Learning Blender!

Lately, having been inspired by all the amazing artists and developers I met at the Global Game Jam in Cleveland last weekend its helped me to want to learn Blender even more. Blender is a very powerful 3D graphics tool that can handle video, do 3D animations, and is great for making game assets. It has more features than you can shake a stick at. Getting familiar with it can be a little bit of a learning curve so I’ve just been playing around with it trying maybe make a few nifty things along the way. I actually do have some plans to start designing stuff in 3D which I will likely talk about more later. My first experiment was to create a 3D animated version of my logo, which I think turned out fairly well, though far from perfect:

    Yeah blender is a great program for doing 3d design then animating, but personally I prefer 3ds max and Maya by Autodesk. (3ds max being the software for making 3d objects and Maya for the animations.)
