About This Class

If you're here it means you have a story to tell through animation.  This class is the easiest way to learn how to create a character for animation.  You'll learn how to model and pose a character from scratch.  After you take this class you'll be able to put any character in any pose, and tell a story worth a thousand words.  You're also going to learn how to bring your scene to life by animating the camera and creating a 360-degree video.  This is all done with the absolutely free Blender 3D software.

 This class focuses on the fundamentals of creating a character for animation.  Characters that walk, jump, run, and fall are all possible if you use the methods taught here.  If you want to jump straight to making a character move, check out my walking character class.  There, I provide you with the model so you don't need to know how to create one.

If you're interested in the fundamental aspects of modeling and animation, check out my other class.  

Be sure to read the project description to get the reference file you'll need to create your captivating poses.

This class does not assume any prior knowledge.  You simply need a reasonably up to date computer.  It can be Mac, PC, or Linux.

Great class idea! William adds clear, concise instructions with a dash of humor to help you make your character appear a bit more human by placing him or her in a cool pose. This class allows you to be extremely creative as you decide how to position the bones and joints.

This great and in depth but a bit on the long side for me. Nonetheless, I think I will give Blender a try.
