Creating realistic 3D environment renderings can be a difficult challenge for any 3D artist to pull off, especially for beginners. If you've ever tried creating your own 3D environment renders and wondered why your renders always end up looking a little...flat, then you're probably missing a number of crucial steps in the modeling, texturing, lighting and rendering process.
This course aims to teach you how to create 3D environments from scratch using Blender. In this project-based course, you will get hands-on experience and create something that most of us are familiar with; backyards. Through the use of references, we will be aiming for photorealistic rendering. (Don't worry if you don't own a backyard, you will still be able to create awesome 3D backyard scenes.)
The course is aimed to be simple and easy to follow so if you are a beginner to Blender or even to 3D in general, you need not be overwhelmed.
What exactly will I learn?
You will start off with brainstorming ideas for your backyard scene followed by making use of references and planning your backyard scene.
You will learn the concepts needed to create realistic 3D environment renders and carry out the planning of your own backyard scene.
You will then work through and model, texture, shade and set up all the assets for your backyard one-by-one with the aim of photorealism. (this includes everything from flowers, trees, fences, grass, etc).
You will then combine all your assets in one scene and create your backyard scene.
Finally, you will bring your backyard to life by focusing on photorealistic lighting, compositing and rendering.
