I started a new blog, "Small Blender Things" specifically about the new Open Shading Language (OSL) functionality in Blender. You might want to check out to see if there is something you can use in your own Blender Cycles renderings.
Being a game engine newbie I grabbed the chance to read a new Beginners's Guide book, published by Packt. The Blender 3D Basics Beginner's Guide by Victor Kuller Bacone left me with some mixed feelings. Read here why it turned out to be ok after all.
I had the opportunity to read a well written Blender book for beginners, published by Packt. The Blender 3D Basics Beginner's Guide by Gordon C. Fisher proved to be a nice and thorough book. Read more about it here.
Made a small funny video:
I started implementing a new Python web application framework aimed at teaching web application concepts. The first article gives an outline and two additional articles, both detailing jQueryMobile plugins are ready:
The guys at Packt asked me two review two promising Blender books. The Blender 2.5 Character Animation Cookbook by Virgilio Vasconcelos proved to be a valuable addition to your Blender library: excellent coverage of both rigging and animating a character, well organized and very practical. Read my full review here. Blender 2.5 project development hotshot by John E. Herreño turned out to be ok but also a little bit disappointing. You can read why in this review.
You can also find quite a lot of pictures here, for example a selection of photos of pigs and a sample of my Blender artwork.
Of course this website is also a shameless plug for the books I wrote myself. Two so far, most recently Python 3 Web Development Beginner's Guide. Both the e-book version and the print version are now available on the publishers website as well as on the websites of the major on-line book stores.
Writing the book was hard work, but the attention and skills of the people at Packt Publishing and the reviewers of the book were a great help. Kudos to them!
My previous book was about Blender Scripting and was a great experience to write as well.
The old website was in dire need of a redesign so in the first quarter of 2011 I did a total redesign. The old content is still available of course and some of that content will reappear in an updated form on this new site.
