Updated december 27th: parts 3 and 4 added.
In the real world, setting up a Christmas tree is a very personal endeavor. I wanted to try and recreate that by not providing a step-by-step tutorial on exactly how to do it but, instead, simply show you ways to create the different parts that make up the tree. Part 6 will show how you can take the examples in parts 1 thru 5 and create a nice little Christmas tree of your own.
My ideas are based on an artificial Christmas tree, the kind that you would buy at the store and have to piece together on your own.
The commentary in these tutorials is minimized because my goal is to present something that will, hopefully, spark ideas of your own.
The following are available at the moment:
- Part 1 - The Floor and Mat
- Part 2 - The Branches
- Part 3 - Lights and Garland
- Part 4 - Basic Ornament and Star
If you haven't noticed before, Kernon is quietly building a huge collection of video tutorials on his website. I think he's really got his format and technique worked out nicely and I rank his tutorials among the most professional ones you'll find in the Blender community.
Enjoy, and Merry Christmas everyone!
