Description

Do you want a course designed to move you swiftly and easily into modelling techniques which will allow you to start building your own projects and developing your ideas by starting small? A chess set is the perfect way to meet this goal; you will learn how to model each individual piece using different techniques.

When you've finished, you'll have an image to show your friends of a chess-board telling a story of your own choosing!


Upon enrolment, you receive access to all reference photographs used in the course, completed (and some midway) assets, tutorials going through some of the basic elements of Blender, and a walk-through of a project - the chess board itself. So what are you waiting for? Join me and I'll help you get started...

Who this course is for:
  • Beginner students who wish to learn more about modelling options available to them within Blender.
