    bahmaine, I like it. And I think the falling pedals aren't so bad. It's what makes it unique. I'm a goof for symmetry but it's great when people test those boundaries to stand out.

    Something happened to your image. I can't zoom in enough and it's all blur if I try. Can you link a larger copy?

    It vaguely looks like you are trying to snap text to a grid. I use Blender...

    I believe most scratchboards that are black are in fact the same thing but just already covered in India ink....

    Awesome work! Your style is kind of warm and fuzzy looking.

    I know what you mean about having things appear to never be finished. I spent ages just on the nose on this dragon (copied from...

    I download a lot of stuff from blendswap. I like how you can surf models based on the copyright type. For example filter results to be only CC-0 if you want totally free stuff. CC-by if you want to only...

    Hey guys...got a question.

    It seems like recently I've been doing a lot of projects where I need certain textures. For example..leather, marble, metal... For the life of me I can't find any place to find them or how to make them...realisticly anyway. I've tried Photoshop and Illustrator but it's very time consuming to look or try to make them. In the meantime I've been misc stuff on my scanner to get the look I'm looking for...but marble...am I supposed to lay a gravestone on my scanner or what?


    Where do I find/buy some textures???

    There are some decent tutorials on tutorialoutpost.com under textures.

    There are also some links in the Resources section of the forum under "The Ultimate Resource Thread"

      Use a thin piece of marble, like a single floor tile from a home improvement store, place felt discs at the corners so you don't scratch the glass. Scanners make excellent close up lenses. Great for getting pictures of circuit boards, or anything with a shallow depth of field. Only problem is loss of control over lighting. In the past I've made blocks with double sided tape applied to one of the vertical faces - useful for getting unbalanced objects to stay still for the scanner. Don't underestimate the power of the scanner.
