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. Hey! In less than a second after seeing the thumbnail of this I thought "that must be Manu's work" and so it was :D! Great that you shared you skillz secrets also with in the video! They way you do these images is super effective because you don't waste time making things just right in 3d, but rather do it 2d which is apparently tons faster. Great image :)!
