Creating 3D environments in Blender

After four years, the creating 3D environments course, is now finally here for Blender 2.81. Thousands of students participated in the first version of this course and there were a lot of requests for a follow-up course. Prepare for a new chapter in the world of 3D environments!

The profession continues

For centuries, making environments has been something that many artists do to impress other people. Since the advent of computer graphics there is a new wave of designers studying this lovely profession. This course reveals some fundamental lessons from the old painting masters. Use the course to get the max out Blender and learn to create high quality 3D environments.

Starting from scratch

The complexity of many scenes is often holding people back from creating environmental scenes in 3D. Most designers drop-out halfway and are then facing their unfinished work because it takes a lot of time and work to create scenes with architecture and nature. I faced this many times, but because I was so inspired by medieval architecture, I took the time to learn how to create 3D environments in a way in which I could express myself. During this process I struggled hard and made many unnecessary choices that slowed down my progression. The power of this course is that it shows you exactly what you need to design 3D environments and which details you might want to avoid or postpone in order to make the most out of your own progression.

The road to perfection

We all want to create beautiful scenes, but making these scenes can be a big challenge. This course is not only a technical education, it also covers topics like focus, inspiration and organization. I believe that a well-organized focused designer, with the right inspiration, will be able to make every 3D dream come to life. This course is well documented and guides you through the process of creating 3D scenes in Blender 2.81.

From ruin to castle

This course will guide you through the new Blender 2.81 interface. Together we make our first steps in Blender. Slowly we start building objects and after one chapter you will be able to make a small dice scene. This warming-up is needed to get used to the workflow and make you comfortable with Blender and the things that will come. Shortly after that, we will jump into the node editor. We will start mixing textures, just like the old painting masters, to get decent looking results. We will apply the material on a ruin and build the first environment scene. Then we will start building a farmhouse in a medieval style. We will use the workbench for modeling, Eevee for the texture work and Cycles to render the scenes to get the max out of it. After finishing the farmhouse, we merge the building with a nature environment. We will create the trees with the sapling add-on, so you will not need any external plugins. There is a full chapter about creating nature assets and in the final castle scene we will merge everything together to make a wonderful environmental scene. All content and textures come from Texture/HDRI Haven and are included in the course.

About me

My name is Rob Tuytel and I have been a environment designer for the past 13 years. I have a huge passion for the Dutch 17th century and mainly focus on medieval architecture. I run the platform Texture Haven together with Greg Zahl who also runs HDRI Haven. I recently completed my latest project Batavia 1627, a Realtime VR project for a Dutch museum. I love to study old environment paintings and use these as an inspiration for my work. You might know me from the Tears of Steel open Blender movie or from my previous environment course for Blender 2.79

Do you wish to create your own animated film one day? Or perhaps make your own game? But don't how to go about it or where to even start? If so, you may be looking around for cheap (and hopefully free) 3D software.

Blender is one such tool. It is a free, open-source 3D software that can do everything from 3D modeling, animation, rendering and game development. The tool continues to grow with newer and more awesome features being added every so often. Their current feature set is packed and rivals the most expensive 3D software today. One would have to see the awesome projects and quality renderings created by people who have not spent a cent.

In this course, you will learn the basics of (nearly) everything in Blender. Without needing to invest a whole lot of time or money, you will learn how to get started with 3D modeling, lighting, animation, sculpting, rendering, and physics to name a few with exercises spread throughout so that you can get your first experience with the software and gain overall confidence along the way. You will be one step closer to mastering Blender.

What's in this course?

The course is aimed to provide a gentle, yet thorough, introduction to Blender 3D so that you will go away with the confidence of working on your own dream projects. We won't just be looking at what each control does and call it done. The course provides a number of exercises (or mini-projects) on all the main components of 3D of which you are strongly encouraged to follow along and get your first experience with Blender. 

Specifically,

  • You will learn how to navigate through Blender and get comfortable with the user interface.
  • You will learn the bare basics of 3D modeling, lighting, animation, materials, texturing, rendering, sculpting, particles and physics.
  • You will work on small easy-to-follow exercises to help solidify your learning and gain your first experiences making something with Blender.
  • You can ask me for help anytime if you get stuck trying to do something.

By the end of this course, you will have completed your first few mini-projects with Blender. Since we cover nearly everything in Blender, this will raise your confidence

With over 60+ lectures, there is so much to learn. Don't let this overwhelm you though. The course is designed to make the learning curve as smooth and as easy as possible so that you don't have to pull out all your hair in frustration in an attempt to learn Blender on your own.

Who is this course for?

This will be perfect for the absolute beginner of Blender and the world of 3D in general. There are no nasty jargon anywhere in this course and everything will be explained in a simple easy-to-understand manner.

You are not expected to know anything about Blender. You can start this course with no prerequisites (as we'll cover how to download and install Blender). If there was one prerequisite, it would be to have some passion for 3D (or whichever project you would need Blender for). That motivation will help push you to master Blender so that your dream movie or game can come to life.

What is the expected outcome after the course?

