The art of Thomas Berard


14 year old Thomas Berard has only been using Blender for about a year and is already creating some really good work!

Hi, My name is Thomas Berard. I am a student and I'm only 14 years old. I started CG as a hobby about a year ago, but from that, it became something that I was good at. These are some of my many renders and I try and post as consistently as possible.

About Author

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.


  1. I'm twenty years older than this kid. Been using Blender for five years and he's 100 times better than me. I hate him. Just kidding. Good job!

    • :-) I share the same feelings :-)

      Thomas, oh boy, you obviously have the right talent to achieve results quickly and grow rapidly in this art form. Incredible what you have achieved in a single year. Stay positive, work hard, and keep your youthful enthusiasm. Good luck!

  2. great work, i like the visible interior parts through the frosty window like the christmas tree!
    You might try and add some footsteps in the snow near the porch to give the house a slightly more 'lived-in' feeling and maybe reduce the amount of light in the room on the top floor/add some curtains, but the image and the idea are great!

    • I actually made curtains for the windows but It didn't render because I'm pretty sure I turned the translucency up too high. Even though I never thought about it at the time but I'll keep your tips in mind for future renders. Thanks! :)

  3. These are really great, Thomas . . . especially considering your age! But regardless of that, these are still really great! Stay at it and follow your dream(s). You WILL succeed if you don't give up. Keep at it and we'll all stay tuned to your progress. Look forward to seeing your growth!

  4. Hi Thomas Berard,

    Keep it going! You are doing really well at such a young age :) A lot is to learn, nerver forget that but you seem to be standing where you should! You´ll kick some asses sooner than you think :)
