First off the Blender community is the best online community I’ve come across, though I’ve only been here a little while.
Anyway, I finally finished my first “real” render, based on BlenderCookie tutorial (though I changed some settings). Not nearly as polished as some of the great art I’ve seen here, but it’ll do. I plan on hanging it on my son’s wall.
Thanks for all the help everyone, thanks to my son for inspiration and to the Academy…er, Blender Foundation
