Purge ’21

It’s become tradition for me to redesign and/or rebuild this website at least once a year, dazzled by sparkly new technology or fed up with some feature that doesn’t work. This time it’s both, with some mental health issues on top.


Notes




Flower modeling

Trying to make some simple flowers in Cinema 4D, thought I’d try something new. I’m experimenting with a hand-drawn look.

Peeking at a reference image, I drew some flower parts in Procreate.

Hand drawn texture map, diagram layout of flower parts.

After turning the drawing into a texture map, I could make a simple 3D model and UV map everything into place.

Success!
