( With the huge update of Blender with the release of 2.8 I have decided to make this course free. Because of this, there will no longer be student support. I hope it will be of some use to you anyway. Not everything is outdated in this course.)

This course explores my process behind creating re-usable tiled textures and using them as stencils inside of Blender. This is not a step-by-step instruction. I show you the tools and give you my ideas behind my decisions. The lectures are short and to the point. You should have an understanding of how to use blender before starting this course.

I worked in Utah's game industry for 5 years before going indie. I decided to go indie and turn to making educational content for people. My college experience wasn't amazing, so I aim to give people the condensed version of the years of research, and trial and error that I went through into a comprehensive lesson.

 Working on my 3rd indie game release for mobile.

I also teach college and high school students using the methods in this course.

I collect toys, play music and I'm obsessed with 3D creation/Blender.
