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 ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

      Yes Bart! It was a great tutorial about lattices ;)

      Your tutorials were the best. I still remember "Modeling a Castle" also :)

  1. hi.. can you post maybe how you make the water.. I don't know how to make the "unter water reflections" when the light goes into the water.. Somehow with the volumetrics....

    • Its a combination of volumetric lighting and caustics to get a good underwater look. The volumetrics give the light rays passing through the water and the caustics give you the bright lines of light on the sea floor or fish or whatever.
