Description

In this course, instructor Alan Thorn gives a comprehensive introduction to Blender for Game Artists. Here, Alan will show you how to get up and running in Blender for creating animated in-game models even if you’re a complete newbie! In the earlier volumes, you will be learning a range of topics that include: Blender (and 3d software) basics, primitive creation, 3D space coordinates, loading in reference material, and basic mesh manipulation. By the end of the course, you’ll start to feel like a game-art pro as you begin to learn and understand the concepts of UV unwrapping for textures, asset rigging for animation, animation creation, mesh exporting, and game integration as you add your asset to Unity! If you’ve ever wanted to learn 3d from the ground up with a completely free software, this course is for you!
