It's only been 15 days since 2.67 was released and already there have been over 100 bug fixes in UI, viewport, animation, sequencer, composite/nodes, general rendering, cycles render, freestyle render, modifiers, tools, sculpting, game engine, particles and more. Seriously, are these guys for real? If you ran into any bugs with the last release, you can download 2.67a here. Full list of bug fixes after the break.
Unity Technologies has announced today that independent Unity developers will be able to deploy their games to Android and iOS platforms completely free of charge. Watch the (slightly awkward *whats up with the scripted words*) video of CEO David Helgason explaining this decision.
Check out these sculpts by Onur Can Cayli, for his story called Isteambul. Onur used ZBrush for detailing and sculpting, Maya and V-Ray for rendering, texture work with Mari and ZBrush. Onur is originally from Turkey, and currently working at Dreamworks Animation as a 3D modeler.
Looking forward to see this book when it's done. There certainly has been some impressive work created using Blender, but seeing them all at once would finally slam the door in the face of people who scoff at the credibility of Blender as a 3D application (and more). Anywhoo, the tentative price is $49.95, with 5% of each sale being donated to the Blender Foundation development fund. Deadline for submissions is July 15th, 2013!
Tinkercad allows you to quickly turn an idea into a CAD model for a 3D printer. This acquisition actually makes sense for Autodesk given their software portfolio. One can hope that with Autodesk's backing, we can all get onboard the 3D printing train...that is, hopefully that we can all afford 3D printers for home use, along with the assortment of materials that'll allow us to print to our heart's content. Until someone develops the replicator from Star Trek TNG. Side note: no mention of how much Autodesk bought Tinkercad for.
Artists, architects and designers always want their software to do more. More detail, more speed, more quality. With the announcement of V-Ray 1.6 for SketchUp Open Beta, users now have the biggest expansion to SketchUp’s rendering capabilities right at their fingertips. This massive upgrade to V-Ray for SketchUp includes a series of new feature introductions that enhance visualization workflow and render quality (V-Ray RT®, V-Ray Dome Light) and streamline scene complexity (V-Ray Proxy).
Jeremy Celeste was born in France, studied and graduated at ESMA Montpellier. He specializes in Lighting/Lookdev and has worked on film, commercial, and video games.

The guys behind CreatureBox (Dave Guertin, Greg Baldwin) have squeezed together 6 years of their work into an art book via a super successful Kickstarter campaign. They now have the remaining printed books for sale and basically it's going to be some time before they do a print like this again. There are printed and digital versions, so if you are looking for some great inspirational art, you should definitely check this out!
