Completely Free Blender 3D course

Hi all, I am going to list here all the videos of the free blender 3D course I have created. It was originally a commercial DVD but hey, enjoy!

For those who dont know, blender 3d can be used to create 3D Animations and images, more details and the place to obtain this free program here http://www.blender.org/

The first 7 parts introduce Blender 3D and get you up to speed with the interface.

The next group of parts take you through the modelling and rigging of a simple character. You will cover mirror modelling, creating bones, skinning, actions, non linear animation, shape keys; (Morph targets). And finally you will use these skills for to make a simple animation. Dont be put of by the simple nature of the character, all the skills you learn will scale up to future more complex projects. With Blender 3d the sky really is the limit.

Hey, nice job! I'll be adding these to the Blender Multimedia Lounge at the BlenderNewbies Forums. I'll be sure to provide a link back to your site, too.

Thanks.

Roy The Artist said...

Thanks guys, I will add links and blender resources as well...
Nathan, you may want to see if all the stuff I post is relevant on the feed, as some of it will be related to traditional art. I have found, though, that Blender artists are usually interested in other mediums as well.

Gerrit said...

Thanks for creating these videos. I hadn't been having much luck with blender until I went through your tutorials. In an afternoon I'm pretty well up to speed now. Thanks again!

Leaston said...

Dear Roy,

Many thanks for taking so much time and putting the enormous effort into creating the tutorials. I've toyed with Blender before and always given up due to the steep learning curve. You've helped me get past that.

I'm also a frustrated artist and have always wanted to be able to paint or draw. After seeing your watercolour tutorials, I'm now wondering if I could do this too! You are certainly an inspiration.

Thank you.

Regards,
LH
