Blender Beginners Tutorial – Part 3 – Your First Model

posted in: Blender | 0

In this video we’re going to show you a few more tools to improve your modeling by using what you already know and adding a few more things on top to model something real. We’re going to do so by building a simple model: a soda can. While it’s not that complex, a can, with all its details, will show you the basic techniques that we use all the time when modeling in 3D. While creating our soda can, we’ll cover a few new tools and techniques and talk more about lighting and introduce you to materials. This tutorial will bring together everything you’ve learned in our previous tutorials and provide you with a real model in the end. In addition to that, you may just feel comfortable enough to head out on your own and model something you’ve been wanting to model.
