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.

    Lol I have actually thought of making a fan club... never got the time to execute the thought thou :x Needs some work though... black and white boxes with default font is not kewl :P

    Boy am i in! :D

    Rule nr. 2 You don't talk about The Brecht van Lommel Fan Club.

    Rule nr. 3 If someone says "stop" or goes limp, taps out the fight is over.

    Rule nr. 4 Only two guys to a fight.

    Rule nr. 5 One fight at a time.

    Rule nr. 6 No shirts, no shoes.

    Rule nr. 7 Fights will go on as long as they have to.

    Rule nt. 8 If this is your first night at The Brecht van Lommel Fan Club, you HAVE to fight.

    NB. all fighting is done behind the computers with the use of blender 3D.

  3. If there is a BvL fan club, then we must start a Ton Roosendaal cult !

    The Church of Blenderheadology. (I managed to mix Roosendaal and Pratchett yeah)

  4. I still have the clothes that I wore during the first blender conference we were together at, neatly packaged in a vacuum bag as to preserve all possible odeurs and dna that may have been transmitted during coughing, hand shaking etc.)

  5. OK! Even I if don't know what Brecht thinks about all that, I can't but contribute. Why fan clubs should be just for certain professions and not for some others? ;) And because I'm grateful to Brecht that I even came to use Blender (because of that groovy UV unwrapping he made), I'm in too! :-D

    But I'm sure he deserves a better picture. We adore him, so it should be something more worshipful. I made a quick repaint of the current picture to show the idea. You can view it here:

    What you say? :)))

  6. Wow! Create an e-shop there! Fanclubs don't live just from donations. Start selling keyboards with his autograph! I would buy one!
    well... if I had paypal...
    and maybe not... eh-
    But nonetheless, fanclub without an e-shop is no fanclub ;)

  7. Wow, this is great.
    As soon as I find out who Brecht van Lommel is she will be my messiah.
    And she will lead me in times of darkness.

  8. Informed Enthousiast on

    I know who Brecht van Lommel is, and now I know that HE wil be my messiah and HE will be my light in times of darkness. All hail, The Allmighty Lord Brecht
