This course covers every important aspect of Blender 2.8, the most advanced version of Blender yet. Blender is a free, open source digital content creation application that allows artists to create amaing 3D models, animation, visual effects, product visualisations, motion graphics, 2D digital hand drawn animation and much, much more.
This couse will help you get familiar with Blender 2.8’s interfaces, from its various tool bars, editor windows, contextual menus and its modelling, lighting, texturing and rendering toolsets.
Using the provided scene files you will be able to follow along and quickly get to grips with concepts like data management, collections, scenes, view layers, linking and appending.
From there I’ll delve into some of the newer features of Blender 2.8. You will be able to use the ability to customise your workspace, create materials and shaders in the new Look Dev mode and render your scenes in real time usign the EEVEE engine. This will make creating your own scenes and rendering out a final image much easier and quicker than any other software available.
This is a constantly improving course, Projects will be added regularly and videos upload several times per month, projects include:
- A complete Title sequence, modelled, animated, textured, lit, rendered, compositing and edited all within Blender.
- Interior modelling, lighting, rendering and compositing
- Hard Surface modeling
- Procedural texturing and the Node Editor
- Creating a stylised, historical building using texture painting, sculpting and freeform render techniques and post-production.
I am always looking for suggestions from students for future projects, add ons and techniques that you want to be covered in this course. Feel free to message me anytime with your suggestions, feedback and questions.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone wishing to learn to create and texture 3d models
- Anyone wishing to learn the new version of Blender, Blender 2.80
