Overview

Do you want to create 3D sculptures you can be proud of?

Are free Blender sculpting tutorials on YouTube only giving you a basic understanding, but they don't teach you all the steps necessary to create stunning, high-quality sculptures?

That's why we created this extensive Blender course, that teaches you all important sculpting workflows using only free tools.

In two easy to follow projects, you learn step by step how to bring 3D creatures to life, by sculpting from references, adding color and rendering a turntable from each creature.

So, pick up your graphics tablet (a mouse will do too, but it's much less fun) and start your sculpting journey.

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.
