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. And the story for this is what??? Nice pic though, but as an unusual scenario for a BN headliner, I feel it is slightly lacking on the info side Bart... could be just me though

  2. Great pic that is indeed. :) Nice use of compositing.
    But even a simple, "heard that a million times already", story is still a story. Picture alone tells a thousand words already, but it's missing a context that even a simple story could provide.

    I agree. Something doesn't look good there.
    BTW I love the composition colors and overall 'feel' of the image!

    If you follow the link to the BlenderArtists thread, you'll be able to see the larger res image and it becomes apparent that the blue ship is much closer to the camera than the planet surface. At low res it is not obvious.
