Gooseberry Moodboard: Oh my god... It's full of Sheep!



The Gooseberry project has just posted a first glimpse of their ideas and I hope you like sheep. The characters are either sheep or have some sheep-like characteristics. I wonder what's going on here... Thoughts?

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. To be honest, I was hoping for a more 'serious' animation, and not an nth 'cartoony Disney/Pixar/Dreamworks-style animals-as-humans cute' kind.

    • Oh how true. My heart sank when I saw yet MORE cute bug-eyed seen-it-all-before creatures in the picture above.
      PLEASE Blender Foundation! DON'T make any more of this Pixar-esque crap! Be original!

      • Funny considering how Big Buck Bunny is to this date probably the BF's most popular and well known animation.

        Mind you Project Gooseberry may be in 3d, and considering how stylized "pixar-esque crap" often looks better than something trying to be "über realistisch" (Beowulf looked horrible and as gorgeous as James Cameron's Avatar was, How to train your dragon looked better).

        Besides, art style has no bearing on story, it all depends on how seriously it takes itself (Avatar the last Air-bender had a bright Anime/Oriental style and had a very serious story).
        Also is it just me or do those little fellas look like Qilins being chased by a Jackalope?

  2. "I wonder what’s going on here… Thoughts?"

    Clearly, they were reading from the Necro-Baaaaaa!-icon. It does not bode well for them.
