Neil is a successful instructor with over 200,000 students cross-platform. His courses are among the highest-rated for 3D modelling on Udemy, with reviewer ratings at 4.7 or above. This includes a Udemy bestseller course.
Neil's courses are aimed at 3D modellers of all levels, with a great number of new tips and tricks for each learner. Each course is different, with most common themes including medieval England Tudor game assets and buildings, or sci-fi scenes and weapons. Neil's instructor style makes him stand out because of his to-the-point instructions and clear guidance.

This enables absolute beginners and mid-range learners to learn alongside one another, with nothing holding them back, and at different paces, chosen by each student.
Neil Bettison is a professional 3D artist with 9 years of modelling experience, including assets, characters, and environments. Neil initially got started with 3D modelling because of his passion for gaming. Some of his first models included creating assets for City Skylines workshop.
After attending the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) for a BA(Hons) Computer Games Arts degree, Neil began freelancing.
As a freelancer, Neil expanded his portfolio through work on historical assets and environment, working to sell these models alongside custom work requests. He is successful on social media and he quickly became a success on YouTube since launching his 3D Tudor channel in 2019. Neil's YouTube channel has become a go-to for all Blender students and hobbyists alike. Following his success on YouTube, Neil went on to create Blender courses on Udemy, aiming to synchronise them with his free YouTube content so that students can get the most out of learning.
Neil's 3D models are made using a combination of Blender, Maya, and ZBrush - depending on their specifications. Neil uses Blender for particle effects and complex asset animation. Neil can use two popular game engines, Unreal Engine 4 (UE4) and Unity, with many years of experience in using both. He is proficient in Photoshop and uses this tool for his textures and the original concept art he produces as part of his 3D model research workflow. Neil uses Substance Painter but also makes his own materials and textures using Substance Designer. Neil prefers using Topogun for retopology, specialising in optimising retopology for AAA assets.
Neil strives to continuously expand his library of courses over time, aiming to introduce learners to more software and tips and tricks over time. Together, the journey is just beginning!
