I’ve been so silent the last year (or two =/) on these forums, but I’ve made sure to check here at least a couple of times a week and see the amazing renders and animations blender users are creating.
The last year has kept me busy working on Project Durian , and for 2 years before that I was working at a Videogame Company (using mostly may and max ), but used Blender as much as I could in my spare time still.
This is just a very small selection of work I’d done in 2008 and early 2009. The star wars stuff is maya/max animated but everything else is Blender! . In one week Durian production ends, so time to make a new reel soon
Learning with Blender (the only 3d program I could afford when I wanted to do 3D) and building my skills from sharing work, and gaining feedback from this wonderful community has allowed me to turn my favorite hobby into a job. So I really want to say thank you to everyone here. Keep sharing work and posting constructive feedback to others!
