Hello ZiroBurno :)
Hi, I'm thinking about buying "The essential Blender", because I've never used any decent books/tutorials to learn Blender. Can anyone tell me: is the book worth the money? Or shouldn't I buy it, because I already know all the basics? Thank you :)
I was thinking about buying that book also but I am starting to lean more towards suffering through the basics with free tutorials and when I need to move on to more specialized things then get books for that. So for instance I am looking at getting "Introducing Character Animation with Blender 2.5" when it comes out and also "Mastering Blender", "Stop Staring: Facial Modeling and Animation Done Right", "Bounce, Tumble, and Splash!: Simulating the Physical World with Blender 3D", "Building a Digital Human", and finally some books on human anatomy.
For me I think the basics can be learned through the community for free but the techniques on how to do different things needs to be studied more in depth. I have grown frustrated by all of the learn blender books because of the pace of the books.
Yeah ok, that sounds like a good idea.
I thought that "the essential blender" would maybe have some useful new information about the things I already partially know, because I learned the very basics (adding meshes and editing them) from some free tutorials, but I learned most things by trial-and-error and just messing around.
I will take a closer look at the free tutorials and when I'm done with them I'm going to take a look at 'specialized' books.
Thanks for the reply! :)
(And sorry for my bad English, hopefully it's good enough to make myself clear.)
Your English was fine, have you checked out the tutorials on blender underground. I have so far created a decent looking head mesh but with these tutorials i am learning more of the basics then going back and applying them.
this group deserves more activity
doesnt it ?
Hi all, I am new to 3D and decided to learn with Blender. My intent on learning this program is to begging modeling characters for 3D art and maybe be some game modding with the cryengine2. Glade to join and I plan on being active.
good luck mate, modelling is fun and relaxing after a while.
Hope your road is bumpy but respectfull ^_^
