Getting started with Blender

Learn Blender

Blender is an OpenSource software for 3D modeling and animation.

A couple of years ago when I first looked into it, it was still pretty buggy and hard to get a handle on for a beginner. Since then, it has really matured and is now quite incredible, and some of the tutorials for beginners are very clear and consise and make getting started very smooth and rewarding.

Happy New Year! + features

If you think about it, today is no different than any other day of the year. Sure, the calendar for the year 2013 ended, and when we write the date today it's a different year than it was yesterday. But our year might have just as well ended three weeks ago. Or six months ago. Or tomorrow. Nothing happened yesterday that was of any consequence. There was no cosmological event that switched the year. It's totally random.

And yet, there's something slightly magical about starting a new year. It's like starting a new diary, or going outside for the first time after a snowfall, when all you see outside is an untouched, glittering plain; and it will be your footsteps that make the first marks.

Happy New Year, and may it be the most wonderful yet!

Let's make a mark in this new, magical year with our art! :love:
