wallpaper for my mobilephone

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-09-14T06:13:21+00:00

I recently got a new phone and needed a wallpaper for it. So I fired up blender and made one. Its based on the wallpaper I made for my computers a while ago, but this time I also added a tree using the sapling addon

you can dowload the blend file here

or you can download a hires version of the wallpaper here

blender particle experiments - dynamic paint pseudo-reactor particles

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-09-13T04:20:42+00:00

For this part of my blender particle experiments I used dynamic paint to generate an effect similar to the reactor particles from blender 2.49

I used 2 particle systems, the first one is setup as a brush for dynamic-paint, and influences a vertex-group on a plane.

The second one is a hair-particle system that uses the vertex-group for length and density of the created particles.

so I can create a bunch of smaller particles where the big ones hit the plane.

Blender particle experiments - glowing particles

For this part of my blender particle experiments I made light-streaks out of particles

Blender particle experiments - particle-info node

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-09-11T04:30:36+00:00

For this part of my blender particle experiments I used the new ParticleInfo-Node in the Cycles material editor to generate a material that changes over the lifetime of a particle

in the current testbuild the particle-node still has some issues like crashing when the emitter is hidden or setting the particle lifetime to zero on the frame before the particle gets removed, but I really like it

this won't be the last animation I made using it - for sure :-)

Blender particle experiments - black fluid

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-09-07T05:06:03+00:00

For this blender particle experiments I made another set of fluid particles that cover a sphere. This time I also animated the particles using ShapeKeys

blender particle experiments - spherical bounce

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-09-02T09:39:25+00:00

For this part of my blender particle experiments I made some particles bounce of a spherical object. The effect was generated using a spherical object that acts as a forcefield and a obstacle to the particles. The particle system needs to have the gravity turned of.

Blender particle experiments - spherical fluid

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-08-31T16:24:57+00:00

For this part of my blender particle experiments I made some fluid particles that are floating around an invisible sphere

To make the particles float on the spherical surface I added a sphere and made it invisible. Then I added a forcefield and set the strength to -1. I turned of the gravity for the particles and made the sphere a collision object.

Blender particle experiments - bubbles

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-08-30T16:44:33+00:00

in this part of my blender particles experiments I used particle-textures to change the size and the location of the particles

Blender particle experiments - growing

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-08-29T06:10:22+00:00

Its been a while since I used particles and the BI-Renderer for the last time - so I made a particle experiment again

for this blender particle experiment I used a cached particle system and rendered the particles using a strand material

how to remove the blender default-cube with style - part 2 - burn it

Nikolaus Gradwohl2012-06-26T05:48:46+00:00

When starting a blender scene almost everybody removes the default cube. This is kind of sad and therefore I started thinking about who to remove it with style.

in this part I removed the default cube using an animated cycles material to make it burn

more to come ...

this is my day 26 project for 30DaysOfCreativity
