Blender 3D Tutorials : CG Masters Eat Sheep Sheep were bred at record rates in the early 60′s after a direct relationship was realized between getting a good night sleep and the amount of sheep in the world. With the ability to count sheep into the thousands people were getting more sleep then they could ever dream of. So many sheep were bred and bred strong. Many sheep had to survive in the desert, winter tundra, and even on the moon (with space helmets of course). Unfortunately this has gotten out of control and there is now an over abundance of sheep around the world, endangering productivity and has provided a surplus of warm wool sweaters. To help fight this epidemic of Sheep, Monsters have been released into the wild to reduce the sheep population in a last ditch effort by local secret organizations. Though some evil sheep wranglers from around the world, which have benefited from the over population, are determined to stop the monsters from eating the sheep.

Blackhawk VFX Alexander Weide sent us a link to a piece of his recent work. He is a 3D artist who works mainly with Blender and SideFX Houdini. For one project he needed to quickly rebuild and texture a Blackhawk helicopter. As I experienced on my own, often commercial online models are full of modeling problems. Fortunately Blenders modeling workflow is vert efficient and fast. The chopper was then animated and put together in Houdini because it has an outstanding animation and particle systems.
