This is the starting point for your journey as a 3D artist. After this video, you'll be able to make 3D models for both video games and image and 3D animation rendering. The 3D modeling process is pretty much the same for 3D printing and motion graphics as well. The main point is to master the fundamentals of 3D modeling well and that's why you're here!
2 hours of high quality content where we’ll go straight to the point. I’ve designed this course to teach you all the main features of 3D modeling as accurately as possible through a lot of repetition and with interesting modeling exercises. The difficulty level of the exercises increases as the course progresses. You don’t have to take a 20-hour course to learn something you can learn in just two hours!
The theoretical part of the course explains to you what 3D models consist of, how to start making them and when should you use low poly models instead of high poly models.
As you do the exercises in the course, you’ll learn the most essential functions of 3D modeling. We’ll also teach you a few modifiers which speed up the work of a 3D artist considerably. Towards the end of the course you’ll face two 3D modeling challenges.
