Rico Cilliers

My name is Rico Cilliers, and I live in Pretoria, South Africa. I've been doing cg art and design for around 8 years now, I'm completely self taught in almost all areas of digital art... from 2D painting and design to sculpting, modelling/texturing and animation, but I specialize in modelling and texturing (high or low-poly asset creation), and character design & modelling.

    Amazing video.

    Just a quick note tho, not related to this post in particular,
    but is this decision to use this ''I'm not a robot'' validation process on every article such a good decision?

    Unless there is a way perhaps for people that are a member and log in that then prevents this validation process to appear on every post, I see this becoming a problem and diminish interests into blender nation over time.

    Just my two cents.

    Wishing you all the best.


    Hello Bart,

    Thank you for your reply.
    here is a link to a screenshot of this event:

    I guess the issue is more serious for someone like me who start his day directly on blender's website, and right-click open in new tab one by one on the links to your website (always been doing it this way). So then every single article require me to prove that i'm not a robot. If I do the authentication ones, and then from that tab go and click on the home button, then I have access to the articles without having to do again the authentication process every single time.

    Witch is better, but the hole point of me of clicking on certain articles and open them side by side in different tabs, is to get to only articles that I'm interested in. Where as now I would have to find them again (look for them) ones on your site.

    Kind regards.
