Tutorial Series Project an Idea is on the way

New Projects and Tutorials Series on the way.


The Idea of the new Tutorial Series Project

Since a few weeks I’am playing around with and idea of publishing new and fresh tutorials on my Tutorial Website. The Theme of the tutorials will be Science Fiction, Spaceships, SciFi-Scenes and futuristic Environments. I’m thinking to give the whole thing the title “The Space Academy”. At this time right now i am at the beginning of the process to make the tutorials. I prepared a lot of Tutorials about different materials in the last few month and that’s by the way the reason i have not published one tutorial the last few month. And i think it will take some more time until I publish another tutorial because I want to integrate these tutorials in my new idea of “The Space Academy”. The name has absolutely nothing to do with the Nature Academy or Architecture Academy of Andrew Price, he’s a great guy and really a Blenderguru. The name is because the first thing i thought about was Wesley Crusher in TNG when he went on the Starfleet Academy.

I have prepared over 60 Material Tutorials, yes you heard right over 60!!. For all these Tutorials i have written step by step Tutorials to publish them together with the video tutorials. These written Tutorials are 6 up to 15 pages long for every Material, that means I have written over 600 pages of tutorial steps. For 40 % of the Tutorial i have made just the video as well, but its only raw material and they are not edited right now. A lot work but was never happy about the concept. I posted in the last few days some Images on Facebook and Google+. My plan was to discover how much interest is out there for this topic. I have to beg the community for forgiveness that I acted like a semi noob. But I wanted to be criticized on the workflow and where i have to prevent errors. The response was amazing. I liked the comments very much because they showed me what the community wants to see. Thank to all reviewers.

Here’ is a little example what i am talking about.

Tutorial Series Project "The Space Academy"

What can you learn.

The Tutorials will cover the whole process of creating a still life like the image above.

  • Basic and Advanced modelling Technics.
  • how to create realistic Materials in Blender
  • advanced normal map Technics with Photoshop, Gimp, ndo2, xnormals and crazy bumb
  • how to create a HDR lightning environment
  • creating complex light setups
  • and much more.

more Ideas

Yes there is more. I am thinking about going the extra mile with these tutorials. I am thinking of showing you how to take Texture images with a Professional Equipment in my Studio and in the nature(For the Neerds nature is that funny thing behind your window)  and how you can do it without a fancy equipment. Maybe i am able to show how to take footage for integrating a model in a real world scene. The thing is i want to show you the whole process from the very beginning to the bloody end.

But remember this is just an idea of an upcoming project, there are so many things still to do.
