We are ready to start gathering up tutorials, making of articles and images for Issue # 47 of Blenderart Magazine.
The theme for this issue is “What’s your Passion?”
Everyone has an area or topic that motivates them to try harder, work longer and push beyond their comfort zone. What is your singular creative joy? Is there an area of Blender you love to explore? A project you want to start and complete? Have you already completed an amazing new project this year? Any challenges you have started or completed? Any projects you completed or started last year that you want to explore further or have led you to new areas of exploration in your art? What drives your creativity?
What are you working on? We would love to hear about it and cheer you on. We are looking for articles on:
- Challenges (30 day, year long, organized or personal)
- New or on going projects
- Areas of Blender that you want to or are currently exploring

CGTrader has launched their newest contest. CG Environment Challenge.
Environment. What is the first thing that comes to your mind when reading this word? Rocks? Trees? Maybe your hometown? Dozens of different scenarios and all of them are the right ones, as we decided not to put any limits on this challenge!
So remove the imaginary boundaries, turn on your fantasy and create the environment that you are or would like to be surrounded by. Yes, it means that your models can be both realistic and imaginary, just keep in mind that the natural environment should dominate.
It doesn’t matter whether you are professional or just starting your path down the road to becoming a skilled 3D artist – surprise the judges with the originality of the model / rendering, artistic skills, or quality, and win great prizes that will help you create even more amazing models.
The best visionary proposals will receive awesome prizes: DOSCH 3D: Splash Effects packages by Dosch Design, Colimo and RealPerception licenses by Motiva CG, plugins of choice by R&D Group, courses of choice by 3D Buzz, subscriptions for three months by Digital Tutors, credits and promotional features by CGTrader.
Compel us by recreating nature or designing a completely different environment to what we are used to live in! We want to see it!
You should all know how these work, but in case you need to, all the rules and deadlines can be found here:
