Best of Blender Artists: 2021-45


Every week, hundreds of artists share their work on the Blender Artists forum. I'm putting some of the best work in the spotlight in a weekly post here on BlenderNation.

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. Good afternoon,

    I am a PhD student and I work with Blender for my PhD project. I would like to know which criteria are you using to determine, whereas a render is photorealistic or not.

    Thanks for your answer.
    Kind regards,
    Claire Pottier

  2. When you create a photorealistic render, how do you know it photorealistic? What I mean by that is how do you judge if it is like a photo? For example, if I take a painting and a photo, one can be look like a drawing, the other one like a photo. In my project, we want to create some rendering pictures with Blender but we want to have a different level of photorealism. So it is for that I ask you this question. I hope it is clear.
