More about this course

Welcome to Blender Masterclass - Learn Blender 2.8 in only 6 Hours!

Ever dreamed of being a 3D Artist but can't afford the very high prices of 3D applications? Well then it's time you take a look at Blender. Blender is 100% Free and Open Source which means it's being developed faster than any other 3D application currently out there. New features are being added all the time, and any existing bugs get fixed very quickly because of the nature of being Open Source.

Blender has completely redesigned it's interface, and I personally think it's one of the most practical and user friendly interfaces available.

This course consists of the following lessons:

The Blender Interface

3D Modeling Basics

Pivots and The 3D Cursor

Using a Reference Image for Modeling

Smooth Shading vs Flat Shading

Adding Lights To Your Scene

Using HDRI Environments

Modifiers Overview

Array Modifier

Mirror Modifier

Boolean Modifier

Solidify Modifier

Subdivision Surface Modifier

Proportional Editing

All About Collections

All About Parenting

Animation Keyframes and The Graph Editor

Materials Basics

UV Unwrapping

Material Node Editor

Volumetric Lighting And Fog

Ridged Body Simulations

Cloth Simulations

Camera Settings

Rendering Your Animation or Scene

BONUS Lesson - Basic Character Rigging

And of-course much more - in only 6 HOURS!!! 

Follow along and become the 3D artist you've always dreamt about.

Let me teach you how to use one of the most exciting 3D Applications out there!

See you in the first lesson!

The course project

For your Class Project I would like you to model something basic like a chair / desk / computer or something that is in your office / room. You can even add some animation if you want to, but a still image is perfectly fine. Submit your 3D render image / video to me and I will give you feedback. Have fun!
