Blender is a 3D computer modelling and animation software increasingly used professionally in film special effects (Jurassic World), television (Man in the High Castle), games (Ubisoft), animation (Next Gen), product design, media and across the arts to make a wide variety of 3D imagery.
The software is free on opensource, and so is a fantastic way to start learning the valuable skills needed to get started in this exciting field of the arts. Developing 3D modelling skills will benefit and expand the vocabulary of anyone involved in the visual arts and design. You might want to design a prototype ready to be 3D printed, illustrate a 3D cartoon character, create a 3D scene, the potential is limitless! This course is for absolute beginners using 3D modelling; however, it is recommended that you have a good level of confidence using computers.
You would benefit from having some experience using other design software such as Photoshop or Illustrator but this is not absolutely necessary.
