This model pack consists of 15 game-ready low poly medieval buildings, defence towers, a windmill and a well.

In conjunction with other medieval buildings from our gamedev category you can create a town straight out of the Middle Ages.

The models are of exteriors only and suitable for first person, third person, and orthographic points of view.

The mesh topology is clean, efficient and has only tri and quad polygons.

This shows the same thing, but a bit more simply:

Here’s how sine and cosine apply to triangles:

Cosine is the derivative of sine:

Exhibition Review : ‘Through the Never’. Solo show of Serhiy Kolyada.

From the 05 of September to the 19th of September 2014.

бар Барабан, 4a Prorizna Str., Kyiv.

Art expresses itself in a variety of forms and ideas. To consider art as merely a vehicle of aesthetic pleasure, is an emotionally and intellectually limiting concept. Important and relevant art often delves into societal and political issues. It can challenge, forces the viewer to think on sometimes problematic or controversial topics. An artist can be a chronicler of their time and use his or her art to hit at the what they see as the problems that surround us. The things that need to change. Serhiy Kolyada is one of those artists and we we’re lucky enough to be able to go to the opening of his latest solo show, ‘Through the Never ’ at бар Барабан.

The works all revolve around Kolyada’s perception of some of the big, underlying issues in Ukrainian society and politics. He doesn’t pull any punches. Corruption, prostitution, rampant consumerism/capitalism, the disenfranchised, the criminal, war… it’s a long and powerful list. 
There is an appealing rawness to his works. In part it’s the subject matter but there is also the fact that Kolyada is mostly self taught, which in itself is impressive when you consider that his medium of choice is the ball point pen (not the most forgiving of mediums) and his technical mastery of it is apparent.

Some of the more impressive works on display are large scale compositions, created piecemeal as the artist adds elements to the image as he goes along. The structure is fluid, he gives his imagination a free reign and space for the subconscious to make associations and connections that may not have been possible had everything been pre-planned. 

As already noted, the majority of works are made with biros, there are a few mixed media pieces where colour is added by using gauche. Overall though, the atmosphere that the ball point pen medium gives, the darkness, the grit, is perfect for the subject matter.

We would encourage everyone to drop my бар Барабан and see this show. We would like to note though that due to the content of some the works, it may not be suitable for minors.

Use this trick so you don’t get mixed up when doing matrix transpositions:

What the Pythagorean Theorem is really trying to show you:

Exterior angles of polygons will ALWAYS add up to 360 degrees:

If you’re studying trig, you better get pretty comfortable with circles. Check out this visualization that shows what you’re really looking at when you deal with pi:

If an arc of a circle is the same length as its radius, the resulting angle is one radian:
