I'm a Blender Foundation Certified Trainer (BFCT) and the founder of an online training site for Blender artists called The Orange Guild.


  1. Hey thanks for the video and the encouragement. Its very hard when people around you say you cant or wont. It can be very discouraging when those who you find important dont support. It is really nice to hear another persons struggle with art and how they pushed past that boundary. Keep up the great work. : )

  2. I'm a student and a member of Orange Guild and I can't praise Brandon's tutorials enough. He's a very good teacher and explains everything very thoroughly. I'm learning and getting better exponentially. Also another thing that Orange Guild offers that many don't - is direct one on one interaction with the mentor and ability to ask questions any time! I strongly recommend it!

    it is Just like you were talking to me in that video, initially, i started with sketchup, when i found out that there was blender, i thought i was going to be an easy E to understand was when i saw how complex it was that made me realize that i would spend more time learning the software... i am still learning everyday , hoping to use it for biology 3D experiments like Labster...

    • So happy this resonated with you, Blender can be very daunting in the beginning, but you can do it as long as you don't give up. Happy to help wherever I can, definitely check out the YouTube livestreams, we have one tonight at 7pm and if you get a sec check out for more training!
