Published 3 months agoย โ€ขย 2 min read


Hey Reader,

Zach here,

Now it's the exciting time of the year with Black Friday sales all over the place.

A great opportunity to save some money, but it can also be quite overwhelming.

To help you out, weโ€™ve carefully prepared a list of some of our most recommended discounted Blender courses for you.

But before we get to the list below, I want to encourage you to take a moment to think about what you are really aiming to do in 3D?

Think about your own goals, what would you love to learn in the next year? Is it storytelling, modeling, lighting? Or something completely different?

Take a moment to really consider what will help you most, and avoid making rash purchases.

Ok! Now that you have that clear, let's check out our recommendations:

First, our very own Creature Forge and Magic Storybook courses are 20% off. From now until December 4th, 2023 16:00 CET.

In our Creature Forge course, you will learn how to bring your own epic creatures to life, in Blender. You will sculpt, texture, rig and animate your own creations from scratch.

In our Magic Storybook course* you will learn how to use Blender with Grease Pencil, to build any 2.5D world you can imagine, as if they came straight out of a magic storybook.

Next week, we will publish a big update for the course, which will be free for everyone that owns the course.

*Formerly known as โ€œMaster Grease Pencil in Blenderโ€.

Coupon code for both CG Boost courses: BOOST23

Hey Reader, Zach here, Our new Urban Environments course for Blender is opening its doors in just two days. Today I want to share what this course is all about. If you have ever tried to build an entire urban environment in 3D, youโ€™ve probably realized it can be quite an overwhelming task, but such an exciting project.

Hey Reader, Zach here, I'm very proud to share that today January 29th at 4:30pm CET we are premiering the "Robotic Wildlife" 3D Challenge montage video. As we were going through all the submissions and winners for the edit, we thought this could be even better! We wanted to include a look behind the scenes on how these intricate and detailed robot designs were made. So we gave the participants that made it into the final montage more time to create some behind the scenes' footage. And man,...
