    Once again, great job! Nice choice for your ordering of questions so that it flowed well together (and the last one was almost a request to leave feedback on the site). 🙂
    I can’t wait for the game tutorials.

    • Haha, you noticed that too! It was unintentional, but the questions flowed so well.

      • Uncle Snail

        Wow, I thought it was planned. 🙂

  2. Hey Gleb it’s great to see you talk about the blender game engine in your podcast although blender is not near as powerful as unreal 4 or Unity there a some really nice games coming out of the blender game making challenge and if I’m not mistaken the viewport projects going to be compatible with the blender game engine

  3. Lendel Fajardo

    I think this is the first podcast I’ve listened to here in your website and I’m definitely excited to see your game asset production workflows 😀

    Hi Gleb, awesome podcast and it’s great that you are answering all the questions. But I liked the audio only podcasts more. Nevertheless, keep up this good work.

    Hii i saw your website for the first time its different from the other especially the way u interact with the user Great Job Bro !!!!!!!!!!!,its my latest artwork your comment pls

    • Woah, well done Jai! To my eyes, the colors are appealing and the quality of visualization is good. I’m not sure whether we should try to improve the composition or not. But maybe consider adding the stronger point of interest (the cup? the chair? the papers? I don’t know).

      • Jai Ganesh

        i have added character in the scene how is thz ????

    Nothing fantastic but its worth sharing. It took me two days to complete this 🙂
    I went and found an image on the Cloud then used blender to try and recreate the elements with a somewhat different style. Comments?
