Learning Blender has been really rewarding. I'm still stumbling through tutorials and trying to put together my first very very crude animation but you very quickly feel the power to make something expressive and fulfilling, even if making it pretty takes a lot more learning.
I also feel really good about having an entry point into visual art at all. Drawing or painting or something are so hard to start learning, but the technical hurdles make the path here obvious.
God bless Free software.
Of course the victims and their loved ones are first in our minds, but also take care of yourselves out there, friends. Sending out love for those of us taking it hard...kyoani has put so much beauty and positivity into this world and an attack on the people who made that happen of this scale is overwhelming.
Lover of art and storytelling of all kinds. Let's find beauty everywhere we look :)
