CG Masters provides training for all skill levels in Blender, but for your first look at the software and 3D animation in general, this is the best first stop to get the basics down!
Luca Scheller shows you how to create an awesome water shader in Cycles.
Thomas Cairns shows you how to add a layer of snow on tree branches.
Check out the final results for the tutorial contest for Blender 2.74
Naman Afle shows you how to create lots of different repeating patterns using the wireframe modifier.
Not sure what to consider when creating next gen assets? Guilherme takes you through his process on a gravestone asset from an upcoming game project.
Join our latest tutorial competition for Blender 2.74. The deadline for entries is April 27, 2015.
So here’s a quick and easy tutorial showing a way to emulate those crazy elaborate details that you find on some ornaments!!
In this tutorial series on creating a basketball in Blender we’ll be modeling, uv unwrapping, creating texture maps, and rendering in Cycles.
In the second part of this tutorial series we’ll be creating textures for our basketball and then rendering it in Cycles.
Uncover several techniques to make what could be a complicated chair modeling exercise a breeze.
Get deep into the real power available with Blender’s drivers using them to create a ladder procedurally. Gustav Nilsson takes you through how to then add properties and qualities that make posing the objects easy as pie!
Ways to think about the fundamentals of texturing to help recreate any texture. Applying these principals we’ll build a stone texture. Then quickly shade this using the previous cycles prime elements shader as a springboard.
In this tutorial I’ll share with you how to repeat an offset walk or run cycle in your scene and still have the ability to modify, layer on top of the base animation, and also completely edit any part of it later!
We review Gustav Nilsson’s training course on drivers in Blender. Drivers give you an incredible amount of control over objects and animations and Gustav tackles this complex topic and makes it easy to understand.
In this overview Chris Plush shows you some tips on prepping your 3d models in order to upload them to Shapeways.com for 3d printing.
Do you find that you create the same cycles shader setups again and again? Or perhaps you could do with a resource file to use as a starting point to build up some cool and complex shaders? If so, I’m hoping you’ll find this blend file of some use.
Here we’ll go over one way to help generate these sorts of cracks with worn edges, scratches and scuffs and give ourselves some versatility in the controls while we’re at it.
