About Author

Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)


  1. The screen is way too round, the power button isn't pressed and the led is red... lol, I'm just being obnoxious, great render!

  2. I see what you did. put some text in the bottow right to trick people into thinking you did this in blender..very clever! nice photo, errrr... render :-) As mentioned already, I agree the tv screen looks a bit too round, but I haven't seen every TV that exist so perhaps this is spot on. Really nice work! Makes me want to lift up that lid and pop in a game!

  3. Good render!
    Except maybe for the chromatic aberration.
    You know? Photographers spend hundreds of dollars buying better lenses that dont have CA.
    Yet I know a lot of CG artist that add CA

  4. Wow, thanks guys, I'm still learning blender and your tips are very welcome. This TV is very similar to what I had with the rounded tube. A friend of mine had a NES, and the light was green (I think). I tried to show my room in the late 80's when I was a video game compatible with NES (Top System, Milmar). My dream was to have an original NES. : D

  5. One thing missing though, you have the video and sound outputs there but no cords attached ;) Other than that it's a great render, like others have said it looks damn near real. Great job!

    • The NES had an RF output on the back, which most people used at the time. It could be daisy-chained with a television antenna to piggyback on top of your standard TV signal. So in a lot of cases, the RCA jacks on the side would go unused.

  6. Awesome models, render, everything.
    I love it. xD
    I love how you got the Duck Hunt/Super Mario Bros. game in there.
    One critique: the cord to the controller is way too short, but I'm sure you didn't want some crazy cord lying all over the floor. :p

    Trigueiro, nice photo! :) Congratulations!
    One thing I've seen that let me thing it's not your real console - no TV pixels! This old TV set must have a grain.
