Blenderman.org started as a personal hobby, and it grew way to big for that. In May I worked over 300 hours on just Blenderman… something no one can maintain.
Now we have a new version of Blenderman. This new version allows for other people to get involved, and without the expensive commercial software that the previous version of the website required. Thanks to PSB created by Manuel Bastioni (http://www.dedalo-3d.com/) and Paolo Columbo (http://www.blender3d.it/) Blenderman is now modular, more easily administrated, and scalable for future growth!
Thanks to AN][ARES who is now the new Model Administrator, the Model Archive will be back online in a new and improved version.
The “new” Blenderman also makes materials in non-English languages possible. If you are interested in translating articles and tutorials from English to another language, please let us know. We currently have German translation, but not for other languages.
The PDF magazine has had over 25,000 downloads each for the May and June issues. Past issues of the Blenderman Magazine are now back online. New versions of the magazine will be produced, but I can not give an exact date. There is still a lot of work that is needed to ensure that Blenderman, the Model Archive, and the Magazine stay alive. This includes significant work obtaining grants and sponsorship to cover the financial costs.
