Lumpie v98


Oliver Jelko writes:

My name is Oliver Jelko and I study media art at the Karlsruhe university of art and design. Lumpie was originally modelled with Maya back in winter 2008/2009, but then left behind, because I didn't really manage to weight paint it after like 10 tries. In may 2010 I have started using Blender, where I refined the model and almost effortlessly rigged it.

From there it took me about 4 weeks to produce the film. There was a tight deadline for the project, because it was part of my prediploma on july the 1st. After slightly precomposing it in Blender, I used after effects for the compositing. I was strictly using Blender 2.5 alpha builds on linux and windows machines, except for a rapid prototype stl export, 2.49 came to play.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. I like it! just dont understand why he is throwing them in the trash! THIS IS A DOG, MAN, THE BEST FRIEND OF THE HUMANS! DOGS DESERVE ONLY LOVE, DONT THREAT THEM BAD! throw the cat if u want - she wont do anything to save your life even if she can! But the DOG will sacrifice his life for u! so show more respect to these brave animals!

  2. Well done!
    The animation could have done with some more arcs, but apart from that, it was a well made film!!
    Love the retro sound effects!!

  3. That's neat!

    @ Peter: "throw the cat if u want" - wait, wait, what do you have against cats? A cat will hardly bite you to death like dogs occasionally do. Even their owners. I haven't met a rabid cat either.

  4. Lustige Idee, vor allem wenn die Kamera in den PC springt, interessante neue Perspektive!
    Leider etwas kurz, den "Konflikt" hätte man sicher mit mehr Zeit noch mehr eskalieren lassen können.

    Grüße aus Heidelberg,


  5. Haha! Great one!

    I love that part when camera is "inside" the screen. lol. Draggin' poor puppy around the screen and then into trash can. :D
