Blender Beginner Tutorial Series

When I started learning Blender 12 years ago, I remember feeling frustrated that there wasn't really any beginner "course". Like a series of posts that will show you the basics. Instead I had to jump from tutorial to tutorial, and gleam what I could from each. It would be years before I'd make full sense of it.

Since then, several other people have created beginner courses... but I personally find them to a bit overwhelming for beginners. When you're just getting started, it's daunting to see that you need to watch 100 posts.

So I set out to make something shorter. Something that could be finished in a day, and will show you how to make your first scene - while also gradually introducing new areas of Blender as you need them.

And here it is!
