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 ;-)


  1. Looks great, I'm curious as to why you used blender, maya and mudbox, what where the advantages of spreading you're workflow between the different packages?

    Thanks Guys!
    Nickbenkhoo:For the maya part, in fact, I only used the cleaning tool because I had some issues with my mesh.. 

    fugifunk: I used Mudbox instead of the sculpt feature in Blender because this was an homework for school. (And Maya for cleaning purpose)

    Lawrence : Yeah, I'm a big fan of Gorillaz, I've seen the clip the first day it was online!

    LiquidForgeStudios:Yeah, it was intended. Murdoc look a little like a zombie..Here is the reference picture that I used.
