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. First, really great animation!
    And the music is just fitting, perfectly!
    The picture got a great scale! Wish I could do that too :)
    There are just missing some explosions, and a helicopter falling down.
    We got a black hawk down ;)

  2. nice work. quick feedback that the barbs on the barbed wire fence were too neatly aligned and spaced and rotated on each wire. that was a bit distracting. real barbs are much more random.

  3. My recurring problem is : "How do I find it ?" on Blendswap.
    A search for "refinery" gives "oil refinery props".
    "albin" gives only albinos.
