The Beginning of An Epic Adventure!

If you’re Brand New to Blender and 3D Arts, This 8 Part Beginner Series Will Get You Up & Going!

Getting Started in Blender Part 1 - Installing Blender!

welcome to the very first step in your journey! In this tutorial we will be taking a look at the very first step we need to take…installing Blender! So let’s get right to it!

Getting Started in Blender Part 2 - Interface & Navigation

Interface and navigation…without these we won’t get very far in our work as it allows us to move around our 3D environment. In this tutorial we will take a look at panning, rotating, zooming a couple other options so that you can be a master navigator!

Getting Started in Blender Part 3 - Manipulating Objects

Manipulating objects is what allows for you to move, rotate and scale your 3D objects so that you may place them how you want and where you want. In this tutorial we’ll take a look at the ways we go about doing that 

Getting Started in Blender Part 4 - Modeling

Modeling is what allows for us to create our 3D scene by manipulating objects to look how we want them to look by changing, adding and manipulating its vertices, edges and faces

Getting Started in Blender Part 5 - Materials

Materials are what allow us to add color to our objects and also allow us to make them look like metal, clay, skin, etc. In this tutorial we will take a look at the different kinds of materials that we can create within Blender plus adding those materials to our scene! 

Getting Started in Blender Part 6 - Texturing

Texturing…the best way to add details. Texturing allows for us to, as we’ll take a look in this video, add images to our objects in order to give it details that you wouldn’t get from just adding basic colors to your objects. Here we will take a look at basic texturing!

Getting Started in Blender Part 7 - Lighting

Lighting, like in the real world allows for us to light our scene. Light adds shadows and details that are key to adding realism to your scene. Here we will take a look at all the different lamp types, their settings and more! 

Getting Started in Blender Part 9 - Animation

Animation…isn’t that why we get into 3D!? Animation is what brings life to our scene by allowing us to make our objects move across the 3D space. It’s fun and once you start, you’ll be animating everything!

Getting Started in Blender Part 9 - Rendering

Rendering allows for us to compose our scene into a final movie for us to watch, enjoy and share with others! Rendering is usually the last step in a 3D project that brings it to completion. So let’s complete it!
