Mister Grinch 2017 Timelapse Painting

Timelapse drawing in Blender 3d view using EZ Paint and EZ Draw addons with Blender Render texture slots. Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year - this is the last video for 2017 for me unless I get inspired to do something else. This was over a span of 2 days work with plenty of breaks.

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. Craig has been my friend for so many years that he's been bumped to family status. He is beyond talented AND self -taught. He deserves his big break in this line of work and i know with patience it will come. It will come! Talent like this can't go unnoticed.

    • Thank you for that - I do tend to work in a single image layer for a long time due to seeing some very good artists build their work that way as well, though at one time I abused the adding of many image layers as a crutch. I mainly use them now as ways to adjust the painting toward the end, and maybe to send parts to the compositor/paint a mask directly.

  2. Besides the EZPaint and EZDraw add-ons, available at:

    Check out the EZreadStudio Blender Color-Coded interface theme (no relation) available free at :

    ...According to Noobs and Blenderheads alike, it makes learning and using Blender easier and more productive...try it for more squinting!
