Blenderart Magazine #7 now available

Welcome to Issue #7, Blender Materials.

We have come full circle and are proud to present our 1st Anniversary issue of Blenderart Magazine. We have worked hard this year to bring you the best of our community’s talent and knowledge.

In this issue we have focused on using blender materials with several tutorials on the Node (Noodles) system; as well as a very comprehensive tutorial on creating realistic game environments. We also take a look at what makes a material, how to create lightning bolts and available educational resources.

In an effort to keep the file size of the magazine smaller, we have made the blend files used in this issue a separate zip file for those who wish to download it.

Also be sure to check out our gallery of wonderful images submitted by very talented members of our community.
