Learning Blender

I spent some time trying to learn Blender. I have no previous experience with 3D modeling tools and Blender looks very complicated and confusing for me. It has many key combinations and buttons, even your actions can lead to something unexpected.

At first I spent some time reading Blender – Noob to Pro and doing the examples. I managed to get the basics – grab, rotate, scale, extrude, etc.

I haven’t made any decent model so I start to read Introduction to Character Animation by Ryan Dale. It is a really great document, if you need to learn Blender, this book can help you a lot.

Here are my first attempts, don’t laugh much:

Shaping the mouth.

The head. It looks creepy.

I made some mistakes.

Yey, almost done!
