Description

Learn how to create low-poly nature assets in the Blender software and create a beautiful campfire scene in the Unity software!

Learn how to use Blender and Unity together to create a beautiful campfire scene

  • Learn how to create low-poly nature assets in Blender, from scratch!
  • Learn how to create a nice looking terrain in Unity, from scratch!
  • Learn how to add your Blender models into Unity.
  • Create a beautiful sunset in Unity.
  • Create a transparent fire in Paint.NET for your campfire.


A fun and easy way for all skill levels to create a beautiful low-poly campfire scene

Whether you're a seasoned or new game designer or 3D modeler, this course will show you how to effectively model 3D low-poly nature assets for use in the Unity game engine. Blender and Unity are both very popular pieces of software, and many successful games have used both programs. Blender is fantastic for all skill levels, having a very intuitive interface and easy learning curve even if you're a beginner, while Unity provides all the tools necessary to create a beautiful low-poly campfire scene. This engaging and fun course will be satisfying, since you'll be able to create an entire scene in Unity from scratch simply using the tools that Blender and Unity provide to you.


Course Overview

This course will cover everything needed to create a low-poly campfire scene, from modeling the nature assets to putting the scene together. Whether you're a student new to Blender and/or Unity or a seasoned game designer or 3D modeler, this course will give you the knowledge needed to create a simple and beautiful scene in Unity from scratch.

You'll start by setting up your Unity scene and modeling your low-poly nature assets in the Blender software. Afterwards, you'll sort out some potential issues with your models in Unity. Finally, you'll create your terrain and use your nature assets to create a beautiful low-poly campfire scene. And perhaps best of all, this course is under 3 hours long, so you won't have to worry about spending days to create a simple little scene!

Who is the target audience?
  • Beginners in the Blender and Unity softwares should take this course.
  • Students who want to create a low-poly scene in Unity should take this course.
  • This course is NOT for students looking to create a realistic scene in Unity. This course covers the low-poly style.

Fixing Terrain Issues
2 Lectures 14:32

In this video, you'll fix some issues relating to asset placement on the terrain. You may try to place your Blender models onto the Unity terrain and they may appear partially under the terrain or the mouse cursor may not be on top of what you're dragging. This lecture will show you how to fix those issues.

Sharing my knowledge and constantly expanding it.

My name is Josh, I'm 19 years old, and I'm a hobbyist in both the Blender and Unity softwares. I'm a Computer Science major by day, and a Udemy instructor by night. Ever since my freshman year of high school, I have developed a passion for 3D modeling and game development after taking a drafting course. I have industry certification in the AutoCad software, but have since moved on and have been using both Blender and Unity for over four years. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, gaming, video editing, and programming. I hope that I can spread my knowledge of both the Blender and Unity softwares via my courses in both a fun and efficient manner.
