Guess what came in the mail the other day! An advanced copy of Mastering Blender 2nd Edition, by Tony Mullen. I was tech editor for this book, which involved a hefty update to Blender 2.6x’s updated interface, shortcuts and features.
Mastering Blender is a great kitchen sink book on Blender, covering everything beyond the beginning interface and controls. Modeling, particles, game engine, python, rendering, compositing, you name it. It’s a wonderful stocking stuffer for the blender nut in your life. Buy it from Amazon! And while you’re at it, check out Tony Mullen’s production blog for his short film Electric Town.
