Beginners Guide: Model A Low-Poly Sword And Environment

by Harry Helps in Training


Hi, my name is Harry and I’m a professional 3d artist with over a decade of experience. I’ve worked most recently as the Studio Director of an award winning architectural visualization studio.

In this class, I’ll walk you through the simple and beginner friendly process of creating a low-poly fantasy sword and environment in Blender.

We’ll be going through the entire process of creating this low-poly fantasy scene from a beginner’s perspective to avoid as much confusion as possible. That means I won’t be skipping any steps or going too fast for you to keep up with me.

This class is meant for complete beginners to Blender. No experience in Blender (or 3d modeling in general) is needed to follow along, though it certainly wouldn't hurt! The included "Blender Crash Course" lessons will teach you everything you need to know to get started with the rest of the class.

In this class you'll learn:
  • Blender Interface and Tools: We’ll learn about the many basic tools and interface elements within Blender while creating our low-poly scene.
  • Modeling: To create our sword and environment, we’ll use basic modeling tools and modifiers such as Bevel.
  • Lighting: We’ll set up a dynamic lighting scheme to highlight our low-poly sword and tell a story.
  • Shading: I’ll show you how to make metal, stylized rock and more as we add color to our environment.
  • Rendering: Lastly, we’ll render and composite our final image in Blender so you can share it with your friends and family on social media.

You'll create:

  • An awesome render of a stylized low-poly sword and environment from scratch!
