Reading from the first topic to the next you'll see news right in the beginning; these are not news of the world but rather news I have found in the Russian internet and decided to share them with you.

Next, you will get to know how to make a procedural map so that your model would look really nice. After that you'll read a little story that tells you about creation of animation movie based on the literary work “Porry Gatter and a stone philosopher”.

And this is not where all interesting things end. You will also find in this magazine a guide how to make a low polygonal model look like very detailed one.

Further next you'll encounter on statistics that was gladly provided by administrators. Very interesting things about Blender community.

The sweetest goes at the end: “the worst minus of Blender” – this is a “must read” for all who just start to study this program. There you'll find some useful tips on “what to start with and what to do next”.

And the art gallery goes at the end of this magazine as we have already got accustomed to. This one consists not only of our works but also of works of our foreign colleagues.

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.

  5. Nice magazine! I wish I can read the language there.. I only look at the pictures! :P
    By the way, the file is uploaded wrongfully in which is really pain for free users..
    the same goes to which is also banned from my country just because the URL has the three letters which makes it a porno site..

    I wish they change where they upload their magazine..
