Hey Reader,

Zach here with another round of useful and inspiring CG and Blender related resources.
​

​New "Grassland" Geometry Nodes Chapter​

​

Martin Klekner is working hard to bring you the next addition to the Master 3D Environments in Blender course. In chapter 17, you will discover how to use Geometry Nodes to create a "Grassland" environment.

The first videos of the chapters are now available. There you will learn several Geometry Nodes based workflows that will teach you how to displace a terrain, scatter assets, randomize values of assets and combine various GeoNode networks together.

More content is coming soon to this chapter, so you will learn how to create the entire scene above.

A new CG Boost challenge winner interview is online. This time we talk with Bert Willemsen, the 1st place winner of the Abandoned Space Station Challenge from the Netherlands.

​Blender Grease Pencil "Bakery Shop" Tutorial​

​

Kevin Ramirez created another wonderful Grease Pencil tutorial for Blender. This time he shows how to create a lovely bakery shop scene, from start to finish. There you will learn how to use various 2D tools and techniques, to create a painting in 3D space.
​

​Geometry Proximity Tutorial (Geometry Nodes)​

​

CrossMind Studio continues with his amazing Blender Geometry Nodes series. This time he covers how to use the Geometry Proximity node, which is useful for all sorts of motion graphics and procedural effects.

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,...
