Hey /3/Any advice on how to get started as a noobie in Blender? I tried watching tutorials but my eyes started bleeding. Tips and references would be nice. Thanks!
Specifically modeling, texturing and rendering. I have the basics of using 3d software in other programs but have no clue how to apply it into Blender.
>>664321>>664322The first step is that you fucking lurk the board and realize that there's already a thread about this you retard. Also notice the sticky.>I tried watching tutorials but my eyes started bleeding.So you don't have the attention span to follow 20 minutes of talking, but you think that you will be able to follow it up if it's written? Read the manual then.>I have the basics of using 3d software in other programs but have no clue how to apply it into Blender.That's what the videos you refused to watch are for. Useless thread.
>>664323Who hurt you?
>>664321Most of the tutorials are shit now, Pablo Vazquez said that they are working in a new blender fundamentals and more advanced ones, idk if will be only for the Blender Cloud, I suppose that at least the basics will be in their youtube channel, you can use the old ones in youtube but are for the 2.79, are the best that you can get desuhttps://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLa1F2ddGya_8V90Kd5eC5PeBjySbXWGK1
>>664330agreed, andrew price is /ourguy/
donut, then anvil
>>664330>>664451Blenderguru is a fucking meme and pretty shit at making tutorials.Here's a really nice and quick beginner tutorial, showing most of the basic hotkeys and functions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DiIoWrOlIRw

>>664642My most insincere condolences.
>>664321Remington Graphics has a handful of tutorials for fairly important features in Blender. He also has a couple of pretty useful tools, like Procedural 4 which can be used to make nodally generated procedural textures which are actually fantastic since you can prototype without needing to UV unwrap, texture, normal & so on. He also reviews Ant Terrain, and gives an example on how to use it in combination with procedural 4 while reviewing particle systems and global noise rocks (procedural)https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCK55-_p9XtwbYgzxnljszlwOther than that, if a technique exists in something like a game (cell shading for example) you can find something to replicate it.Here's something fun:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lj643VmTsg

lately i've been trying to get an idea out of my brain and onto... paper idka transforming mech built to harvest fluids, in the shape of a kind of pill form. thing is i have no idea where to start plotting out its limbs and such.are there any resources that help design mechs and transformations? because i've been trying to make this for ages but cant ever get anywhere
here it is
ok i have 2 questions1) how do i hide the grease pensil/annotation?2) why isnt the pivot point following my selection?
>>667382what does it harvest and why the crass change in topology on its lower half?
>>667748We're two different anons
how can i make this seam fuck off?these are two halves of a structure but i want it to be seamless like its a solid object when closed
>>667790nvm lost my progress from a crash and now im pissed
this is how it would look like closed,
>>667792and here's what it would look like open, but im not sure on how to model the more mechanical pieces in a believable way,also im a little uninspired on the fuselage (main body) and want to try to make a way to have this fuel tank embedded into a torso like waist with a cap feeding into the central sphere rather than the fuel tank be the waist itself. if anyone has good mech references it would be greatly appreciated
>>667792what blender build are you using? can i have the link please? also if you crash looks for save file in and open it. blender is not 3ds max. if you have SSD in your computer then set automatic save to the 3 minutes.
>>6677942.8 betashould be on the websitealso i did do recover session but it used a way older version of my file, older than the last time i actually saved.
>>667793also i plan to make the middle sections pictured here to raise up as to narrow the limb armor a bit since at the moment its a bit unwieldy looking especially at the arm component
>>667798eh, too late anyways
>>667799Not necesseraly. It keeps the files for a while.
>>667803at any rate im getting a much more interesting result now
>>667804still not sure how im gonna attach the shell pieces to the body via limbs tho
>>664323>Also notice the sticky.The sticky mentions that Blender is free and then we have this:>yes even you Blender fags can get a job in a studio if you know good techniques.It doesn't state if it's a generalist o specialist program. It isn't mentioned as a recommended program. Thus, it can be implied that it's not a suitable program.They even insult their users, they actually spent more words for that than actually describing the program.10/10 Very useful sticky, would read again.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utbypVvsi6U&t=1156sThis is amazing!!
The most efficient way to learn any new skill is to:1. Determine what kind of project you would ENJOY working on.2. Google things along the way.It's that simple.
>>672705This but unironically.
>>672705>Just draw the owl, dude.
>>664321Read about basic tools.Start with 2D (boxy shapes)Read about more toolsExtrude to 3D (squary solids)Read about more and more tools.Smooth and curvy (sexy organics)Read more.
>>664576I disagree. He's very easy to follow along with. Both him and the fairy from CG Geek are what I've been using the past two weeks since iv started learning 2.8.They both are really good at saying again exactly but quickly what they are doing and more importantly, why.That Sebastian guy looks good though so I'm gonna check him out. Thanks.
>>674539>the past two weeks since iv started learning 2.8.Do you even have enough experience to half-judge what they are doing?
>>672705top down, vs bottom up learning.top down will allow you to keep enthusiasm for whatever you're working on, but your knowledge will be less in depth and you'll probably ask dumb questionsbottom up will give you the best understanding, but you'll probably give up early on because it isn't gratifying learning the nitty gritty of UVing vs actually making something (even if it is technically bad)bottom up is reading the manual, top down is making the donut
Modeling a torso has got to be annoying for me as I have to make both the arm, shoulder, and body look real good to me in simple ways. I’m wondering if anyone has tutorial vids beside the cowboy hat guy.
>>672322>It doesn't state if it's a generalist o specialist program. If someone is interested in blender they probably went to blender.org to maybe download it and read the about section, pic related.>It isn't mentioned as a recommended program. >Thus, it can be implied that it's not a suitable program.What do you mean by this? Recommended for beginners? Beginners usually start with a generalist program, blender is one, and it's free, so it's a good choice, especially if you're not sure if you're going to commit to 3d. Suitable for what/whom?>They even insult their users, they actually spent more words for that than actually describing the program.4chan users shitpost all the time, why are you surprised by this?>10/10 Very useful sticky, would read again.7/10 sticky, unironically, with pretty good structure, except for the unsorted bag of infographics.
>>678516There are also links to tutorials, which is what OP is looking for.
