Low Poly 3D Modeling with Blender 2.8

Saturday, November 30, 2019
1:00pm - 4:00pm

Love the look of low-poly? Want to get started with making 3D art for games in a supportive, artist-centered environment?

NOTE: This is a 2-part workshop on November 30 and December 7. Registering on this page means you are registered for both sessions.

Join us for a two-part hands-on workshop and learn from artist Kaitlyn Dougon! In the first lesson, participants will learn about how accessible Blender 2.8 is, some of its many, many functions and begin crafting a small table setting using basic shapes.

Participants will be provided with a Blender file with a dining room scene, complete with assets Kaitlyn has made that can be taken apart and inspected, and UV unwrapping textures she uses.

Who this workshop is for

+ You tried Blender before and thought it was sent from heck to end you.
+ You’ve never touched 3D modeling software before and want to try
+ You’re looking to add to your skill collection
+ You want to make the next Untitled Goose Game.

Overview (Part 1)

  • Fundamentals (Tools and Settings)
  • Navigating around the Blender Space
  • What the Heck’s a Normal?
  • UV Unwrapping and Why we’re Lazy Cheaters
  • Everything Around Us is just a Simple Shape in Disguise
  • Final Mission – In the second half of the workshop, participants will begin working on their own dining room set (a table and a plate, maybe a food, utensils, a drink, a doughnut, sky’s the limit) which we will use again in the next lesson.

What to Bring

Bring a laptop with Blender 2.8 installed and a mouse. We have mice to borrow if you don't have your own. We also have a very limited number of computers to borrow – if you need to use one, please reserve it ahead of time!
