Man… I get this question a lot.
“Should I learn Blender foundations first?”
Or: “When should I use addons?”
And do you know what think about it?
It doesn’t bloody matter.
Now, most people would disagree with me.
And, again, it doesn’t bloody matter.
What do you mean you tried?
A child tries. A man succeeds.
What if I told you there is a great way to learn faster?
In fact it's the best way to get better an anything in life.
Did you guess what it is?
That's right, it's practice!
It is not good enough...
Don’t tell me you’re not concerned. Every single artist out there is worried. And for a good reason! But is that fear justified? Also, where are we headed? Real-life Matrix? Possibly. Or possibly not. You do realise it is up to us how it all ends. Yes, you included.
Today we will dive into a practical and realistic scifi design tutorial for hard surface in Blender. We will go through the entire process from a cube to an awesome scifi scope design.
However, before we begin, let's talk about something really important, something that most Blender beginners...
If you're interested in learning how to design a hard surface object like a gun or cannon in Blender, here are a few tips that we can give you. We will also follow up with a scifi cannon tutorial where I will show you essential steps and techniques for creating a scifi cannon from scratch in...
It took me 20 years of failing to get to where I am now.
I studied hard and worked hard but it wasn't really happening.
Despite all that I remained true to one fundamental element of success.
Do you know what I am talking about?
One word: persistence.
I never gave up.
I always believed.
Yes, there is ONE WAY way to get better at Blender.
Come to think of that, it is the only way to get better at anything.
And guess what, there is no such thing as too much practice.
Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced, we all need more of it.
This blog post is important, so I'll get right to the point:
Starting on Tuesday, November 22 we will begin our yearly Black Friday sale for all Blender Bros products & courses.
I know you'll be receiving a lot of emails from all sorts of different sources during this week, so...
Mechs are the truth.
They are like a holy grail of scifi.
But designing one can seem overwhelming.
Mostly due to the complexity of the form.
Mechs can also take loads of time to model.
But there is an easy way to learn how to design badass mechs.
Well, start with simple shapes and smaller bits....
After 3 years, it finally returned...
Ever since the whole pandemic began, I was looking forward to the next time Blender Conference would be hosted.
It was cancelled in 2020 and 2021, and finally came back for 2022. Three whole years passed - just like that!
But the experience was truly...
The Topology Wars rage on.
"Quads are the only truth!"
"Ngons are evil!"
If you think that way here is what I think you should do.
Build yourself a bridge and get over it.
Topology needs to follow a purpose.
If your project requires to go quads, then go quads.
If it does not, then stop wasting...
They look awesome, right?
But how to create them!
Supple curves mixed with hard angles can be a superb combo.
It is a great way to spice up your folio and hone your hard surface skills.
All in one go!
They look cool.
Seem to be fun to model.
But how easy are they really to make?
Well, here is your...
