New Video: 3D Animated Short Film "Family Trip"
Here is a short film created with the techniques taught in our Cubic Worlds course. Created in Blender, rendered in Cycles.
Course Update: Cubic Worlds
We added 8 new lessons to chapter 9 "Character Animation" (1:20 h of new content) to the Cubic Worlds course for Blender. This chapter is now complete.
In these new lessons, we will create a full character animation from a video reference, and then combine it with the walk cycle created before, to form a final animation. Then we will bake the animation and add a stop-motion effect.
With this chapter being done, Part 2 of the course is now complete. Watch the video below to learn what Part 2 is all about.
Here are the newlessons of chapter 9:
- 9.10 - Non-Looping Animation - Part 1
- 9.11 - Non-Looping Animation - Part 2
- 9.12 - Non-Looping Animation - Part 3
- 9.13 - Non-Looping Animation - Part 4
- 9.14 - Modular Animation
- 9.15 - Baking Animations
- 9.16 - Stop-Motion Effect
- 9.17 - Animating Characters in big Scenes
We also updateDthe Download Section of the course, where the new chapter is now included:
Next we will work on the last Part 3 "Scene Breakdowns", where we will have a closer look at some other Cubic Worlds scenes. We don't have a release time frame just yet, but it is planned for 2022. Stay tuned!
New Video: Robot Walk Cycle in Blender (Tutorial)
In our new YouTube video, Zach Reinhardt shows how to animate a robot walk cycle in Blender, make it loop perfectly and let the robot walk along a path.

We added the first 9 new lessons to chapter 9 "Character Animation" (~1 hour of new content) to the Cubic Worlds course for Blender.
In this new chapter, you will learn all important basics on how to animate low poly human characters in Blender. We will create looping animations, use video references, combine modular animations, bake animations and much more.
Here are the NEWlessons of chapter 9:
- 9.1 - Chapter Introduction
- 9.2 - Animating Characters is Hard
- 9.3 - Fixing Asset Browser Issues
- 9.4 - Character Animation Basics - Part 1
- 9.5 - Character Animation Basics - Part 2
- 9.6 - Video Reference
- 9.7 - Walk Cycle
- 9.8 - Repeating Loop
- 9.9 - Walk on Path
All in all, this chapter will have 17 videos with 2+ h of content. The missing lessons will be published early next week. Stay tuned!

Challenge Winner Interview with Tom Doizy
In this interview, we talk with Tom Doizy, the 1st place winner of the Monster in the Closet Challenge from La Réunion.
He will give us some insights of his journey as CG Artist and a look behind the scenes of his winning artwork.
Course Update: Master 3D Environments Course
Apart from exploring some new Geometry Node workflows, the 4 new lesson of Master 3D Environments in Blender will also show you how to export literally anything from Google Maps and import it in high quality into Blender.
We will also go through finishing up the scene's camera, lighting and atmosphere, adding mid-ground and background to the grasslands.
Here are the 4 newlessons of chapter 17:
- 17.5 - Adding Background
- 17.6 - Vertex Group Scattering with Geometry Nodes
- 17.7 - Adding the City from Google Maps
- 17.8 - Finalizing the Lighting and Shadows
The remaining lessons will deal with rendering and compositing, and also some extra geometry node and particle work. To be available soon!
