News & Features

If you’re interested in Blender, then make sure you pick up issue 55 of 3D Artist with its 25-page Blender special, out today.

Yes, this issue we’ve partnered with the Blender Foundation to bring your a bumper edition of 3D Artist filled with Blender content. To kick things off, check out this Blender tutorial on creating the awesome fighter jet featured on the cover. A big thanks to Ben Simonds of Gecko Animation for all his hard work!


If you’re interested about where Blender came from, where it is right now, and where it’s heading in the future, then you’ll want to check out this fantastic feature on the rise of the industry’s premier open source software.


Given that recent versions of Blender have been so focused on the visual effects side of the CG world, we got in touch with some of the biggest names on the Blender Network and asked them to offer 50 of their best tips for top VFX.


And as we gear up for the next generation of gaming, we talk to the artists on the front lines about what all the extra technological grunt really means for the developers.


There’s plenty of training content to keep you busy over the next few weeks too, with Andy Probst revealing his workflows for MODO 701‘s newly implemented particles…


Craig Barr talks retopology in Mudbox 2014


…and André Kutscherauer reveals his quick and simple stereographic pipeline in 3ds Max.


As ever, there’s plenty more content throughout the magazine to inform, entertain and inspire.
