Would you like to learn how to model an entire medieval castle?
Now, what if I told you I have a course to do just that on Blender Market?
'Blender 2.9 Creating a Medieval Kitbash' will see you creating a super varied group of interlinkable assets.
The biggest set of variations are available for roofs, castle towers, and related fixings.
There’s nothing like this course on Blender Market.
'Blender 2.9 Creating a Medieval Castle Kitbash' will give you access to 24 full hours of 3D asset creation. It will teach you the very basics of Blender 2.9, moving on to professional techniques in a short time of accelerated learning.
And that's not all. The course will be even longer than that because we still have to build the castle. As a result, this will certainly be my biggest course yet, scoring at over 30 hours of learning.
Through reading this course description you will find out:
- What you want to learn about 3D modeling;
- What you are going to get through 'Blender 2.9 Creating a Medieval Kitbash', and;
- What are you going to lose if you don’t enrol in this course.
Join the craziest Blender course on Blender Market to complete a kitbash with you infinite possibilities. By completing the course, you will be able to 3D model vast cities, towns, and castles.
We go on a journey through 65 medieval castle kitbash parts.
Through 'Blender 2.9 Creating a Medieval Castle Kitbash', you will be creating a series of exciting variations of castle walls, including walls with or without slits for bowmen (let's imagine there's an impending battle, right?!).
You will also be creating white walls like the ones we built in my 'Blender 2.8 Complete Beginners Guide to 3D Modelling a Scene' course. As part of building these props, you will learn how to create and apply Tudor era wall materials; the iconic wood, wattle and daub (i.e., wooden strips covered with clay).
Other awesome props will include hatch doors and windows, wooden walls, a hay roof, stone roofs, a moat bridge, and castle towers with round winding steps.
There will be a huge series of props and individual components for towers, including extensions and decorative details.
Following the success of my latest courses, we will be modelling, texturing, and finalising every individual asset before moving onto the next. Students have said that this has helped them in staying excited throughout the creation process, being able to see how their scene comes closer to the course preview step-by-step.
Kitbash item variations will help you diversify your castle and make it unique from any other student's. With a touch of innovative thinking, which I know you all have, you will be able to create something that stands out.
Be creative! Make your castles bigger and grander. Expand your castle keep land or beautify the upper level of the castle to make it stand out more and increase the social class divide with the other people living there.
Engage in roleplay thinking as you build your castle and create something that breathes life!
Texturing and Materials
One of the new things we cover in this course is vertex painting. We will be painting on vertices, which gives us the ability to create layered texturing. The more vertices you have, the more detailed you can make a texture. In a few words, we will be painting onto the mesh.
As part of creating our medieval castle walls, you will learn how to get your bricks to be seamless when they line up. Using this technical know-how, you will learn how to improve how realistic your medieval castle wall design looks.
This course will also teach you the basics of shaders and how to create your own water shader which you will be able to use in any other builds. But that is not the only unique feature of this course.
We will also be using a grass texture to represent the flourishing grass around our castle gate, and we will adorn the scene using solid rocks.
Lighting is one of the most fundamental parts of this course and we take a deep dive into not only HDRI real-world lighting. For a full introduction into lighting 3D scenes, we will also cover all in-built Blender lighting functionalities.
We render the kitbash every time we finish a section to make sure everything is going together correctly. To give you full control over the rendering process, you will learn how to render out your scene in both Eevee and cycles and you will know what their differences are.
Course Resources & Freebies
The course reference pack includes 125 texture maps, including alphas, albedo, AO, roughness, metallic, normal, height, and displacement. Our course reference schematics will also show you all the little parts of what you will be creating and they include height information for each asset.
The best course navigation tool for 'Blender 2.9 Creating a Medieval Castle Kitbash' will also be included. The course handbook will give the control back to you and you will be able to fully streamline your learning process to your needs and wants seamlessly.
Something like this is essential to courses as long as this one, and 3D Tudor is the first to consistently include this with all the newest courses.
'Blender 2.9 Creating a Medieval Castle Kitbash', is perhaps the most detailed course on Blender Market. We will go through every single part of the creation process. Nothing's left to chance.
Enrol in this course and come be part of a 3D modeling journey of over 30 hours of learning.
Check out the free introduction and I am sure you won’t be able to put this course down.
Still unsure? Then, let me tell you what's unique about this course:
- a massive course resource pack with 125 free texture maps;
