  • Lightsaber build

    Just started learning Blender having never had any experience of 3d modelling at all and this tutorial was brilliant. Clear, concise and as in-depth as needed to be. Highly recommended.

  • The best beginner tutorial on blender!

    I have only been learning blender for a month or so and have been jumping between lots of tutorials on youtube. It is actually pretty difficult to find a decent tutorial taught by an ‘Industry Professional’ and this one is taught by two instructors.

    This tutorial should be the starting point for all blender beginners. The two instructors obviously know what they are doing. They start with an overview of blender and are continuously discussing ‘best practices’ as they go through the course.

    There are tons of ways to accomplish the same goal in blender (or any 3d software) but the goal for an aspiring 3d artist should be to learn the ‘best practices’ and this course gives you exactly that.
    I really hope Henning & Morten create some more Blender content.
