About this Course

Explore a new frontier in 3D animation with the character creation tools in Blender 2.8. This course takes you through everything you need to know to create your own 3D characters with Blender. Expert explains how to model the entire body, from head to feet, and model an animation-ready face with proper edge flow. Learn how to create your character’s costume—in this example project, a space suit and helmet—and use the new Eeevee renderer to set up and apply realistic, high-resolution textures.
