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. Nick can it be a 3D architectural animation with charector motion ?

    nice will try to submit a animation of a carpentary shop

    thanks for nice contests.

    Good luck to all


  2. Sorry for the long delay on replying:

    Yes it can be. Use any software, just Blender 3D is the recommended software for people.

    Everyone: You have good chances of winning! Try your best for a free $100!

  3. Hey everyone; I came across this site through a Google search, and I was curious of people's different replies, and was hoping for a difference of replies. I'm looking for some new Anime to watch, and I wanted to know what your opinions are on the best of 2003? Nothing too far back, nothing too new either, as I hate the recent crap. Any suggestions?
