Now Playing Tracks

typette:

so earlier today I found a program called PlantStudio which is abandonware from a small studio in 1999. It’s no longer updated, but it runs perfectly fine on modern machines. It allows you to generate flowers! Essentially, you provide a bunch of parameters like number of petals, how the leaves arrange themselves, the shape of the leaves or petals, and other things (you can mess with them later) and generate a pretty flower in 3D. They’re not spectacular renderings, mostly they’re on the level of Google Sketchup- but as you can see, they’re very pretty! You can “randomize” them so they look a little different, and make a boquet of roses, or a bunch of wildflowers, or ivy, or dandelions, whatever you like. When you first open it up, you go “Plant>Create New”, which will walk you through a wizard where you just answer some questions. You can later enter the very detailed specifications for the flower and change them later. Above are examples of what you can do if you just shoop it a little bit :P 

You can also go to their website, and download preset plant files, for real-life flowers if you like, and generate some of those. You put all these generated flowers into your main window, arrange/rotate them, and there you go!

It’s free to use, provided you register with the free name/PIN they provide you with. 

Download it here. Register it here. Lots of cool flower presets here. And a quick over-view here.

enjoy :B

Do yourself a favor. Learn to code. Here's how.

boomeyer:

I’ve said this to my non-techie friends countless times. It’s no secret that being able to code makes you a better job applicant, and a better entrepreneur. Hell, one techie taught a homeless man to code and now that man is making his first mobile application.

Learning to code…

The Dash website for novices is awesome~! I can’t wait to do the rest of this list of stuff!!!

Are you a sculptor or 2d artist?  Are you in a tremendous amount of pain in the shoulders, arms or wrists? 

One of the most important things that no one will ever teach you in school is that art is a physical activity.  It’s hard on your body.  Just like any physical activity, especially one that may last for eight hours, you need to do stretches prior to starting.

Pain can include shooting pains down your arms, tension headaches, numb fingers, cramping of your pecs around your sternum, ect.

This video is a great starter for opening up your shoulders, which will go a long way to helping you stay pain-free.

Most artists don’t make enough to afford health care in the states, so preventative care is a MUST.  Do some stretches before you end up doing permanent damage like I have. 

Other stretches to check out are ones for carpal tunnel and tendonitis.  They are two different conditions that affect the hands and wrists.  If you can, go get a massage and ask them to focus on your shoulders and hands.  Deep tissue/sports massage seems to work the best, although other forms of massage may be just as helpful.
