I'm RealizedPotential. Host and creator of the YouTube channel RealizedPotential, where I upload various videos, mostly blender related art, tutorials, and test. So far, I haven’t uploading any tutorials on modeling. I don't really do much modeling so I don't really consider myself to be that good at it yet.
None the less, I started this project. It took more than 2 months of my spare time to get to this point. It was great practice and overall I’m happy with the way it turned out.
The Ideal behind the project actually came about when I was thinking about possible solutions to a problem. Blender 2.5 and greater won’t work on my Raspberry Pi (a cheap and low power credit card sized computer) or my very old Window XP laptop. I think the problem has to do with the way the newer versions of blender renders its interface. So I wondered… what if blender’s interface was rendered by blender instead of OpenGL. I think the answer is that blender the cycles render engine on the Raspberry Pi would be painfully slow. But still, I wondered what the interface would look like in 3D. This project is the result of that curiosity.
I wanted to sell this model on the BlenderMarket for about $30 but my application to become a vendor has been rejected because of a poor portfolio. Like I said, I don’t really do much modeling. The model can now be purchased here. I decided to go with a flexible payment option so you can pay whatever you think its worth. There are always those who are unwilling to pay for anything blender related. If that is the case, It will also be available for free.
Blender is GPL and techniquely this work is a derivative of blender so it is also offered under the same license. I don't require any attribution although that would be nice. I do ask that you don't just resale the model. It would be great if you soled work based on the model. I would love to see this on a magazine cover or book. Or use it as an intro to a blender video tutorial. These are just some ideas. Happy blending!!!
Here are some screen shots to show detail and perspective. Feel free to use them as well under the same terms, maybe as a desktop wallpaper.
