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. pretty impressive - cannot wait till I can see it.
    the new render improvements must have worked out well for this style
    judging by the work we saw sofar.

    Good Job.

  2. Fantastic - do we have a time when it will be online? I've a whole building of new students and I could get them all together to watch and cheer - just like we did at Studio K!!!! Wooooooop!

  3. Can't wait to finally see it!

    The 3d work on the poster is nicely done, but the positioning of the title looks out of place imho. Surely it would be better placed in the top quarter of the poster(across the forehead) where it would be more legible.

    Currently the S in Sintel is somewhat obscured by the graphics on the bottom left, especially when viewed on the thumbnail size. Just my immediate reaction anyway.

    Of course everything else about the project is top notch :)

  4. Awesome... was hoping this would happen... 30th is my B'day..
    this is My best Birthday gift ever... i'm even planning to buy a new pc soon and start working with blender on my B'day.. :) yippieee........

  5. BTW without trying to sound like an evil bs (and I'm off topic I know) I would also like to see blender dot org with a new look. Sintel's website looks 1000 times cooler imho.
