Who is this for?

Is this course right for you?

It’s a big YES, if you are mainly interested in storytelling with 3D art and not so much in advanced modeling or sculpting.

Even though this course uses a lot of simplified techniques, it is definitely not a beginner course, and you should know your way around Blender to fully enjoy it.

The best way to start is our Blender Launch Pad course, which you can grab at the checkout at a special price.

At least, you should finish our free Blender Beginners course.

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.
