This video is a speed video tutorial done as a Christmas gift for my blog on http://www.davidrevoy.com and on sintel.org The theme of the illustration is Sintel and Scale , the heros of the movie 'Sintel' were I was the art director. In this video you will see my technics to do a watercolor with only open-source softwares on a Linux system ( I use a tablet, a wacom intuos 4 medium ). As I'm french and don't like my noisy voice on my bad microphone ; I pasted few comments over the timelapse.

Bsurfaces is a modeling and retopology tool which combines the use of freehand strokes, bezier curves or loose edges to generate polygonal surfaces. It can be included in a traditional polygonal and subdivision modeling workflow, speeding it up substantially.
Bsurfaces is a Blender add-on, it can be used to build both open and closed shapes, extrude selections, bridge between two selections, having full control over the shape, direction, and twisting of the final surface. The output is a clean topology composed of quadrilateral faces. Triangles are also possible when building surfaces using crossing strokes.
The different options can be modified interactively, allowing to see how they affect the resulting surface in real-time.

In this Blender 2.6 video tutorial, we take a look at using the Ocean Sim modifier in conjunction with the Cycles render engine to create a gorgeous ocean scene. This tutorial covers the entire process needed to create the final result, including generation of the ocean, the sky background, rendering in Cycles, and setting up the composite nodes to create the final effect.