By the end of the course, you can expect to have a good understanding of the major components of Blender. You will gain experience and hopefully confidence in being able to pull off your own 3D projects without having to pull out your hair in frustration.

After that, the outcomes are endless. As you continue to work on your projects, you start to gain confidence in learning more advanced stuff. At this stage, making movies and/or game projects becomes a thing of reality. You could even meet one of the requirements for a Blender-related job!

Best of all, the course is designed to be flexible and will continue to expand as new features get added in or if you feel that I haven't covered an aspect that you would like to learn.

In this course we create a simple character in 3D. We quickly and easily apply a rig for easy animation.

We begin by setting up some background images to use as a reference.

This course involves modelling the character from a simple plane so we use the mirror modifier to speed the process up.

We quickly get the form of the character and add his hands, form his ears, model some teeth and even model him a pair of simple shoes. We continue by creating some hair and forming eye brows.

When we are happy with how our character looks we move on and add an armature using an add-on within blender. We position the rig and generate control bones for use in animating our character. We briefly look at weight painting and how much influence some bones have over certain parts of the character.

Combat Knife 3D Game Asset in Blender and Substance Painter

Students: 18465, Price:  Free

In this absolutely free step-by-step Blender and Substance Painter training course I'll take you through the entire process of modeling and texturing a combat knife game asset.

This game development course is beginner friendly but you should have some very basic knowledge of Blender before watching. This course will teach you a lot of different hard surface modeling techniques and modeling tools including beveling, subsurf modeling, and non-destructive modifier methods. It'll take you from setting up a reference photo in the background to completing a high quality, high resolution, 3d knife model for games.

The course starts off by taking you through creating the high-poly model of the knife that we'll later use for baking normal maps onto a low-poly, game-ready model.

To prepare our model for texturing I'll walk you through taking our low-poly knife model and UV unwrapping it in Blender. You'll learn how to specify how objects are unwrapped by manually adding seams to edges, how to modify and work with UVs, and how to look for UV stretching to make sure your textures will be applied without distortion.

After we're done UV unwrapping, I'll show you how to bake a normal map for the knife using Blender in order to make our efficient low-poly knife look more detailed and high resolution. Whether you want to use this knife inside Blender or export it for a game engine like Unity or Unreal, I'll show you how to make sure your model and its normal map look right in all software.

Then finally we'll pull our knife model into Substance Painter and Texture it. I'll show you how to bake normal maps in Substance Painter too, as they tend to come out a little bit better than in Blender. So then you'll know how baking works in both software. We'll use edge wear generators, smart materials, and other tools in Substance Painter to achieve the final look, and then I'll show you how to render your final knife in Substance Painter. I'll also show you how to export your textures and then set up a material for your knife in Blender as well so we can render it with Cycles.

This is the age of information. There are a lot of videos online about learning the basics of Blender. But I discovered over the years that most of them preach about tips and tricks to make a very specific object or item. 3D modelling is a trial and error process. One should be aware of not just how to operate the software but also about how to approach an unknown situation. This is what I mean when I say "intuitiveness". One must experience different kind of challenges in order to develop that intuitiveness.

I used to learn about 3D modelling from books and though it took a long time to learn from them, I learnt that in the long term it was better than do it quickly videos. The differences was the richness of the content in books. Now in this course, I have tried to develop not just your 3D skills but also your ability to develop approaches for different kind of scenarios, which makes it a lot richer than the traditional set of how to videos.

In this course,  we will go through

- Basic functions in Blender and the user interface

-The process of blocking everything with basic shapes.

-Then we will model different kind of meshes in edit mode.

- Then we will learn how to make different kind of materials and compare them with one another

- We will also learn how to map and mask different textures into one another

- We will learn the basics of using modifiers

-Then there is the final project in which all the skills learnt will be tested

- And ultimately there is the Ultimate beginners challenge that requires a lot of creative thinking to solve

So if you pass the ultimate challenge by yourself, you are already pretty good at this and you should continue in the field.

Nonetheless I hope you enjoy this course. I will keep uploading new videos as and when required.

In this course we’ll create a game character using Blender 2.8, and we'll export it to Unity and configure it so we can control it in the game engine.

Throughout the course, you will learn:

  • 3D Modeling in Blender 2.8

  • UV Mapping

  • Texturing and Sculpting

  • Baking a Normal Map

  • Rigging a Character in Blender 2.8

  • Animating a 2D Face with Grease Pencil

  • Creating Animation Cycles for a Video Game

  • Exporting a Character and Animations from Blender 2.8 to Unity

  • Creating a C# Script in Unity to Control a Game Character

Beginning with the modeling, we’ll use Blender 2.8 to build all the individual pieces of a Lego character. And then you’ll learn how to UV map each of the parts, and then create an efficient, unified UV map of the entire character. We will use Blender’s texture painting tools to create the clothes of the character, and we’ll use the sculpt tools to create the high res details of the hair. You’ll then learn how to bake a normal map in Blender and apply the textures to the character model.

Next, we’ll work on rigging the character. We will begin with a single bone, and create the rig manually, so you can see how a character rig is built from the ground up. You’ll learn how to create a Foot Roll Rig and how to use Blender 2.8’s new process for creating Custom Shapes to control the character.

