Week 5: I really needed a win this week...

Like the title suggests, I really need a win this week when it came to Blender. Last week was not good for me, since I failed to complete the Blender tutorial.

However, that was then and this is now, so I started a new 2.8 tutorial. This tutorial was done by YouTuber Chocofur and the name of it was ‘Blender 2.8 Beginner Tutorial - Part 10: Creating First Rendering.’ Chocofur created a 17 part series aimed at beginners like myself. I wish I would have know about this series earlier because I definitely would have watched every part. Unfortunately (or fortunately, however you want to put it) I knew how to do the first 9 parts (or had a good understanding) so I jumped the 10th video.

In this tutorial, we created this fancy 3D garden, complete with a variety of trees, rocks and water. The two images below are the final render.


I have to say that this tutorial was my favorite so far. I don’t know if it was the fact that I was feeling kind of down that I didn’t complete a tutorial last week or the calming voice of Chocofur? All I know is that it was a great feeling to finish.

So Chocofur’s tutorial stopped with showing us beginners how to render an image. I wanted to continue with animation, so I played with the camera and made a super short animation of my 3D garden.

As I keep saying, this was such a fun tutorial and my favorite so far.

Here’s to next week being even better!
