Mike Pan has given himself a challenge - for 30 straight days, he wants to transform Blender's default cube into works of art. The results are astonishing! Check them out - Mike is sharing the .blend files of his scenes so you can dig in and find out how he did it.
I've been working on a little 30-day project, everyday I'd create an image using only an untouched default cube (and lots of modifiers). It's kind of a fun exercise in being creative while being constrained. But to be able to create anything at all speaks to the flexibility of Blender.
