Tutorial: Blender Character Modeling For Beginners


After a LONG break, Riven Phoenix is back with a new tutorial series! Here's his first part.

Here is a new free online video series for beginner blender users I am working on where I will show how to create a high quality 3D character design from scratch without using any reference.. Here is the first lesson from this series where we will start to model the human head using a formula based system that anyone can follow. I will follow up with the next tutorial soon.

    Excellent tutorial. I've spent ages trying to model a basic head and followed lots of different tutorials, this is the first one where I've had a successful result.

    Thank you!

  2. Modelling a human by numbers - I like it! If you need a complete human in a hurry, I'd recommend MakeHuman (free). It's a very quick way for inept organic modelers (like me) to create a human figure that imports into Blender with good topology.
