Are you interested in learning about Blender, a free and powerful 3D modeling program? Whether you're a complete beginner or an experienced Blender user, the Absolute Beginners 3D Character in Blender course can offer something for you. In this course, we will create a cute character designed by Deema Egorov. My name is Niko, and I will guide you through the process of creating a 3D character in Blender from scratch, rigging, posing, and presenting it. We will also create props to practice hard surface modeling in Blender, with an emphasis on digital sculpting.
Throughout the course, we will cover essential Blender topics for beginners and quickly move on to sculpting a human head. Then, we will create our mouse hero from the head and proceed to make the body, hands, and fingers. We will also make a sweater and manually retopologize the head of our character. Additionally, we will learn about lights, cameras, and environment textures, and I will show you how to create a cleaver weapon using hard surface techniques.
We will cover hair and fur making, bone and rigging, and posing the character for animation. Finally, we will learn how to make a transparent background and floor shadows and create a turntable animation to showcase our 3D character from all angles.
No previous experience with any 3D software is required for this course. However, if you enjoy drawing, it's a plus. Blender is a versatile program that can meet all your 3D modeling needs, and in this course, we will create a high-poly character for your portfolio. So, if you're interested in starting your 3D character career, let's dive into the world of 3D character creation in Blender together.
