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...
Time is something you cannot buy.
Investing in proper tools is beyond essential.
Such tools will not only save you a ton of time.
They will also help you in developing more efficient workflow.
HardOPS and Boxcutter are my most favourite Blender addons.
The speed and efficiency that I can achieve...
Stop with the excuses and start now!
Blender is easy to learn, especially if you follow our tutorials.
The main goal of Blender Bros is to help YOU get better at hard surface modeling, and Blender in general.
But wait! We go far beyond that!
Whether it is scifi design or rendering, post...
This might sound really weird, but high school was pretty transformative for me.
For most people, it was a period they'd much rather forget.
Being forced to sit and listen to stuff you don't care about for 8 hours per day - ugh. We'd much rather be working on something more productive!
Sometimes it's just fun to play around with random shapes in Blender.
It allows you to maintain and test your skills, improve your workflow, and create fun pieces to add to your collection.
I create several random shapes per week.
They might not have any particular function, but the important...
Back in 2020 we have created a free Topology Handbook for Blender.
Recently we have released a brand new version of it.
You can grab it for free in here:
Knowledge of topology is essential for polygon modeling, regardless of the software you are using.
I get a lot of questions about how I set up my Blender files.
My setup is actually incredibly simple - just a few addons and settings that I tweak.
In the video above, I'll show you my basic viewport setup, installed addons, and how I configure my Blender scene for an efficient hard surface...
Could you defuse a bomb?
Of course not!
Because you lack of knowledge on explosives.
Can you cut a wire?
Sure you can!
It is a simple task, right?
What does this have to do with modeling?
Well, think about it.
You may not be able to create a dream scifi environment...yet.
But, maybe you...
