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. That first video, Wow! Those are some silky smooth animations. Those animation blends were also seamless. Beautiful models in both videos.

    The eye directions felt off in the second video.

  2. Hey guys.. This is a little creepy. These are horribly toy'ified representations of women. To counter balance this display you'd likely need a baby-oiled muscle male in a banana hammock that's holding back a five pound heft. If displaying that would make you uncomfortable, then maybe displaying its counterpart, protruding breasted women in midrif-less outfits and daisy dukes, is in poor taste. Just saying.. a bit outputting for a Blender outreach site.

    • Dude, I know female artists who utilize this kind of cartoon-y "toy'ified" style. Lots of them.

      Not every guy who portrays women in male fantasy appeal is someone expecting women in reality to look like products of exaggeration.

      Fantasy is a safe space to enjoy exaggeration. There's really no sense in trying to dictate morality about fictitious pixelated females.

      You can enjoy what you like, and provide what you prefer, without trying to control another artist's preference.

      • By the way, biologically, it said that human males typically seek out breasts and displays of fertility in female humans, as an evolutionary function.

        In fact, breasts in human females are significantly larger than other primates and larger than necessary for nursing, chiefly for the purpose of attracting male attention.

        Just as to similar effect, female humans seek out traits of virility. We males are commonly competing to catch women's attention. Women stylize and idealize men, too.

        Goes back to the earliest art of humanity. From cave paintings and Venus of Willendorf, to Lara Croft and Sofia Vergara.

        Women have had shirtless Fabio-esque men on romance novel covers, and movies about teens loving hunky vampires, and 50 Shades of Grey, and bishonen in Japan, and Sexiest Men Alive features.

        We are what we're "natured" to be. As long as we're not forcing anything on anyone, or being extreme or hateful, let it be.

        Offer up what you prefer, and realize there's room in the world for all these different preferences.
