Max is a talented digital artist and Blender user with an impressive professional career. As a Blender user, he's proof that our favorite open-source app is a viable tool for professionals. If you've spent any time poking around the Blender community you will likely recognize his work. Max was gracious enough to answer some questions for CG Cookie and share his insight about working as a Blender pro.
I agree. I started using it because I was used to LightWave and I found that the viewport navigation was most similar in Blender. Over the years, it has expanded and matured organically as I used it, and as my usage scenarios have expanded. I'm very, very excited about the future and couldn't imagine working without it.
I use Blender because its the best. Well said Max. You're a legend.
Incredibly inspiring and talented artist! Great interview!
I use Blender because can SHARE it with other people.
In my case, also because is light and quick to run, surprising every day, fast working with it and it has infinite possibilities.
Great article, and I got to hear Max speak this weekend at the Tokyo Blender Users Group.
Blender is such a power house for rendering and modeling. Been using it over 8 years on and off and thanks to inspiration like Max Puliero & Andrew Price I've been able to progress.
