Along with the training, the course also provides a huge range of resources, like textures, reference photos and nature models.

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.


  1. This is amazing! I have one question though, I will be unavailable for atleast 2 weeks during this, so will I be able to download the courses i've missed? Plz respond

      Yeah, I joined last time, and how it works is each week a new tutorial is added, but all the old ones are still there too.  Also, once you've joined, you are still a member for the future, so I'll be able to see the new tutorials this time round with having to pay again.

  2. It looks great. It was a little disappointing that most of the quotes were from people in the Blender fold, and not those outside. Outside praise speaks louder then self-congratulations.

  3. Dude. It's a Blender course. Who does it make more sense to have commenting on a Blender course than well respected Blender artists? If Andrew was trying to advertise Blender to the reset of the CG world per se, then sure, you'd want people from across the board. This is not, however, an ad for Blender to random CG users. It's an ad for how to do things in Blender for Blender users, therefore it makes perfect sense to have testimonials from Blender artists.

    • No but andrew said in the breakdown that platinum(i think) members of the nature academy will get a free ebook bonus on converting to cycles or something along those lines.

  4. I joined the Nature Academy yesterday, just loving it.
    You can arrange to pay weekly, its very inexpensive considering the  skills you get, well worth it!

  5. Some questions: Are those online video tutorial especially for the 13x weeks in-depth training? (I'm from oversea). Is everything downloadable so I can learn it at my own pace? Is everything compatible with Mac?
