Photo Details: This is a 3D rendered watch created in Blender. Just an experiment to see what I could design in a short period of time.

Shoe Eyelet with string. Some stitching is visible as well.

 

Photo Details: I was looking at shoes and thought I should take a picture. I am using the vivitar macro lens attachment for mobile phones. It gets great detail. The only downside is that the camera on the mobile dulls the color.

Homage to Stargate

Photo details: Hoping to one day find the device that solves the space travel conundrum. In working in Blender, I am able to model environments that one day could be a reality.

Photo Details: I had been looking for a small but cool way to display pictures on a desk. I decided to create a prototype of a small picture stand. The prototype is so good, I think I am just going to stick with it as the main desktop attraction.

Tools:

  • Foam Board (same material often used for high school science projects)
  • 3 inch knife from multi-tool
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Adhesive
  • Lamination sheet
  • Premium presentation paper with matte finish

Notes:

The pictures measure 2 in x 3 in and are affixed to foam board. I can change the picture of the day easily and also create a different mood for the desk. Cool right. I wanted to create a wooden stand, but did not have any good wood lying around. In an effort to be more conservative, it is probably best to use a non-wood material and save the trees.
