Today Mikhail Soluyanov (aka Crantiz) and I held a seminar for students and teachers of Technical College in Nizhny Novgorod.

We told about the main features of Blender. About riging, modelling, lighting and other stuff.

Mikhail made a practical part of the seminar. He showed how to model and animate in Blender with the example of Octopus character modelling. For 2 hours we even added bones to the model, recorded their face emotions and made short animation when octopus become smiling and wave us with his "hand".

After practice part we showed the Super-Professional masterpeace wich was made in Blender. It was ... what do you think it was? ... of couse, BigBuckBunny. Students were happy :) They were smiling during almost the whole movie (maybe except the scene of the dying butterfly).

And at the end was the 20 minute session of free questions when Mikhail showed some of his projects. In the photos you can see his hi-tech bicycle.

  1. One guy seems to have have fallen asleep...
    understandable when you have to watch a 2 hours presentation and having no computer to try for yourself.

  2. Good news, especially from Russia!

    about sleeping guy - maybe he is like russian scientist Mendeleyev, which has thought up the table of chemical elements and now everybody can use his invention :)
