Hey Reader,

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

​"Charge" New Blender Open Movie​

I really enjoyed the new open movie, created by the Blender Studio. It is entirely done in Blender, and rendered in Eevee. This means it was rendered nearly in realtime, and for that, it looks fantastic.

This feels like one episode of the awesome Netflix "Love, Death and Robots" show. Great production quality and nice little story.

If you want to learn more, you can check out the making of video, and you can even get access to all production files, if you subscribe to the Blender Studio.

​Stylized Microscope in Blender​

In our new Blender tutorial, Kevin Ramirez shows how to create a stylized microscope in Blender. You will learn the entire workflow, from modeling, over shading, to adding details with Grease Pencil.

I especially love the part of adding the shader and Grease Pencil outlines.

Btw. Kevin's new Grease Pencil course is still 20% off, till January 2nd, 2023.

Realistic Laboratory Glass in Blender​

We have another new science lab themed tutorial for you (based on our last challenge).

Here, Masha Bazueva shows how to model and texture a realistic laboratory glass in Blender and gives a quick breakdown of how the science lab scene was created.

Although Masha is a long-time CG Boost team member, this is her first tutorial on our channel.

Live 3D Art Critique - Science Lab Challenge​

Last Wednesday, we had our last livestream for 2022, where we critiqued submissions of the "Science Lab" 3D Art Challenge. Together with Jesse from Kaizen Tutorials, we had a good time reviewing some of your works.

Check out the chapter marks on YouTube, to jump to the section of the video you are interested in.
​

​"Blender Hotkey Sheet" PDF updated to Blender 3.4​

We updated our Blender Hotkey Sheet PDF to reflect the changes in the new stable version of Blender 3.4.

It includes a colored version and a grayscale version, optimized for printing.

You can now download it here, without the need to sign up or login. Enjoy!

That was the last resource email for 2022. Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

P.S. If you haven't noticed, our Substance Painter Launch Pad course is now permanently 50% off.
