Did you like my Animation Nodes tutorial?, definitelly check out Jimmy Gunawan’s site, It’s filled with experiments on Animation Nodes and also in general on his transition from other sofware to blender.

One great thing I’ve found while reading his posts is that he is very thorough and he not only posts one way to do stuff but many of his discoveries have 2 or 3 approaches to solve the same problem which is great to learn the inner workings of any piece of sofware.

So go ahead and check it out!

Hey again guys!, check out the new and revamped BlendTuts website, Oliver Villar is going on full throttle with his website now, and it looks great.

I had the chance to work with him in Luke’s Escape for almost a year (we’re still in it together), and he’s a great artist when it comes to modeling, shading and lighting, and he’s also a great teacher.

He gave me a copy of his book about a year ago “Learning Blender: A Hands-On Guide to Creating 3D Animated Characters”, which I like a lot, because it takes you through the whole process of creating an animation piece, mostly focusing on modeling, texturing, shading and lighting, but also has some rigging and animation, even though I believe he should have chosen an other character for it, it’s still a great read.

He’s also making a podcast with focus on topics for beginners, so if you’re a newcomer, definitelly hear him out.
