Voice Over Challenge

December 3, 2020
Hey all!

Today was the most unexpected thing!

I usually comment on Joshua Alexander's blog - which I adore btw! And I always try to come with something comical, sometimes though funny, his posts hit a little close to home - I guess it's because we both have a background in wedding videography, lol.

So anyway, I was late to comment on his latest post, because the week has just been insane to say the least, but when I finally got to it, he issued me a casual challenge - to produce my comment. He even called me "mister" - put that in a pipe and don't smoke it, lol! Seriously though, smoking is bad for you, just don't do it.

You can check out the comments and Josh's post here:

Challenge accepted!

And my answer is here:
This was so much fun to do! I encourage you, if something like this ever comes up or you wrote something whimsical or whatever, produce it just for the fun of it! If you love doing voice overs, it's absolutely worth it!

The only thing I regret about today is that I didn't link this website, initially, in every post I shared, lol.

Oh well! You win some, lose some! The LORD will definitely make this a win! It already is for me! Thanx Josh! Or shall I say, mister!

Hope you all enjoyed this little tidbit!

Have a great one!
GOD bless you!! (^^,)

GOD bless you Josh! You rock!! Your support means a lot!
 

That Square Little Box - Short Story

May 9, 2020
Hey all!

   This is a short story I recorded recently. I've been looking for something to record and a short story was a given choice. Looking through a few public domain options, Arthur Conan Doyle's That Little Square Box was super! I will keep saying it, I love the twist at the end - no spoilers below btw!


The entire thing was pieced together in Blender's VSE. I had to do a lot of work for it in Audacity and Anvil Studio, but Blender just did a better final mix, because of it's ability to ke...

Let's talk Voice Over

March 30, 2019
Hey all!

I recently got to give my web presence a bit of a face lift - like yay! haha.

I also recently made some voice over demos. I have to say, I absolutely love doing voice over work. To make a demo, you need material that doesn't belong to someone else and the LORD generously gave me a swift motivation to make some demos and over a period of two days, I made 7 demos. 7! I was so tired afterward, hahaha.

You can check them out in this playlist!

So getting back to material you can use. When you...

New Node Groups

October 8, 2018
Hey all!

Recently I got to upload quite a lot to the Panther Dynamics main website. While it's not large in file size, it certainly makes Blender's compositor just much more useful!

Today, I got to add two new additions. While they essentially perform the same task, one allows for scene integration and the other is traditional in its approach. I'm talking about pixelation!

Pixelation is, like any other style, used for various things. Often when people think of pixelation, they think of pixel art...

Colored outlines with Freestyle

May 12, 2017
Hey all!

Last night I got a tutorial request from ChrisToons on YouTube. He requested a video about how to make colored outlines with Freestyle and initially, I thought this would be on of those things where it's so easy to do, there is no point to making a video, so I sent him some links and went looking for a video. I did not find anything that I had peace about sharing, though I did send him some links, which you will find at the end of this post.

Anyway, after some debating and going back a...

Removing packed textures

April 17, 2017
Hey all!

A friend from Italy asked me if I could make a small video for him that would explain and show how to remove packed textures. I wanted to refer him to a YouTube video, because I had a serious garden day and other stuff, but oh snap, there was nothing! I mean nothing! Even in searching Google you find relatively little information.

I think this may be because it is sometimes something only newer users struggle with, but it seems to be enough of an issue that it warrants a quick tip, bec...

For Anime - Flag

April 8, 2017
Hey all!!!

Wow, this week really kicks off with a bang! A new example or experimental video, followed shortly by a tutorial! This week is certainly off to a wonderful start!
   If you do Blender tutorials, you have certainly done one of Andrew Price's many many amazing tutorials. I have learned a lot from him and this week, he uploaded a new video - making an animated flag! Of course, his is realistic, so, this was the way I was led! :D


GOD is so great!

Very shortly after uploading the video, I g...

Bible Animations time

March 21, 2017
Hey all!!

Most of you have noticed that this blog is extremely quiet. The reason for that is that I have not been able to get to tutorials of pretty much any kind. My sole focus has been the current Bible animations, which is by far the largest project yet and will take the most effort. That means that this blog, as well as the main website blog, take a back seat to the Bible Animations Blog, which you can find here:

Just to give you an idea of what to expect, here is the Vl...

Pick it up

January 19, 2017
Hey all!

Another quick tip!


GOD is so great!

Now, it's been a while since I actually got to make a quick tip video. I like these for many reasons, but most of all, that it's not hidden somewhere in a tutorial with a different name - very very easy access.

As you guys know, I also got to put up another video today about how to create a newer style candle for anime style animations and this one flows from that video. While I was working on it, GOD gave me the solution for the picking up of an objec...

For Anime - Old Style Candle

November 21, 2016
Hey all!

Yes! Another For Anime fire tutorial:


GOD is so brilliant!!!

So, today I finally got to the editing of this tutorial and I'm super excited about it and I hope you are too! This tutorial assumes you know quite a bit about Blender, because I time-lapsed as much as possible to keep the video as short as possible. For example, the animation process for the character took me well over an hour, not to mention the modelling and texturing of the other elements that have nothing to do with the f...