Once the rig is done, I’ll show you a cool technique, using Blender 2.8’s new Grease Pencil tools, to animate both a 2D drawn face and a 3D body at the same time. With this technique, we will create the character’s Idle, Run, and Jump animations, ready to be used in a game engine.

You will then learn how to export the character, animations, and textures out of Blender and bring them into the Unity game engine. And here you will learn how to set-up the character in the game and even how to retarget third-party animations onto our character, using Unity’s Humanoid Rig system.

Finally, we will write a simple C# script to incorporate our 2D and 3D animations, and get the character running around the level.

If you’ve ever wanted to create a game character, and are interested in getting up to speed in Blender 2.8, then this course is for you. So join me as we create a game character in Blender 2.8.

Welcome to the course architectural design and animation in blender. In this course you'll be learning how to layout the design and create photo realistic animations of this modern house. This is a great skill to have especially for 3D artists creating their own works and those who want to create architectural structures and models.   

We begin by laying out the 2D floor plan, an essential step for those looking to control the design aspect of their projects. 

The next step is to take the floor plan and begin the 3D modelling part of this project. This step includes the Archipack add-on that assists in the creation of walls, doors and windows to quickly assemble the structure. Once the structure is in place we will add a high dynamic range image to help light the scene. This lighting will help us achieve real world lighting conditions to view our material.

This leads us into materials and textures where you will learn to use Blenders PBR material shader to create a realistic looking 3D model. This is really important skill to have when creating architectural scenes in Blender.

We look at more advanced techniques including creating grass using the particle system and creating trees using the sapling add-on. 

We complete this section by rendering out a photo realistic image.

The next stage is the fun part where we prepare the model for animation. We make the house appear slowly using boolean modifiers and I will show you a great feature for quickly previewing how the animation looks before a full render. 

Finally we use render layers to speed up rendering and take a look at the compositor in Blender to put the elements back together.

Corazon Bryant always had an artistic bone in her body. When she was only 2 years old, she would make detailed drawings on her mother's wall. Her mother loved the drawings so much, she decided to keep them. With the encouragement of her mother, she continued drawing and she only got better as time went by. When Corazon was in middle and high school, she earned money making portraits for her classmates and even for her teachers. She pursued a college degree in Media Arts & Animation and later worked for architectural and entertainment companies such as Camm Productions, ID DI Design, and PDT International. She also had an opportunity to do some freelance work for Mega Pickle Entertainment. While working as a 3D artist, she had a chance to teach 3D animation classes in an A+ school. This is when she found her true love - which is not only to talk about 3D endlessly but to also inspire greatness in young upcoming artists. Corazon is currently working on a new project called Victory 3D with fellow industry-experienced artists to provide an affordable and effective learning system that will make it easier for students to get a job in the 3D industry.

Course Info

In this course, I will teach you the complete process of creating a professional full body character that is ready for movies or for game cinematics.

We will begin by sculpting our character from scratch using a sphere. We will use a variety of Blender sculpting tools such as the Clay Strips brush, the Grab brush, Draw Sharp, Scrape, masking and many more. Once we have our primary forms down for our character, we will move on to retopologizing so we can get a clean mesh that will allow us to add more secondary and micro skin and cloth details. I will show you the correct way to create a nice topology for your character so it can be fully ready for production. We will dive into unwrapping our character, optimizing and organizing our UVs so we can get the most out of it for better higher quality resolution textures. With Blender’s built-in paint mode, we will hand paint our character’s skin and clothing from scratch. I will show you how to create textures and materials to achieve realistic looking eyes, fabric, leather, and metal. We will go through the baking process to create our normal maps for our character. To make realistic hair, we will use Blender’s particle system. I will show you the proper method of styling hair so you will have full control and produce the type of hair style that you really want.

We will also go to the steps of modeling a detailed medallion and an amazing looking sword that will serve as a prop for our character. Last you will light and render a beautiful image that you can use to boost your portfolio.

This course is for intermediate artists so before you dive into this, make sure that you have at least a basic understanding of Blender.

If you are looking to create a character that is 100% made in Blender, then this course is for you. You will learn sculpting, 3d modeling, unwrapping, texturing, baking, lighting, rendering, and compositing all just using one single outstanding program.

This is a massive course about Materials in Blender. It will guide you from the beginning where you literally know nothing until you reach a level where people envy your knowledge about material. The course touches all aspects around Material and have tons of examples that you will be able to use in your daily work even after you have ended the course.

I will not go through just how you do stuff, but also why and all the terms used. As an example, of many in the course, we build a glass material from scratch that will have both refraction, caustics and all the other complex stuff you have in glass, but will be both faster to render and with less noise compared to Blenders original way to do caustics and glass together.

I also go through different techniques on how to apply material so you get a good grip on how to use UV, apply decals and so on...so it's not "just" procedural even if you will get a lot of that as well. In short...I will cover all you ever will need to know about how to start and understand how material works in Blender.

It's concentrated to the engine Cycles, since Eevee still lacks a few features but most of what you learn, you can do in both engines.
