Episode 100 – Create a Vitamin Bottle
In this special episode I will use Blender and Inkscape to create a vitamin bottle with decal. I’ll be using Blender 2.49b and Inkscape 0.47pre4.
I must warn our Inkscape viewers out there that is episode serves as a bit of a special one. There is a lot of focus on Blender. I won’t get into the habit of doing this in the future. Inkscape should be our focus on this website. Of course I won’t ever rule out using Blender again but I doubt very much that I’ll make another modeling screencast. For those out there that wanted to see this specific episode…this one’s all for you.
I want to give very special thanks to Kernon Dillon of BlenderNewbie fame and Jonathan Williamson of BlenderCookie, CGCookie and Mavenseed fame. I learned how to add a decal to a model from Kernon’s tutorial here. Jonathan’s tutorial on modeling a telescope was very helpful as well. For those looking for more screencasts on Blender then I highly recommend those websites. These guys will get you up and running in no time.
Also, I want to thank Richard for our new intro animation and the funny disclaimer. We weren’t quite sure if we wanted to do something special for the milestone episode 100. In the end we went with whatever took the least amount of time and effort. It’s to be expected, isn’t it?.
