Making a car is one thing... but a car is meant to be on the road.. :) so i thought id' take my car on a ride. Dont' mind the crappy texture.. i tried to make it as good as i could.. i think i still require a lot of practice for doing this. Is there any way of getting the polygons on an image so that i can fill that up with the texture? I really would like to see which tool has that feature.
Iv'e spent around 3hrs+ in the complete modeling and texturing of this car model. It really isnt' up to my expectations.. but its' lot better than what could do before :) so im' kinda impressed with myself. Why make a car..?? well have a tree, grass and a small town too.. so why not have vehicles.. so started out with a car. The tools same as before AC3D and Gimp. Ac3d rox for creating 3d models. You should really try out if you get a chance. Hope you like these renders :) (rendered using povray).

This is again a render of a 3d Model that i made using ac3d..I drew the grass and house textures using gimp and used them for the models. Hope you like them. I generally like houses that look like this just did some low poly model of house and applied the textures.

I always wanted to do some 3d Rendering.. finally ive' made something reasonable to be accepted as 3d Models.. i used the trees that i posted before and made a scene with a theif inside it. It took me roughly around 3.hrs to make this thing... hope you like it..:D by the way the tools
- AC3D for 3d Modeling
- Povray (a free raytracing engine) for ray tracing :)

I've always relied on downloaded textures for the games that i developed. I was never confident that i would be able to make my own textures for the games that i might develop. Finally i have gathered the courage to go ahead and make my own textures for making tree models. I took inspiration from many tree models and textures to come up with these textures. Since the normal tree textures are available any way, I thought it would be nice to make textures that look cartoon. So i started drawing stuff using gimp and it turned out pretty good. Let me know that you guys think about it. Below is the texture that i used for making the trees :D as i mentioned before.. this is the texture i drew by myself.

A python game designing contest. Most of you should be familier with this. This contest was a grand sucess the last time and it was just the first time.. the contest is back with a bang. If you got the skills to make the python scripts fun for others to use by writing games this is the contest for you. I have learnt python while i was a TA for a course. I never expected this language to be come such an important part of my daily routine. I thought it would be nice to share info about this competetion. The home page is http://pyweek.org check it out and register.

Have you seen that movie yet? well its surely a kids' movie but then you can really watch it for its' visual effects. We had a talk here at IIIT-Hyd by Mr.Prashanth from Rythm and Hues (india division). It was a wonderful session covering the behind the scenes view of the movie. The techniques used, the hardware used and finally the challenges faced. I realized how hard they worked to create the Lead character (ASLAN the lion) in the movie. They actually recorded the actual lion doing the moves they wanted the character to be able to do and the artists actually put in these animations into the character they made. The artists some how seem to be the most important aspect to most of the entertainment these days. Take games for example they require heavy artist work once the game engine is ready (which now a days are bought right away from Id Software or Epic games. The technology is no doubt very important.. but even with the simplest game engine.. one can achieve good effects if you have good artists (at least this is what i think). This would be quite evident if you see warcraft. The magical lighting etc etc.. are all the result of excellent texturing.

Isnt' that the word that comes to your mind when you see nicole kidman, sharon stone, ash etc.. well yesterday i was watching this movie called "Stefford wifes". The movie is about a sucessful creative director of a channel who gets fired for starting a couple of shows which they feel might bring down the ratings of the channel. The story is about how she rediscovers her marriage and makes it out of a dreadful situation. I wouldnt' want to spoil the fun of the movie by explaining you all about it.. :)) well its' kinda a unconventional movie with very interesting idea.. which might seem absurd.. but then its quite entertaining.. :) do check it out :)

I realized today that its' quite difficult to actually draw one image a day :( well any way i thought i should draw something or the other and came up with this plan to draw a teddy bear. It's not very pretty i agree.. but ive' tried my best to give it a furry luck... i failed though.. :( would love to know how to make it furry looking.. you know some technique let me know .
