About Author

Bart Veldhuizen

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 ;-)

    It looks like some sort of blurring or bloom effect was used. It really detracts from the quality of the image!

    Otherwise, absolutely gorgeous!

    • the animator on

      in the days and the place where this mill was built they may not have known about all the air dynamics involved with the blade design. lol

    • I don't think that "ridiculus" is the right word, really...
      Take the image as it is. Why should it feature particles and be photorealistic for it to be a nice image ?

    • When the non blenderheads come to say something generally it is bad and makes any sense, we all want to see your masterpieces YOUR'RE NOT BLENDERCLAN OR BLENDER FAN GET AWAY FROM NENDER COMUNITTIES.

    I love the look and feel of this. It looks like a model of a broken down windmill to me. I think it is great. Even the ground and tree have that hand modeled feel.

  3. Windmills are built so that the whole thing can rotate around the z axis. Graphics: win. Engineering: fail ;-)
