  • Great Introduction to Sculpting in Blender

    Great introduction to sculpting in Blender for those of us who don’t have access to ZBrush! (Linux user here) As someone with zero prior artistic background, sculpting has always been the most intimidating part of 3D modeling for me, as it depends almost entirely on one’s art fundamentals. Which is why I think this course is great, as Henning doesn’t just teach the sculpting tools and hotkeys in Blender, but also goes through the basic principles and workflows in sculpting to create a appealing sculpt.

    Highly recommend the course for anyone looking to start learning sculpting in Blender.

  • Excellent Course

    This is, without a doubt, the best introduction and guide on sculpting in Blender. The thing that makes this course is that Henning covers the technique and art of sculpting, not just the tools. He teaches fundamentals that really will have an impact on the way you go about sculpting. Another really neat part is that all the videos are real-time, so you can easily follow along while he explains what he is doing. I really enjoyed it and I highly recommend.

  • Fantastic series of videos

    I recommend this to anyone that wants to get into 3D sculpting with Blender. Henning does a fine job explaining the basics of not only the tools, but the actual craft of sculpting. His experience and knowledge of industry techniques and standards is translated very well into this tool.
    Money well spent.
