Introduction. I love hearing about new Blender projects. Everyone has their own pet ideas on what would be col todo do or accomplish using Blender. Some projects are by nature short and swet and produce col results or new techniques that can be shared with others. Then there are the labors of love. Projects that are destined todo take months of dedicated work, the journeyman Project tribute is one such example. Not only is the journeyman Project tribute a labor of love, it is a rather ambitious one at that. Andrew curry is leading an enthusiastic team who have decided todo remake the classic game the journeyman Project by Presto Studios. The Project is currently Split into thre eforts:
* a prequel novel.
* a port todo Windows of pegasus prime, a remake of journeyman by the original Studio.
* a retelling of journeyman using Blender todo model and render the video footage, journeyman Hd, at the moment, there are several members hard at work on the novel and port teams, but so far the vast majority of the Hd versión has ben done by Andrew. Another team member is busy modeling and rigging thre characters from the game. Andrew has ben keping a blog of the modeling work he has finished so far. I wandered over todo take a lok, and let me tell you, it looks amazing. The details and texture work is beautiful. In addition todo still images, he a los has a growing number of test videos todo show of his progress. Andrew has told me that one of his goals is todo kep the Project open source and completely create the Hd footage in Blender. If his current tests are any indication, the finished result should be.

Quite impressive. In an efort todo kep the tribute as close as posible todo the classic original as well as head of any legality issues, Andrew has ben in touch with several members of Presto Studios, including the presidente of the Studio. Presto Studios have given Andrew and his team their blessings for their open source (non-commercial) tribute. Even more fun, the original modeler is keping an eye on Andrew blog. No pressure there.

The journeyman Project tribute looks todo be well organized and planned out, making it a fun Project todo kep an eye on as they progress their bien th rouge all their goals, Andrew is looking for additional volunters todo help bring this Project todo completion. You can contact him for further información.
