I'll be the first to admit that winter is not my favorite season, but there is something mesmerizing about watching snow gently fall. The software fluffy look as it piles up here and there. Then there are the lovely shades of blue that seem to paint winter landscapes in enchanting hues of winter chill.
The almost magical look of icicles hanging in uneven rows along rooftops.
But all that aside, this particular winter has been filled with some exciting activities on the Blender front. We have seen the release of Blender 2.50 Alpha 0, an event that has
the whole community buzzing in excite-ment of new discovery and learning. Project Durian is going full steam ahead and the updates on their blog are full of new discov-eries and excitement as well.
Now if only it wasn't so cold and wet, it would be a perfect season...
But even though winter is entirely too cold, it is filled with a number of fun activities as well as some rather popular holidays. And we have a couple of great tutorials to add to your holiday cheer and preparations, as well as a beautiful winter scene that captures the magic of winter chill.
So grab a cup of hot cocoa and a candy cane or two and settle in for a good read.
