Blender Master Class book. Out soon, currently 40% off.
My name is Ben Simonds, you might have seen some of my tutorials on my website, BenSimonds.com, or on BlenderCookie or the BlenderArtists forums. Recently I've been working on a book (published by No Starch Press), called Blender Master Class, about creating art with Blender and GIMP. It covers everything from modeling to sculpting, through to textures, materials, lighting and rendering.
The book takes you through three projects, and uses them to explain how blender works.
But this isn't just a simple step by step tutorial. Whilst you can use the book that way, I chose each of the projects to provide a unique set of challenges, and I use the projects to help explain how to use GIMP and Blender in your own projects. The book is filled with examples from my other works too, as well as detailed descriptions of blenders tools, and guides to getting the most out of Blender and GIMP with your own custom UIs, Brushes and Materials.
lus, the book comes with a DVD containing all of the project files and resources used in creating each of the projects, plus some extra goodies like brushes, mat-cap materials, textures, and sculpting alphas.
Hereís a more detailed breakdown of whatís covered in the book:
in the run up to the book's release, you can get the book for 40% off (both the ebook and hardcopy versions) on the No Starch press store, by using the coupon code WILLITBLEND at the checkout.
