Several weeks ago, I stumbled on Blender. And since then, it’s AMAZING how it has opened my eyes to the world around me. Now, I notice every light, every shadow, and textures I never knew objects had. NOTHING is smooth… and NOTHING is really BLACK or WHITE but somewhere just in between. After fumbling through the program for a while, reading the manuals and books, and going through dozens of tutorials, I’m starting my first real project.
About 4 years ago my father passed away. Since then, our house has been completely remodeled. Nothing remains of when he was here. Looking through some old photographs, I noticed that in the corner of many of them is the seat where he used to sit, at the end of the sofa. And in EVERY one… it’s the same. The same worn-out armrest… The same ashtray filled with cigarette butts, and always one burning… The same half-filled glass of Coca-Cola… The same remote control with the worn-out buttons… And of course, the same TACKY lamp with the smoke stained shade. I want to re-create that scene, do some post work to make it look like an oil painting and have it printed as a lithograph, framed, and hung next to the spot where he used to sit.
Well, that’s what I’m curently working on, if anyone’s interested. I encourage everyone to try and share the stories behind their work that they post here. After all, it’s only through sharing our INSPIRATIONS that we INSPIRE others.
