Surveying the Land and Virginian Topography

By |November 10th, 2014|

Each mini project I start seems to warrant yet another big one. The fireplace led to the need for a library and an entire house; the house led to the new website; and now I'm [...]

Fire Simulation Tests for Fireplace Scene

By |November 7th, 2014|

As you can see, I've been playing with fire. I do not mess with fire in real life, never have. This type is completely safe, though! After Blender 2.71 came out, I decided to try [...]
