3d Melon Splash

Another Blender work: Watermelon dropped in water, with sound effect.

It's not perfectly realistic but I learned so much in the process. I am never able to follow tutorials from beginning to end. After a few minuts my minds starts wandering arround, and I end up making something completly different from what I first imagined. For this one I learned most from Andrew Price (Blender Guru), Tutor4u and for the animation part Sardi Pax.





The watermelon was textured with a wave texture, here's a screenshot of the nodes setup

Wall Art that makes you Smile

With the change of seasons it's always a good idea to look at your walls and make some changes. Why not choose something that makes you smile everytime you see it? Print on demand sites may not be the first place where you look for wall art but let me show you some illustrations I found on Society6. Who wouldn't want these?

Some wisdom for the bedroom maybe?

You can choose the size you want them printed on and buy them with or without frame.
And while you are redecorating you might even want to get some matching throw pillows.

Tomato and Garlic Curtains

 If you know me, you know how much I love my homegrown tomatoes. A while ago, I have designed some  FABRIC with a picture of my tomatoes.  Now Deborah has made an awesome curtain with  this fabric combined with her ‘Garlic Star’ and a piece of honeybee ribbon trim designed by Laura Foster Nicholson.
It's really fun to see some of my work in use like this, thank you so much Deborah for these pictures!
