"This course helped me taking a few giant steps in mastering Blender. Lots of information about textures, materials, displacement, and a very good introduction to the power of the Grease Pencil. Well done!"

- Martin Pennings

Welcome to the brand new Blender 2.8 and it's stunning Eevee rendering engine. There’s never been a better time to start creating amazing 3D environments and preview them in real time!

This course is continually updated in response to student suggestions and feedback. If you would like to see something else relevant in the course just let us know.

Whether you’re an absolute beginner, or someone with years of artistic experience, Blender has everything you need to do the following...

  • Create assets for video games.
  • Make unique environment props.
  • Become an experienced world creator.
  • Express yourself through 3D artwork.

Blender is completely free to use and allows you to export your creations into any game engine, including Unity and Unreal.

This course starts simple, so no previous experience with 3D modelling is required. We cover modelling, texturing, lighting, layout, and many more core aspects needed for an environment artist. With our online tutorials, you'll be amazed what you can achieve.

Michael Bridges is an experienced 3D artist who has taught more than 100,000 students how to create 3D artwork.

The entire course is project-based, so you will apply your new skills immediately to real 3D models. All the project files will be included, as well as additional references and resources - you'll never get stuck. We provide challenges and solutions at each step to make sure that you are learning-by-doing and not just watching someone else make art.

For each model you build you will follow this process…

  • Be challenged to build the entire model yourself.
  • Be shown step-by step how to build it.
  • Apply your knowledge regularly.
  • Encouraged and Supported throughout your journey

You will get full lifetime access for a single one-off cost for the course. The creators are qualified and experienced with modelling and coding, so are able to explain complex concepts clearly, as well as entertain along the way. By the end of the course you'll be very confident in not just the basics of Blender, but also how to master the software. You'll be able to mock up environments quickly including lighting and textures and go on to create your own textures as well!

No matter what your background, your skills, or your interest, this course will give you a new set of skills that that will make you a much more capable 3D Environment Artist.

Note: access to this course comes with an optional, free community site where you can share games and 3D models, as well as connect with thousands other students.

Dive in now, you won't be disappointed!

Michael has been playing with technology ever since he could get my hands on it.

As a child he happily dissembled his father's VCR (you remember those, right?) His dad wasn't happy, but Michael soon learnt to put things together again so that they worked too!

He's been playing with CGI ever since Paint Deluxe on the Amiga 500 in the 80's, through to the likes of Blender and GIMP today.

He loves being part of such an amazing community of students.
