PD Pro Howler
says "woof!" to Blender!

Whiskey Oscar Oscar Foxtrot!!!
Blender is an amazing, complete and powerful 3D program for modeling, animation, rendering and game creation too. Plus it now also has full 2D animation, sculpting and lots more.

Hot! You can export to Wavefront OBJ with PBR materials which can be rendered in the new PD Howler 2024

It is Open Source, free and very surprisingly rich in features and in many other ways than just for 3D. If you're an artist looking for an affordable 3D program, Blender is free, so that won't hurt your wallet, and it will probably let you do just about anything and everything you want to do in 3D. If you have trouble with its interface, we'd like to also recommend Carrara

Here are a few quick links to the world of Blender as we've seen it.

- created by Gleb Alexandrov. Tutorials, sample artwork, some thoughts on life, art, and life as an artist.
- Dan Ritchie, creator of Project Dogwaffle, explores and discusses tools and features of interest in making custom animated brushes and lots more. Interesting stuff, coming from a hard-core Lightwave3D user :-)
