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.

    This is awesome , I know there are very strong artists out there , who will simply claim the first page / splash screen . I would like to and easy add on where we can put our art work right there on splash :)
    thank you .

  2. For a moment I thought it was a splash in the ocean, complete with foam ... something I've found very difficult to simulate.

  3. So many people commented that the last one for 2.57 was ugly. Here's a chance for all you critics to show us all what you got.
