Also wanted: great shaders, materials and node setups for any great looking materials and effects.

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. Dang, I've got to finish my lightsaber tutorial in time for this. Rotoscoping would be an awesome addition to an animation issue. Plus the introduction to nodes.

  2. YES! What LsBlend said. Please include the new camera jitter technique as a tutorial.

    Don't let that one get lost in the black hole of blender tutorials/techniques!

    Look forward to this issue. I haven't ever been game to give animation a fair go. Been trying to get this lighting and rendering down pat. So if it includes beginners tutorials I'll be happy indeed!

  3. I would write a tutorial... if I knew anything about the Art of Animation myself XD. Looking forward to this Issue, I wanna learn this stuff badly!

    @CrazyJack: Was the frog moving, or were you? Remember it's all relative! WooOOoooooOOOOOOOoooo....... *whispers* relativity....

    I also would like one of camera and lighting... actually I think there was one on lighting... can't remember. Oh well just make me another. Chop Chop, get to work :D.

    PS: The BlenderArt Team ROCK! Keep it up you sexy things you!
