Modeling A Spartan Warrior In Blender (2.79)

by Martin Klekner in Training

An epic course helping you create your own characters for your short film (or other projects). More than 3 hours of content in 38 lectures, several bonuses, a lot of fun historical facts and some bad jokes…

NOTE: This is not a human base mesh modeling course. I generate my character mesh in FUSE CC and focus mainly on the warrior's armor and gear modeling.
