This course is a complete intro to Blender 2.8 for artists who want to use 3D as a tool for design and illustration. Each week we’ll learn a curated set of tools and put them into practice with a mini project. By the end you’ll have a wide range of portfolio pieces to show off, including juicy renders and short animations! The goal of the course is to give the student a strong foundation of tools to start creating confidently in 3D, including modelling, lighting, rendering, basic animation and camera work.
This is an intro level class. No prior 3D experience required.
The class meets weekly, Live via Skype
Skype ID: live:heavypoly
Each weekly live session is RECORDED for students to review.
We’ll be using Blender 2.8 and the new EEVEE real-time render engine. We will also use HEAVYPOLY config which is designed to make Blender easier to learn and faster for modelling.
