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. Excellent news, Gimp and Krita are the core of the 2D work that supports my 3D renders I always look forward to a Gimp update and this one sounds fantastic. The biggest new feature for me at least is the integration of the iwarp tool into the package to make a proper warp tool that works on the image directly, fantastic news going to give this a try!
