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. This site has a lot of excellent tutorials for beginners. This is very important, because Blender has new users every day. OK, some of them are experienced 3d artists. But I think we must to care of the brand new 3d world explorers.

    Here in Brazil, for example, there are milions of new internet connections every year. This means milions of new explorers, avid for knowledge, but very inexperienced about softwares.

    So, high quality tutorials like LittleWebHut available are precious.

  2. Great tutorial for beginners! Spoken slowly and clearly enough with explanations and no need for corrections...So many times I'm watching a somewhat advanced tutorial where the tutor makes a mistake and doesn't fix it or correct it until minutes later...That's minutes that incorrect information is being reinforced in the brain. Well done!

  3. Good tutorial! This may be a silly question, but is there an easy way to create a cloth that's folded? I've had some ideas, but they seem a bit outlandish, such as creating some sort of physics simulated "machine" to do this. :-)
