Heart Candy

Here’s a another free project that utilizes various masking techniques to create a friendly heart design.

Today is of course Valentine’s Day and I want to remind everyone to do something nice for someone special in your life. Could be your wife or girlfriend, mom or grandma, even your sister.

Now, if you don’t celebrate Valentine’s day… DO something nice anyways. Just don’t do something nice for your friend’s wife… that gets a little tricky.

Download Project (CS3+)

See you Monday!

Of the many new features announced with Element 3D V2 (so far), there is one I am particularly excited about and that is the new specular highlight model. The new spec model takes advantage of the new physical shader system and features a natural light falloff  helps create more realistic shaders! You can even get the specular to […]
Element 3D V2 Official Release Date!
Element 3D V2 will be available in 2 weeks on Dec 2! Yeah! I know I’m 2 days past my November goal but we are really happy with the progress and we needed the extra time to get everything dialed in! This update is insane! What can I say, we like to push the limits of technology and features, but […]

I was also given an opportunity to do a keynote presentation which is much different than sitting behind a computer and demonstrating software. I talked about what motivates me, personal challenges […]

Wow, Thanks. You saved my V-Day with the lady with this one. Was better than a card. Emailed it to her, with the copy changing to reveal what I wanted it to say and the rest is history.

Thanks Andrew.

Happy Valentine's day.
Thank you for this Andrew, keeps me out of trouble, I got kicked out of the mall today for asking € 1,- for women to look at my handmade valentine's day shoebox theater. The security guy didn't even bother to look at it himself, he said people complained about me wearing a long raincoat and holding the shoebox at waistheight and the hole on the back of the box and some stupid permit, but all people saw that looked was a heart that said, thank you for the donation and enjoy your Valentine's Day. What can I say, I'm a romantic. Oh well You sure made my day with this heart. I can send it to all my online girlfriends at once after replacing the text with "Your Name" so I can say "hey baby, I made something special for you with "your name" on it for Valentinesday" you're a lifesaver, wouldn't know what to do without you. You're the best!! Looking forward to the Ring Tutorial so I can propose to them soon.
