Important: No Tutorial next week
As many of you know, I’ve been in Korea for the past 2 months visiting my girlfriend… but next week I fly home to Australia. Which means, as you may guess, I have to do the long distance relationship thing… again
Unfortunately that means I won’t time to put together a tutorial next week. Not unless I spent every waking moment mucking around in Blender, which I don’t think my girlfriend would appreciate. That’s why I’ve decided to take a break and devote my time to the one I love. She deserves it!
That unfortunately means that there will be one less typography tutorial than I had planned, but there will still be a total of 4
But wait, there’s a surprise
You didn’t think I was going to leave you completely empty handed next week did you? Well in lieu of a tutorial next week, I’ll be giving a small gift to all of my email subscribers. It’s not a tutorial but it’s something I know you will all find useful Stay tuned!
I hope you enjoyed this weeks typography tutorial! I look forward to reading your thoughts in the comments belowDownload finished .blend Recreate the Starcraft 2 Logo,
