Blender Conference 2010

Published on

Here is a summary post with pictures of my activities in the past week, hundreds of interesting peoples met, 1 talks, 4 workshops and a travel threw Europe from Italy to Netherlands. Unfortunately, I couldn't talk here about all the interesting things I saw and learned or about all the cool peoples I met... It is just a report about my talks and I'll skip a bit Italy to make the article shorter on focus on the Blender conferences.

My first workshop reviewed most of the features non-known about Mypaint, Alchemy or Gimp-painter. At the end of this non-exhaustive review , I took the last minutes in doing a speed based on the 3 softwares. The pictures and the work in progress are under. 14 Bconf 1stworkshop face1
Influenced by the workshop of the artist Andy Goralczyk , I decided to show a demo with music minimalistically commented of my use of Blender ( it sounded good in the Blender conference ) with a paint over for environment. In a big hour, not a lot time to do a perfect rendering, but enough to give 'an idea'. The result picture is under, and the WIP too. 21 Bconf 2ndworkshop blendpaint 5

On sunday, Andy and I wanted to try a fun experiment; start a collaboration with him starting a 3D scene with a black and white render, and I would paint-over. This was one of the most exiting workshop I've ever done, because their was inside this big hour a perfume of improvisation, total artistic opening and challenge to ourself. Too bad I was really sick this day, I had to go back to the hotel urgently just after and couldn't say correctly bye bye to most of peoples I wanted. I recover a bit of health just before leaving the hotel to get back to home; a luck. 24 Bconf 3rdworkshop collab with eyecandy 1

And to conclude, thanks to the public ; always present to fill all the sit in the rooms ( and sometimes more! ) during the conferences. It makes me really happy. ( the photo under was done during the 'collaboration' with Andy ). Thanks to to all the organisation and people who made all this events possible.
