Made w/Code Teen & Pre-Teen Girl's Activity

For those of you with young daughters, nieces, granddaughters, or friends with teen and/or pre-teens out there, the Google's Made w/ Code  has a new project out.

Here is a link to Google's latest project.  It may be of interest or a great summer project.  Wonder Woman Made With Code Project

Even if you do not have or know any young girls, you can still support this great cause by volunteering in varying coding clubs in your community or by making donations to support this cause.

Here are a few Wikipedia articles and/or resources you might want to check out to learn more about various projects and organizations.

One of the things I truly enjoy about getting involved in various global Internet-based communities, be they Second Life, Marvelous Designer, GameDev, or, the many other Internet-based communities, is the really cool and fantastic people you are able to meet and chat with. Along the way, you can't help but notice those who are forever assisting others in one form or another.  Miss B is such a person! :-)

Recently, I have been chatting with a woman named Miss B in the GameDev Forum community.  GameDev is a community associated with some Blender courses I am taking from Miss B is also an active participant in the HiveWire3D Community.

Whether you need textures for your Blender models and renders, backgrounds for your photos, composite textures, building your texture library or, any other texturing projects you might have, Pinterest sent me a nice little kernel yesterday I thought you might be interested in checking out.  

One of those little kernels is some free textures from ibjennyjenny Photography & Free Resources.  The one I found from Pinterest is a set of textures, which will make a nice overlay or background for your projects. Browsing the site, it appears there are other free textures availab…


You are in the right place!
Spring has finally arrived here at Hell House Studios despite fits and starts of the weather. The trees are finally leafing out, grass has turned green, bushes are blooming, as the spring flowers peek out and open in all their colorful glory.

It was a long winter for me even though we had very little snow and the temperature while still cold, wasn't terribly bad for Winter.  Winter just seems to be a long slow season for me where I turn inward and do a lot of reading for entertainment.  :-)

So, in an effort to get with the program and TRY (notice the word try...doesn't mean it will happen) to be more a bit more blog worthy, I thought the first step would be to make some changes, even if small ones, might do the trick of sprucing things up a bit.  I thought maybe, if I moved a few things around, it would be refreshing to the eye. I didn't want to refurbish the whole blog because I still remember the frustration of setting the first blog up ba…
