Tutorial: Army Boat + Glowing Ocean


BlendMaster writes:

Hey Everyone! In this two part tutorial, I have collaborated with Ionwe in order to show you guys how to create this cool army boat + glowing ocean scene inside of Blender. This scene was inspired from Life of Pi and Ionwe will cover the modelling, texturing, and shading of the boat and cans in part one of the tutorial. In part two, I will go over setting up the ocean, the materials, the lighting, and compositing of the entire scene. So I hope you guys enjoy and learn something new!

I've been using Blender for quite a while now. I love Blender and its my passion, that is why I try to share everything I know about it with you guys. There is so much that Blender can do. It is not just a tool for 3D modelling, it can be used for photo editing, animating, and creating games as well. Over the years, I have explored Blender's capabilities and pushed them to the limit, and now I'm here to share those tricks with you. ;)


    • I believe that the ocean is glowing because of plankton accumulation. We tried to base our render off of the scene in Life of Pi where the ocean was glowing.
