Overview

Tired of learning Blender from random YouTube tutorials?

Starting Blender can be quite overwhelming, and learning from random YouTube videos can slow down your progress, since you won't have a clear path to follow.

That's why we created this course to teach you all Blender fundamentals in the most straightforward way, so you don't miss anything important.

Learn navigation, modeling, texturing, animation, lighting, rendering and much more, while creating your own beautiful 3D animation with an easy-to-follow project.

P.S. We love the Blender content on YouTube, but save if for after learning the Blender fundamentals properly.

Zach Reinhardt

Founder & Lead Instructor @ CG Boost

I fell in love with 3D the first time I opened Blender in 2004. From my first freelance jobs, to my first teaching experiences, my passion for telling stories in 3D and teaching my experiences to others grew. All of this led me to founding CG Boost in 2019, where I carefully craft Blender courses to make your learning process an enjoyable journey.
