The four-masted Barque called Passat


This is the four-masted barque called Passat which is anchored in Travemünde on the Baltic Sea near Lübeck. And I would really like to know what you think about the image. I wrote already about the Passat some time ago and participated in the “Weekly Photo Challenge: Big” with the blogpost. But here is a new photo of the Passat, which I shot yesterday… I shot the photo with the camera of my smart phone which is a Sony Xperia P. I am pretty happy with the photo quality of the Sony Xperia P. I mean it´s a smart phone … Continue reading The four-masted Barque called Passat

A Cold Day in Travemünde on the Baltic Sea


Yesterday we impulsively decided to visit Travemünde on the Baltic Sea near Lübeck. It was a cold day and we were aware of the fact that it is even colder on the sea. But it was a great day and anyway good because I did not take that much winter photos. It was a chance to take some new photos for my blog. My regular readers know that this blog here is rather about various things and it never will change. But I know some regular readers stop by because of the photos and not because of pc games storys … Continue reading A Cold Day in Travemünde on the Baltic Sea

No longer interested in Sim City 5.


So, I found out that the size of a Sim City 5 map is comparable with a medium sized map in Sim City 4. That must be a joke but it isn´t because that´s how it is. Games get poorer and poorer. Really. Let me rant now… Creative Director Ocean Quigley said “The game has to run smoothly on ordinary computers,”. Oh really? Damn? That sounds like “We want to make the game playable on every junk computer so that we could make maximum profit with the degraded game called Sim City 5”. Me as guy who plays games since … Continue reading No longer interested in Sim City 5.

I Try to Model the Fish in 3d Part 2


As mentioned in my previous blogpost, I do try to model a fish in 3d with a software called Cinema 4d. Today I worked over four hours on the fins near the head. Four hours? Right. As mentioned in the other blogpost, I am good in creating 2d or 3d logos but box modeling is something new to me. Or at least something I need to improve or learn more techniques. Four hours because I messed around a lot with the fish while I did try to get the fins near the head right! But later I gave up and … Continue reading I Try to Model the Fish in 3d Part 2

I Try to Model the Fish in 3d Part 1


Last few days I was bored and started my 3d Software called Cinema 4d. I am not really a professional 3d artist but I try to learn over time. But I have so many hobbys that the 3d stuff needs to wait often. I mean I can use Illustrator, Photoshop and Cinema 4d already but I rather used these tools to create 2d and 3d Logos. I think I am already good when we talk about Logos but back to Cinema 4d I must mention that there is a lot to improve. I still need to learn a lot and … Continue reading I Try to Model the Fish in 3d Part 1
