since I donít have a local LEGO Store, I often build and render them using virtual bricks. This month, I only needed to render it as as mathieub already built it. Yet, I decided to give it a little character.
One of the first things I saw when I arrived in Idaho were colorful balloons floating across the brown desert and blue skies. A defining moment that Iíve carried with me for the almost 20 years Iíve lived here. So, when I came across Visionary Bricksí hot air ballon I had the perfect picture in mind.
Last weeks, I ran across this build by changewing1 of the living planet. Mecabricks is a great community for such finds. Plus, I needed something to tax my old computer while trying out denoising feature in Blender. Stars alignedópun intended, and I was off to render my next image. Keep reading to see how I did it.
