I'm a bit impulsive. A bit. Sometimes.
Fine. I'll admit: I tend to get myself into a whole lot of shit because I'm "no" challenged. People ask me to do things and I say "Sure!" before I even know what they're asking. Now, if it's something I'm really interested in, I'm pretty likely to get myself over-committed before I'm even asked.
I just started learning Blender in January. In February, I committed myself to teaching a class in 3D modeling for this fall - late August.
I'm an idiot.
Nevertheless, the commitment is there, and I can't NOT teach the class - I already have some kids signed up for it. Which leaves me looking forward to a summer of not barbecuing, not relaxing with a cold beer in a lounge chair on my deck, and not playing video games until the wee hours of the morning. Not that I do ANY of that. I'm just saying, you know, if I WERE to think about doing any of that this summer, the opportunity is now irrevocably gone, and I'm looking forward to a summer of being tied to my laptop at a coffee shop or in my office trying to figure out UV mapping and whether I should try to learn about nodes.
Not that I mind learning this stuff - I'm completely geeked about it... it's just the obligation thing. I don't want to HAVE to learn about Blender...
Anyway, as I sit around and pick out random stuff in my house to model, I thought I would share my latest uninteresting render: a water glass.
Yep, you too can be audience to my summer of irrelevant renders as I try to learn the intricacies of Blender.
Aren't you lucky?
