Hey Reader,

Zach here, with another round of useful and inspiring CG and Blender related resources.

Takeout - Blender Short

William Landgren, a 14-year-old Blender artist, just keeps delivering amazing 3D animations, like his latest "Takeout" short, created in Blender.

He has an incredible attention to detail and created shots with very realistic lighting and materials. Reminds me a bit of Ian Hubert's style.

And did I mention that he is just 14 years old? 😋

Two new free Blender Add-ons from Adobe

SouthernShotty shows two cool new free Blender add-ons from Adobe on his YouTube channel.

Well, you might think that "Adobe" and "free" are two things that can't exist in the same world, but see for yourself. 😉

The first one is a Mixamo add-on, which makes working with imported Mixamo rigs and animations in Blender easier, and the second add-on allows you to use Substance 3D materials directly in Blender.

Download the Mixamo add-on here, and the Substance add-on here.
