A short sound triggered test animation in Blender I created over the Xmas holidays using a Clams Casino tune called ‘Say Your Prayers’ from his free download Instrumentals 4 mixtape. Adding some Synesthesia visualisation styles to a Clams Casino tune worked out really well.
This is a quick animated loop in Blender to learn ‘Bake to Fcurve’ taking the sound to create scale and movement in the animated objects. Music by Sabre called A Wandering Journal.
Big square render this time adding some extra water textures. It works well in 4k full screen. I am still playing around with it in photoshop trying to get in functioning as a potential screenprinted edition.
Created and rendered this over a period of three days. I will continue to develop this female figure floating in water into a screen printing project in the next few weeks. Maybe using a Gold printed background for the water.

Playing around with low polygon animation. Decimating the head down until it just has a minimal number of faces. Then increasing the poly count in an animated sequence.
Wire animation i did as a test to see how i could create an animation in a few days on a low resolution. Really pleased with the result, i’m learning quite quickly when i have the time. I hope that you can see that it is a skull made up of lines with a very tight depth of focus.
New Geometric and abstract tests
Trying out a few new minimal images using Blender to create geometric shapes and moody image
These were created using image textures wrapped around spheres, rendering them then adding geometric spirals and shell like shape into them in Photoshop. Also i played around with very tight depth of focus on some of them to add extra space and colour tonal changes. Mixing painted texture layers with geometric shapes is something i will continue with. In the future i think i will add an abstract page into my site.
Trying out a short animated loop using Blender. More of these to come in the future i think.
