The making of empty block

empty block

When creating this image there was not actually a plan or an idea for it. I have heard it said that inspiration will find you working. Well in this case it is actually how it happened. I had started working on two things in particular, one making a low poly building set and two planning a tutorial for the same. Once I had completed a building in my set I wanted to see how it looked and I started added things. The next thing I knew I had begun kit bashing, appending old model into my blend file until I finally had a scene. The old chevy model I got from blendswap as I needed something to fill the scene out. Thank you Daniel Kreuter for sharing this cool blend file. http://www.blendswap.com/blends/view/27403

emptyblockThe above image is what i ended up with and I felt it needed something. After reading a post on blender artist. In the article Reynante Martinez  breaks down his creative process. What interested me the most was his method of post processing. I often go in to do my compositing and I get other than my desired effects or results for an example I had posted an image on blender artist and the feedback I received was related to overuse of the compositor. http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?360887-Factory-ruins I always felt a little uneasy about blenders compositor but still I push on trying to learn an achieve my end goal as I try to use just blender in my 3d work.

In closing I do encourage you to check out the work of Reynante Martinez at his blog and the post on blendernation. I hope you enjoy this image and this short explanation of the creation of this image helps you out a little. Check back with me from time to as I share more of my blender experiences with. Live. Love and create.
