Afternoons Playing Soccer

Bart Veldhuizen

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. very realistic render, you understood nicely how natures imperfections make a render perfect.
    My only point of criticism is the CA, which seems to be a little heavy, blurring out the left side of the ball (also right side of image, but that part is out of focus anyway^^)
    the CA kind of breaks the realism for me, I can't imagine a camera that produces such a heavy aberration effect.

    But anyway, good job :)

    • Thanks for the tips. At the time I had found cool, but after you spoke, I saw that it was exaggerated rsrsr. This image tries to show my childhood, so I tried to render visually the 80's
