๐Ÿ“–โœจ Magic Storybook Part 2 Release | Turn 2D Art into 3D Experiences!

Published 3 months agoย โ€ขย 1 min read

Hey Reader,

Zach here,

Have you ever wondered how to give your 3D scenes that 2D look?

Imagine creating colorful drawings, but instead of sitting on a flat page, it exists in 3D space, as if you could step inside.

Our Magic Storybook course, created by our talented instructor and CG artist Kevin Ramirez, teaches you just that.

In this course, you learn how to utilize Blender's 2D drawing and animation tool called Grease Pencil, which allows you to create a hybrid of 2D and 3D scenes.

In the already released Part 1 of the course, you learn the basics of Grease Pencil and how to create a vivid animated fantasy village scene, by mainly drawing 2D strokes in 3D space.

Now, we are super excited to share that Part 2 just released, which completes the course.

In this new update you'll learn how to use more advanced Grease Pencil workflows and how to create 3D scenes (with actual 3D meshes), and give it that 2D look with cartoon shaders and Grease Pencil techniques.

Check out the new course trailer that provides more info on Part 2:

So, what exactly will you learn in part 2?

  • Advanced Grease Pencil workflows
  • Hybrid 2D and 3D workflow
  • Create an Alchemy Lab scene from scratch
  • Basic Grease Pencil rigging
  • Stylized 2D and NPR lighting
  • And much more

You can get the course 20% off until December 4th 16:00 CET as part of our Black Friday sale.

This update comes free for all existing course owners. So just login and enjoy the new content.

By far the most exciting part of releasing more educational content to our courses is seeing the creative and amazing scenes our students create.

I canโ€™t wait to see what you create next.

Hey Reader, Zach here, Today, weโ€™re proud to finally launch our new Master Urban Environments course for Blender, taught by Cov Phillips. Dense urban cities can be so immersive and inspiring. You can wander around for hours and still find strange and interesting places, from tall shiny buildings down to dirty alleyways. But it can be quite overwhelming to attempt to do in 3D, with all the big variety of elements, from detailed buildings down to the trash on the street. Where do you even...

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. We found that it's hard to find a full course that teaches you to create exactly that, step-by-step. That is why we teamed up with Cov Phillips to create the Master Urban...

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,...
