Switching To Blender For Game Artists

by FastTrackStudios in Training

Switching to Blender for game artists

Learn how to quickly get started with using Blender when you already have basic experience in any other 3d modeling package like Maya or 3DS Max.


This course will be a bit different from most of our courses.
In this course, we will focus on how to switch to Blender for game artist from any other 3d software like Maya or 3ds max.
Now the reason I say for game artists is that I will mostly be focused on the modeling and texturing side of Blender. This means we will not be covering things like animation, rendering, or simulations.

You can also use this course as an introduction course to Blender, however, please note that things might go a bit to fast for complete beginners who do not yet have any experience in 3D Modeling.

This tutorial comes in 2 parts, The first part will be a collection of short easy to understand chapters that will just cover individual tools. I consider this the learning part of the course.
In the second part, we will take everything we have learned and combine it all together to create a quick model of some gears.

4.5 HOURS!

This course contains 4.5 hours of content – You can follow along with every single step – The course does enclose one small timelapse, this is just to speed up a very repetitive task, the rest is done in real-time. However, we have also included the time-lapsed footage in real-time without narration.


This game art tutorial is perfect for students who have some familiarity with a 3d Modeling tool like Maya or 3DS Max and want to learn Blender – Everything in this tutorial will be explained in detail.
