3D modeling = the #1 skill for a computer graphics artist 

Everything you need to start 3D modeling

Do you want to make games, animations, 3D prints, visual effects, or 3D illustrations?

Whatever your project is -- making shapes with points, lines, and faces is at the heart of the 3D modeling process.

This course is for you if you know the basics of Blender 3D -- and are now ready to dive deeper. 

What you'll learn

Together, we’ll cover all of the most used Blender tools and settings you will use for all of your next Blender 3D modeling projects.

But what's just as important -- I'll help you understand the fundamental ideas behind these tools and settings, so you’ll know exactly why you're using them and make smart workflow choices for all your projects.

Putting things into practice

You’ll be able to test your new skills with mini-projects, like creating a sci-fi crate. 

In the end, I've prepared an exercise for you. If you complete it, you will get personalized feedback so you can see how much you've improved.
