7 Tutorials that helped me learn Blender

Written By: Jahnu Best on September 18, 2011 One Comment

I just wanted to let you know, guys, that I learned how to use Blender pretty quickly.

In fact, in just a couple months, I was able to create pretty decent looking stuff.

However, I would’ve never done that if it weren’t for great tutorials to learn from. I just thought I’d share those tutorials I helped me enormously in learning Blender quickly. Check them out!

The Secret to Creating Realistic Grass

This was the first Blender tutorial I ever watched, and to be sure, I didn’t know what I was doing at the time. Watching this tutorial helped me immensely when it came to using Blender’s interface.

How to Make a Car Wheel

If it wasn’t for this Blender Guru tutorial, I might never have known how to model. This totally started my modeling part of Blender.

Creating a Wooden Barrel

In this Blender Cookie tutorial I first learned how to texture. In fact, this is where I learned to be very scared of UV Unwrapping. (Of course that fear went away gradually, but it still made no sense when I first watch UV Unwrapping here.)

Modeling a Porsche 911 GT3 RS — Part 1

For sure, this was a courageous tutorial for me to watch and attempt to do when I watched this. But this tutorial totally started my “advanced” modeling stuff.

How to Create Lightning in Blender

When it comes to compositing, this is where I started. Compositing seemed quite confusing — in fact it seemed like C++ programming, until I watched this. Then it all began to make sense.

Lighting tips from the Masters

Where did I learn to light my scenes? Right here.

You may have learned how to use Blender differently, but I thought I’d just share the main tutorials that taught me how to use Blender — and quickly.

    Agreed. I learned with the same tutorials. I still have a lot to learn, but those help me get to the point where I was proud of my work.
