New Tutorial: Creating a Heart


5.pngI originally wrote this tutorial for the Blender Tutorial Guide #1 and later is was part of a downloadable PDF in the Blender e-shop. The Guide and the PDF are no longer available, but Ton has given me permission to publish it on my website.

I redid the screenshots and made sure everything is still correct. If you've just started to learn Blender, then this is an excellent tutorial to get used to some of the basic techniques.

You'll find it in my tutorials section.

Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

    I so remember that tutorial, it is one of the very first ones I did in blender. In fact I still use that technique to make hearts. I'm glad to see you updated it for the latest generation of blender users.
