In this three-day course we will learn the most important skills to create 3D environments. We will focus on the creation of materials, set up a basic building and develop a small environmental scene. In the end of the course we will review the results and there will be a Q&A session on how to promote yourself and your work.

Day 1:
On the first day we will examine various 3D creations and structures. We will compare the complexity of materials in the real world to those of 3d environments. We will learn how to make PBR material and apply it to a 3D wall.

Day 2:
I will explain the basic techniques for the design of 3d buildings. Then we will start to create a simple building from scratch. We will add textures and optimize our materials from the previous day.

Day 3:
You will learn how to schedule your work for larger environments. Using our building from day two and a set of assets we will create a small scene. We will review the results of each others work and discuss improvements. In the end of the course I will give some insight on how to promote your work to a client.

All students will be provided with written lectures (PDF). I will further provide environmental art books for extended training purposes during the three days.

Terms and conditions

We aim for 100% customer satisfaction. However, courses are commercial ventures in which Blender Institute invested quite a lot to make this possible. For that reason we have a well defined refund policy. Our standard terms and conditions can be downloaded here.
