Colors, textures, patterns, materials – and every combination in between can be used for inspiration. I went out to remote West Texas last week on vacation and spent my time hiking around Big Bend National Park and exploring the tiny town of Marfa, Texas (Pop. 2,121). My wife has been married to me for a long time so she probably wasn’t surprised when I started taking pictures of walls … but I’m not sure what the people watching me were thinking. I know I’m not the only designer who takes pictures of walls but I’ll admit that I would look around to make sure the coast was clear before I took most of these pictures, it’s just easier than trying to explain what you are doing and that you’re not actually a criminal casing the joint.

Visualize Audio with your Music Visualizing Sound One of the more fun effects that I have discovered was the use of sound to animate different things in Blender. Basically, if it can be animated, it can be controlled by sound.To create a visualization for sounds or music in Blender 3D, we will set up some basic text and materials, animate our text using the sound of your choice in the F-Curve editor, and go over how to tweak the result with F-Curve modifiers. Scene Setup To start, let's delete everything in our scene except for the camera. Our final scene will consist of a camera, some text, and a plane to act as the backing wall. ernie-echols Ernie Echols a fine artist who resides in the great state of Colorado.

david-patterson I am a very diverse artist, creating soft pastel paintings, digital photography, and colorful glass sculptures. My digital photography consists of a wide variety of images - Including classic cars, Man Cave items, and scenes from the Pacific Northwest to the Adirondack area of New York. My soft pastel paintings are mostly impressionistic landscapes and cityscapes. I have created over 150 beautiful solid glass sculptures. Though each painting, glass work, or photograph, has a special meaning to me, I want the viewer to walk away with their own emotions from the work - in this way they also become part of the creative process. I obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Washington State University, where I specialized in graphic design and photography.
