Beginners Guide: Create A 3D Vaporwave Animation

by Harry Helps in Training

Hi, my name is Harry! I’m a professional 3d artist with over a decade of experience. I’ve worked most recently as the Studio Director of an award winning architectural visualization studio.

In this class, we’ll learn how to create a stylized Vaporwave animation. We'll be using a real 3d scanned statue of Aphrodite from the 2nd century!

We’ll be going through the entire process of creating this Vaporwave animation from a beginner’s perspective to avoid as much confusion as possible. That means I won’t be skipping any steps or going too fast for you to keep up with me.

This class is meant for complete beginners to Blender. No experience in Blender (or 3d modeling in general) is needed to follow along, though it certainly wouldn't hurt! The included "Blender Crash Course" lessons will teach you everything you need to know to get started with the rest of the class.

In this class you'll learn:

  • Blender Interface and Tools: Learn about many basic tools and interface elements within Blender while altering and animating the statue.

  • Modeling: Achieve a Vaporwave aesthetic by altering a 3d scanned Greco-Roman statue.

  • Lighting: Set up a stylized lighting scheme including volumetric lighting.

  • Shading: Give objects the appearance of glowing neon lights, golden metal and more.

  • Animating: Create a subtle looping animation featuring a Vaporwave statue.

  • Rendering: Render a final animation in Blender so you can share it with your friends and family on social media.

You'll create:

  • This stylized looping animation in an awesome Vaporwave aesthetic!
