It is with great pride (and just a tiny bit of fear) that I announce BlenderNation Links! I'm hoping that it will solve the biggest challenge for Blender users: finding quality and up to date tutorials, downloadable models, textures, books.. BN Links is a community-driven website where authors can leave their links and tag them. Our link browser allows you to drill down to exactly the kind of content that you're looking for.
Looking for Spanish tutorials on modeling? We have that. An English tutorial that covers both rendering and texturing, for intermediate-level users in PDF? We have that, too. Downloadable models under a Creative Commons license? Check. Or maybe you're just looking for English videotutorials for advanced users? Try here. Oh wait! Some good books on lighting and rendering. Just what you needed.
Go on - try it and see if you can find anything you like. Please note that we've just begun filling the database so there are only about 60 links in the system now - hopefully this will increase rapidly after today!
Of course you can leave comments for each link and these comments will be mailed to the link's author.
Where do you find BN Links?
To access BN Links, follow the 'BlenderNation Links' menu at the top of this page, or use the link in the sidebar on the homepage.
Would you like to add your links?
Like I said, BN Links is a community-driven website. You can enter your own links - read more about how to apply for an account here.
BN Links is not finished yet. One of the most important new features will be community ratings and sorting of links by their popularity. For now, I first need to see how our (old!) server holds up under the load. If everything goes ok, then I'll activate new features one by one. Of course, if you have suggestions for new features or link types, let us know!
