Blender Anvil
Render of an anvil based off of a Blender Guru tutorial series, found here:
www.blenderguru.com/tutorials/…

An issue I see is some texture stretching around the horn of the anvil, due to the UVs overlapping in that area, so now I know to check for that in the future.

textures from: www.poliigon.com

Yeah, I uploaded something, and it's not horse.

I've been trying to learn me some Blender, with 3D stuff being something I've wanted to do long before MLP:FiM came into my life and got this little DA page started. What's different now is that I have a job that gives me enough expendable income to pay for Blender lessons, so now I'm able to actually pursue that goal. I have more details in my newest submission's description:  I'm Learning Blender Now. Here's a Key I Made. by JustABlankFlank

So, my page here might come back to life if I really buckle down and actually do this learning 3D thing, so, maybe I'm not dead.
I'm Learning Blender Now. Here's a Key I Made.
I am not dead.

Well, this, is what this old brony's been up to lately. Apart from real life stuff; working hard to live debt-free, trying to move out on my own, etc. I've been trying to take up 3D art in Blender, which I've been wanting to do for years, long before I started (and stopped) drawing ponies. I'm still super new to this kind of stuff, despite having a paid CG Cookie subscription for over a year now (ah, real life, always getting in the way).

I made this as practice between lessons. I'm currently focusing on simple objects right now so I can get my topology right, and I'd like to branch out to character modeling, specifically furry characters and perhaps ponies, as well as shading, rigging, and compositing, until I can make full still scenes with characters.

Metal textures from www.poliigon.com
Lit with an HDRI from hdrihaven.com

Big issue with this one I see is that the "handle" of the key is clipping through the floor, a result of using some very simple rigid body physics to get it to sit there as naturally as I could get. The image overall also looks really dull,too, which is not surprising, as I haven't messed with the compositor in maybe... a year or so. It's just a raw render.

:iconprincesscelestiaplz::iconsaysplz:A very good day to you, human. I come to you on your day of birth with greetings... and thanks.
:iconcelestia-plz::iconsaysplz:My good subject Pinkie Pie told me she had taken to congratulating some humans on their birthdays, but even she has her limits. So she asked us for a bit of assistance... and for such friends of ponykind, we feel it right to provide it.
:iconhappycelestiaplz::iconsaysplz:It is thanks to people like you that our land of Equestria, our very world, exists like it does. It is your friendship with us that gave us life. For that, we will forever be grateful and cherish you.
:iconcelestiapleasedplz::iconsaysplz:And so, allow me to wish you happiness, peace, prosperity and fulfillment! My hope goes with you that you suffer no hardship in the year ahead, but should a challenge befall you, I am certain your courage and skill will see you rise to conquer it!
:iconcelestiaorlyplz::iconsaysplz:Now... where is she...
:iconlunawaveplz::iconsaysplz:Here, sister!
:iconcelestiahappyplz::iconsaysplz:Fashionably late, I see! But just in time for the greetings to be given.

I see you had a birthday 6 days ago. neat. good luck with your jim-jams and such. I've been seeing your art floating around other websites. nice to have found the source. 111 deviation nice number. about now you might have realized that I'm trying to bait your interest. Is it working or is it coming off as creepy. well, can't blame me for trying to build bridges. any ways , happy birthday JABF!
