Blender Kids & Teens

February 23, 2018 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

FX Dojo presents a Digital Sculpting workshop! Students will learn how to use Blender’s powerful Sculpt Mode to create high resolution models. This state-of-the-art workflow is the open source alternative to the popular Zbrush/Maya pipeline professionals have been using for the past decade. Prior experience with Blender is required.

Blender’s sculpting tools mimic traditional clay modeling methods

Grab, pinch, and scrape! Adjust your brush strength and of course you can undo if you mess up!

Recognizing patterns in topology

For successful transition from traditional to digital sculpting, students must learn the fundamental concept of proper topology. Most digital sculpting class hastily gloss over or completely skip these lessons. Keeping a low poly count requires problem solving skills that combine analytical and creative parts of the brain. Students of all ages find this quite stimulating because it is rare to engage in math and art simultaneously in typical academic environments.

Retopologize – it’s not as bad as it sounds

Most digital sculptors dread the process of retopologizing because it feels like you are building your entire modeling for a second time! But the process is essential for generating a low polygon version and is also an opportunity to “clean-up” your work. Blender developers have created an array of tools to help ease this process.
