Barry and Dan, Burglars


barry.jpgDo you remember the animations Ian Ball made for the British police? An AVSOM wackomatic, a plasma cannon or a freeze gun all protected the properties of British citizens against poor Keith the Burglar. This time, Barry the Burglar and his mate Dan are in for a nasty surprise!

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 ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. This is one of the best 2d animations, made with Blender. I hope the coders will develop the toon line so we can have different coloured toon lines around differnt objects.
    2d is still more popular than 3d, and blender is a great a 2d animation studio.

  2. Being a Linux user I can't use the divx plugin, but making a url like this still works to download:

  3. Fantastic Stuff - love the 2d/3d mix, the improvments between these and the first series shows wonderful progression in using Blender, I hope I can travel as far in such a short time, keep it up and any 2d/3d tips would be welcome !
