Jonathan Williamson is a 3D artist I become familiar with from his lessons on CG Cookie, which Mr. Williamson is a co-founder of. He is also a Blender Foundation Certified Trainer, meaning when it comes to modeling in Blender he knows a thing or two. Speaking of which, searching for Blender tutorials is what led me to find Jonathan Williamson in the first place. Anyway to see what he can do visit CGCookie to see his work and tutorials, or check him out on Twitter.
