Or you’re familiar with Blender but struggling with lighting, composition and making realistic environment objects? Perhaps you’re already an environment artist and you’re looking for more experience? This is the course for you!
Created using Blender 3.1 (and compatible with newer versions), the course starts out with the basics of the interface and goes on to build on your skills methodically. No previous experience with 3D modelling is required.
The course will show you how to create highly detailed, great looking environments for your portfolio. And how to turn your environment into an asset ready to be implemented into a video game engine like Unity or Unreal.
You’ll learn how to model a range of environment assets, building up to the comprehensive front cover image. We cover modelling, sculpting, texturing, lighting, rendering and many more core aspects needed for an environment artist.
The entire course is project-based, so you’ll apply your new skills immediately to real 3D models. All the project files are included, as well as additional references and resources - you'll never get stuck. We provide challenges and solutions at each step to make sure that you are learning-by-doing and not just watching someone else make art.
The assets you’ll make are game ready and modular, so you can build lots of different scenes by reusing the different pieces.
No matter what your background, your skills, or your interest, this course will give you a new set of skills that will make you a much more capable 3D Environment Artist.
You’ll get full lifetime access for a single one-off fee. The creators are qualified and experienced with modelling and coding, so are able to explain complex concepts clearly, as well as entertain along the way.

I started learning blender in the late 90’s and started using it for some motion graphics work for a small film company that I ran.
I went into teaching which was meant more as a backup option when the film work was not so regular. The teaching gradually took over and I have been teaching now for around 15 years. I moved into teaching games design 6 years ago which rekindled my excitement for 3D animation. I then started to find bits and pieces of freelance work and created my youtube channel Gabbitt Media.
Since then my channel has over 450,000 subscribers and I have worked on game models for the game Atlas Empires along with many other interesting projects from engineering to 3d printing.
