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. @AlexK: if you live in the Ukraine, nobody stops you from working for a Russian company of course.. Pavel sent this message to us himself, I'm pretty sure he knows where he lives ;-)

  2. Wow, was I happy to see an Unreal 3 script. I clicked on that and was happy to see a "Tutorial with images" link on his post. I clicked on that link and was happy to see the tutorial with a small screenshot of the script in action. Wow, I thought I'd like to see that image bigger, so I clicked on it and got a large porn image...with 3 small kids in the room.
    That's when I stopped being happy. :(

  3. Wolfmanyoda.... Maybe you, or someone, should contact the authorities immediately! Whoever is behind that, whether its serious, or a joke, by the website owner, or some hacker, should be put behind bars... I haven't gone to look myself, nor will look, as I haven't the stomach for that lowest of scum on Earth. Jeez.

    I was gonna' compliment Pavel's excellent demo reel... then saw wolfman's post... definitely takes the wind out of things.

    But yeah, nice reel, Pavel.... very nice... too bad it got mixed up with this somehow. ;(

  4. Ah.... I see how I may have misinterpreted wolfman's message.... When I saw "... with three small kids in the room", I thought the worse! I can see how what you probably meant was that YOU had three little ones in the room with you, and that there was not three in the porno image! Whew!

    Alarm bells stopped ringing for the moment!

    Blessings Blender Brethren....

    And, again, excellent work Pavel... I wish I had your Blender skills!

  5. nice textures! if I want another theme I may switch to the included "Rounded". Some good car modeling and rendering there, Pavel Shabanov!
