      Excellent content like all ways, long live shrimp!

      Are you mad or what. Were you born with blender spoon in your mouth. Or you live not with food but blender.

      You are simply amazing.

    • Marcin Klapczynski

      Awesome, thank you Gleb for yet another set of great tips!
      Another way to create a turntable animation I often use is to create an empty inside an object of interest – name it something like CamRotate – then parent camera to the empty. You can now rotate the empty and the camera will move around the object.

      Answer to the question after Tip #21 Rotate edges by 45 degrees after triangulating – why are you adding this tip to every tutorial. I guess it’s because this procedure allows you to create a Licorice Australian Soft Black and maybe you’re a fan of them ;)))

      I just saw on Piotr Arłukowicz’ youtube channel that you’re coming to Gdańsk in December. I’m really happy that you’re visiting Poland! 🙂

      P.S. Best tip of the tutorial: Radial symmetry for sculpting

      in my scene i have grass field and a rock that is going to move and rotate around itself . I want the grass to bend and look natural when the rock is moving.
      i now it is possible with soft body and physics in blender but do not know how ?!
      please help me the master

      You are certainly humble and generous, or should it go generous and humble ? Thank You Very Much.

      say Gleb do you know why the add-on :
      ” space_view3d_panel_measure.py ” isn’t working in version 2.8 and + ?
