Character Animation with Blender for Beginners

The complete beginners guide to animating 3D characters

   Watch Promo

Have you ever wanted to bring your own characters to life? Perhaps, you’ve seen a few animated films and thought, “Man, I wish I could do that”?

You probably don’t have a whole lot of cash (as well as time) to invest in learning 3D character animation from an accredited university. Or perhaps you do, but want to get a head-start without forking a lot of cash to start off with.

Even if you’ve done some character animation before, you may have struggled to understand why your character doesn’t look…well…alive.

THE COURSE!

In this course, we aim to help you introduce you to the world of character animation as well as imbue life into your character animations. We also aim to ensure that you don’t go broke doing so.

You will be learning completely from scratch, the whole process of 3D character animation.

BENEFITS

  • You will learn the skills and techniques of animating realistic and believable characters.
  • In addition to learning all the theory-related stuff, you will also get hands-on experience in animating your own scenes. You can follow along as we will animate walks, runs, waving of arms, etc.
  • We will also look at more advanced character animation skills to further help enhance the believability and realism of your characters. You will specifically learn how to animate eye movements to help make your character look alive, facial expressions, lip-syncing, etc.

LOTS TO LEARN!

With 40 lectures and 6+ hours of content, there are so many different things you can learn. The topic of 3D character animation is so vast and complex and the learning curve can be so high, especially when starting out. I’ve gathered everything that I’ve learned over the years and have organized it in a way that will help you understand most effectively.

IS IT FOR ME?

This will be perfect for absolute beginners as I will walk you step-by-step starting from how to navigate your way around your 3D software towards animating convincing character action. There are no nasty jargon used in this course. Everything is explained in an easy-to-understand manner.

You don’t need to know anything about animation. You don’t even need to have a 3D software installed as we will cover this. It will help if you have some passion for character animation. At the very least, some passion for CGI-related works.

This course isn’t limited to just beginners. Intermediate and Expert level users may also gain valuable knowledge from this course.

WHAT ARE THE OUTCOMES?


By the end of this course, you can expect to have a decent understanding of building convincing and realistic 3D character animation. You will also gain experienceand confidence doing your own 3D character animation.

From there, you would be more prepared to start your own projects (imagine being able to create your very own animated short film…) or you could start looking at jobs that need character animators. If you choose to do a more formal course on 3D animation, you will most likely get a head start!


BONUS FREE CHARACTER (WORTH $25)

This character is usually on sale for $25 but you get it for free if you enrol. Feel free to use it straight away for your next film project!

I’M IN! WHAT DO I DO NOW?

You will get support if you are stuck. You also get a fully rigged and ready-to-animate character worth $25 absolutely FREE (limited time only).

Hi, my name is Danan. I am a Software Engineer by day and a Filmmaker/Animator/Educator by night.

I started out making an animated short film for fun using Blender a few years ago. It was during this time did I realize I had a huge passion for 3D filmmaking. I have spent the past 5 years making animated short films and have learnt a great deal about the entire process of filmmaking and animation.

This is something that I do as a hobby. Animation and filmmaking is something I'm quite passionate about and I spent a few years trying to learn and master this skill. Through heaps of trial and error and researching on my own, I feel I have come a long way. I would now like to impart this knowledge towards others who feel a similar way.

I know very well, animated filmmaking is hard. Very hard in fact. One of my main goals, is to make the learning process easier for other people. Feel free to check out any of my courses and I hope I have helped you in your quest to achieve your dream! :)
