I see a lot of donut hate out here towards blender. Most of it is probably ironic but I assume the hate is for blender and not the tutorial. But if some of you do hate the tutorial, can you recommend to me a better one? I'm just beginning.
>>634072Is this really better? This is much older and doesn't seem to teach as much
>>634073andrew tutorial have 0 modeling in it. so yeah i guess it is better
>>634068muh anvilhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yi87Dap_WOcHe models it, UV unwraps, sculpts details and bake them into a normal map, and then textures it. Same guy but the anvil's less for drooling retards.
CGCookie just started a Blender Basics series. Haven't checked it out (and don't really intend to since I already know how to use Blender), but I've seen the other stuff the host has done and he's decently good at getting stuff across. Might be something of interest.
>>634278I've done that one, and in fact almost all of basic/intermediate CG Cookie modeling courses, and in my opinion they are solid, well-paced, and tend to show the reasoning behind what's being done -- which is the most important thing to learn as a beginner.
>>634068Some of it's ironic, some of it's just tard rage from those who can't admit that Blender's nothing more than a tool (or any 3D software, actually), yet some hate it because of Andrew himself and that there are better people out there that can teach modeling techniques like CGCookie and CGMasters. Or hell, BornCG if you want it free and don't have a CGPeers account.
>>634278Are you talking about this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xT2mtoDnSzM They made it unlisted but i still got links
>>634361Oh no, it's a very new set of videos hosted by some young man named Grant. They just dumped all of them yesterday. Didn't realise they had another series titled exactly the same.
>>634278>>634374Link related: https://youtu.be/Eaw1dUypknUIt's built around 2.8 so it's definitely very current.
>>634068It's just a dumb meme. Andrew is kind of a meh artist but an awesome teacher, whereas say Gleb Alexandrov is an awesome artist and a terrible teacher.You can learn a lot from both, but as a beginner you should start with Andrew. As for "better tutorial", you just flat out need to DO tutorials; you need to chew through them.Every tutorial you do you'll learn new stuff, eventually you'll do an 8 hour tutorial series and only learn one thing but that one thing will end up saving you hours or days of labor compared to doing it "the wrong way".By the way, if you see an "old tutorial" (like 2.78 or so) don't be afraid to do them. The UI is changing but the changes are cosmetic, once you know the techniques (and more specifically keyboard shortcuts) the UI will be irrelevant.
>>634068that Andrew Price tutorials wasn't that bad honestly. The variety of modeling/particles/rendering was a nice overview of blender but no section really taught a specific topic.I say just view those tutorials as a nice primer. they're not long and you'll have a donut at the end.
>>634377God I wish I was gay so I could have a cute bf like him
>>634377this guy is very handsome, no homo.idk how he ended up making blender vids, should have been a model.
>>634422Yeah but then your life would be easier and you would never grow as a person.
>>634422Just take the plunge already fag. You're already 9/10ths gay just from browsing 4chan for too long.>in after some stupid teenage summerfag claims to not be gay
>>634422Good news Anon, I think you may already be subject to feelings of homoerotic attraction.
>>634451You can't be gay if you only bottom
