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


  1. wow... impressive modelling :)

    i'm sad to say i don't think the final render did the modelling justice :(

    however, it was definetly the most original/creative entry!!!

  2. It is the monument to russian tzar Peter I in Moscow, by Tseriteli. It's artistic value is questionable, like other works of this sculptor...
    But awesome modeling though!

  3. Yea, good thing ye put it up here Bart. It's as neato as when I first saw it. I really dig the composition of the model, really well done Erik!

    Thanks for the comments :)
    I used blender 2.45 and a 12" powerbook for this project.
    The model lagged so much on my 1GHz mac that I couldn't finish it :/
    Smooth shading pretty much lost the "details" on the model..

    I had loads of fun playing with arrays and mirroring on this one :)
