As promised, I’ve come up with another quick tutorial. It turned out a little longer than I had anticipated, but in all fairness, it’s basically three videos wrapped into one. I’ve been using Lightworks to do the editing, but while it’s been relatively fun, I’m starting to feel like I need something with finer control.
Recently I had the need for a sphere that had the same topology on all six “sides.” That is, in both ways along three mutually orthogonal axes. Inspired by a BB-8 design I saw on Blender Artists, I threw together a quick video tutorial.
When I was first starting out with Blender, tutorials like this helped me along enormously. I tried to be specific enough that someone with extremely limited knowledge of Blender could follow along, but not so bogged down as to be annoying to an enthusiast looking for a neat trick or two. Hopefully this will mark the beginning of a series.
