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. This is a very disturbing image. This of course isn't true happiness and it doesn't last. I don't know why the others around him aren't happy. Maybe it's because they are next to a druggie. I would advise them to move.

  2. One thing is for sure.... Good art is supposed to stir an emotion inside of you and make you think about something a little bit differently than you did before.  This render sure does do both of these things.  

    I particularly like how I came to several different conclusions about the meaning of this render over the coarse of the entire day thinking about it.  Each with a completely different meaning.  I sent it to a few friends and we debated about it during our lunch hour! 

    In some ways I am glad that the artist told us his true intended meaning.  But in some other ways by him telling us it has taken away from the art and the viewer is not free to imagine all the different meanings on their own.

    Thanks for such a great piece of art work.  It is the first image in a long tie that has stayed on my mind for a whole day thinking about it.  

    Also, Cycles is great!
