Huzzah, thanks for posting this, I can't wait to watch it when I'm not at the office.  Been wanting to mess with A) 3D more, B) Try my hand at Low-Poly, and C) Give Blender a try.  This looks perfect for getting me to do all 3 :D

They change things around way to often! Hopefully it won't be anything major, it's usualy small changes to the GUI.

These look great! I always get freaked out by blender and its crazy right click selection/3D cursor... I use Wings3D normally.

Some hints to new users of blender that are super useful are - (with the ever annoying 3D cursor), you can re-centre this by pushing shift-C (re-centre's to selected object + view) or (if you have multiple objects) you can push A (to deselect) tab (to get out of edit) and select your object and use shift-S<center to selection.

As far as navigation goes - C is the shortcut to center view on cursor. So if you find your view rotating in a really weird way, you can fix this by centering the 3D cursor to your object - the pushing C... then it rotates much more nicely.

Anyway - I'll get back to playing with this. I'm using an older version of blender anyway (2.46) so all the stuff is the same for me :b: Thanks for what seem like a great little series of tut's so far.
