The first course we’d recommend is “Blender 3D: Your First 3D Character” by Remington Markham. This online course will get you started in learning the ropes of Blender in no time. As an experienced animator knowledgeable in 3D and 2D modeling, Remington will teach you how to get going. With his help, you will go through the entire workflow of Blender in order to design, create and texture your first character.
As for the instructor, Remington, he is a well-known face in the Blender community. He has a tens of thousands of follower on his YouTube channel, Instagram page, and he is currently working as creative director at mographmentor.com.
Now, let’s get back to the course.
Remington’s class will get you started on the most important basics of character creation from start to finish. The course will also show you how to create a rotating video of your designed character (you will love those rotating videos to show off your characters from every angle – be it for a slow-motion shot or a future 3D portfolio!)
This course clocks in at just about an hour – a very available course length to get going. At a steady 82% of reviewers either voting the course as having their expectations met or exceeded, this one is very much worth your time. And, as is the case with all the courses on this list, it can be taken for free.
Also, as it appear, the students who’ve taken this course agree. “Everything was perfect for me.
