My first experience with Blender was in 2006. I downloaded it at 16, staring at the cool ponytailed mascot with the logo as it’s head, and confused at the basic idea of interacting with 3d objects.
Fast forward a few years, and I picked it back up at 2.79, right before the new 2.8 launch and EEVEE. I got lucky and had great timing!
The following images and gifs are the saved files from my first year of picking 3D art and blender back up.
