Hey Reader,

Zach here, and I'm super excited to announce the release of our new big course: Master Grease Pencil in Blender!

​​Stop talking, take me straight to the course page​

We partnered up with talented digital artist and Grease Pencil expert Kevin Ramirez, to bring you this new course.

​
Ok, Zach, but what is Grease Pencil? And what is the course all about?

Lazy answer: Watch this video...

Not so lazy answer:

In a nutshell, Grease Pencil is Blender's unique drawing tool, that lets you draw and animate 2D shapes in 3D space, which opens up a whole new creative universe.

For example, you can draw and animate 2D objects and characters in a 3D environment, or make 3D objects look as if they were drawn in 2D. The possibilities are endless.

Although Grease Pencil gives you many new creative ways of telling your stories, it is also a quite complex tool, and it can be hard to fully wrap your head around.

This is why we created this course, to give you a proper and enjoyable start into Grease Pencil, so you don't have to watch random YouTube videos.

In addition to the fundamentals of Grease Pencil, you will also learn how to create a beautiful 2.5D fantasy village scene from scratch and step-by-step, using only free tools (Blender).

​
Do I need to be able to draw?

No, you can join the course without previous Grease Pencil or drawing experience. Only some basic Blender knowledge is recommended, to have fun with this course.

However, we do recommend using a graphics tablet for this course, even a basic one will make your Grease Pencil journey much more enjoyable, although working with a mouse will work in most cases.

​
What is inside?

The course comes with 60+ short and fun video lessons, with a running time of 4.5+ hours.

We are already working on more content for the course, which will be added soon, free for all existing customers. So stay tuned for even more Grease Pencil goodness.

As always...

  • English captions are provided
  • You can stream the course online, or request access to download the course
  • All project files are included
  • You can ask for help underneath the videos, or in our student-only community. Kevin and the CG Boost team will be there to help you.

​
Tested and approved

Worth mentioning here, is that we made a beta test with a couple of students before we launched the course.

These beta testers gave us valuable insights about what they liked and disliked about the course. So we took this feedback and already improved the course by changing some lessons and adding new ones, which should result in an even smoother experience.

Here you can read what our beta testers think of the course.

Hey Reader, Zach here, Today, we’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, you’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,...
