Learn how to create amazing stylized and non-photorealistic 3D art in Blender 2.92.
Non-photorealistic rendering or NPR is a whole world by itself! From Pixar-style or 'Into the Spiderverse'-style rendering to low-poly aesthetics or pixel art, there are so many ways to express yourself by creating stylized 3D assets and scenery.
No need to spend a lifetime learning the NPR ways though. We condensed the principles and techniques of creating stylized 3D into this 12+ hour training for beginner-intermediate Blender users.

What the artists say?
"Ever wanted to dip your toes into the world of NPR? Look no further; this is one of the best introductions for it yet!"
“This course is WILD! The gateway drug into NPR. Remembering my first foray into NPR, this is that. You want to feel how I feel years ago, this is your chance. The once in a life time experience.”
"This course not only teaches one specific set of skills, but touches on the concept, modeling, texturing, shading, compositing, grease pencil, even shows you how to use blenders python API as an artist and more.I highly recommend this course."
"Filled with concepts about stylization I'd never heard of before and ideas about how I can incorporate these new techniques into my workflow. I was left feeling very inspired! Everything is broken down in a way that's approachable and friendly."

Thanks so much for joining us on our exploration through the sometimes surreal, sometimes even more real world of stylized 3D art in Blender.
Well that's a lot of files and videos! Where to start?!
At the top you should see some zip files, these should contain all the videos in a convenient easier to download collection. This means you don't need to download all the video zips AND the videos.
Though the videos should be available to stream on gumroad without the need to download them at all. (Only applicable around the launch date: There maybe a slight delay for when streaming becomes available, usually this should be ready by the time the course launches but if not it may take an extra day before they can be streamed).
The video course is divided up into 4 sections. A, B, C and D.
'A' has lots of stylized art principles and techniques, these are mostly standalone lessons and exercises that can be looked at and referenced in any order.
'B' is a step by step creation of a simple isometric scene designed to be watched in order. We made this very beginner friendly to balance out the more intermediate car smash project coming up in the 'D' section.
'C' jumps into the grease pencil side of things. The first parts focus on theory and approach, then we put that to practical use trying out an alternative way of tackling the UFO from section 'B'.
'D' is Manu's car smash still image. There are tons of tips and tricks in here as Manu takes you through his process.
All the videos come with subtitles embedded, however we've also included the subtitle files separately to use should that come in handy for searching and finding a particular section.
Also included are 2GB's worth of blend files. These are organized to reflect the various videos they relate to, some videos have multiple blends to reference. If you'd like to watch a video while inspecting the finished blend file you should be able to do so!
