About this Course
This course will guide you through learning how to use Blender to create your own models, animations, games, and more. It will eventually be composed of 15 weeks worth of learning material that will help you develop your skills. It is strongly reliant on the documentation found in Blender 3D: Noob to Pro as it is already a valuable resource that has been proven to help quickly advance skills in Blender.
Learning Challenges Objectives:
To first learn the basics of using the complex blender user interface and basics of 3D computer graphics using learning materials already available.
