The Lonely Sun

It's part of a busy little world I've been building up that is going to take place around the beach in California. There is a second world that connects to this one. It's heartbreaking but I think the message in the end will be happy.

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. So... the sun's universe is somehow connected to the robots' universe?

    These are both quite good. Keep it up!

  2. Hey these are both really well made! Well done! Love the sun bets it on a show idea!

    and the motion capture in the robot one is well done!

    On a side note!
    I have to comment on the lack of information in some of the posts here recently. It seems that some of the information is very hurried and lacking. I appreciate that the time is limited these days, but BN has always been my fave news site for its quality reporting. Please don't let it slip now!

  3. one thing is sure,
    You know how to choose your music, there are very very nice/
    as for the rest, it is very inspiring and the universe created are unique!!
    Well done.

  4. It looks really good. Love the story, music, rendering,textures. I would improve a bit the character animation ( more arcs ) but this is a great great film. Want to see the rest ! 1 of 50? Long way to go I guess.
