This month’s Game Art Orbit will feature a demonstration of the basics of working with Blender 3D. This lesson will cover how to craft a simple object, a dumbbell, and a mildly complex object, an ancient watchtower. We will focus on how to create models, texture them, and edit shaders.
Our guest instructor for this lesson is Christian Romero. Christian is a Game Art student who graduated from Drexel University in 2018, and will be continuing his studies with a Master of Fine Arts at the University of Connecticut in August 2022. Christian is also currently working as a part-time contractor with the YouTube channel Kings & Generals, where he recently released his first video. He is passionate about low-poly art, history, and getting to know new people.
NOTE: Due to the current circumstances, this is an online-only event. We are hosting it on our Discord server, which you can join using this link: discordapp.com/invite/mrTDyau
