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. Great work on these, I had a look through the entrants and they were all so good.

    I'd love more of these. I was busy with the Xmas competition, but if there are more I would love to enter...

  2. Nice entries! I'll try not to miss the next one.

    One suggestion, Bart. You could also post the results of the weekend challenge from blenderartists. It would help to promote them.

  3. It's nice to be mentioned here on BlenderNation! :D I'm following this site daily and it's for me the first place for news and tips about Blender. Thank you all! See ya for the next contest!

  4. I would like more of these mini-contests. It's a very nice way to stimulate participation from other Blender users, to promote friendly competition we can use to push ourselves (similarly how Ludum Dare does with game developers), and just to have something to regularly look forward to here. :)

  5. Perhaps using the winning image as a header image can be used as an additional recognition for the winner? This could provide some additional motivation and exposure.

  6. Nice contest. And congrats to the winners. I do think that it is a good thing that the community have those contest. As mention above its a friendly competition and it surely help everyone to practice and at the same time have a good time :).

  7. Congrats to the runners-up and to the winner as well! Great job guys.
    +1 for more weekend mini-contests, I'd definitely like to try my hand at one of them when my school semester finishes.

  8. a fantastic little competition.. i'd love to participate to these little things if there would be more.. this time had now time sadly.

    "after sauna" is the best in my eyes!
    congrats to all.
