New Course! Making a Short Film Teaser using Blender Eevee

I just released a new course on my Gumroad - "Making a Short Film Teaser Using Blender Eevee" where I go behind the scenes of my latest Heroes of Bronze teaser, made in Eevee.

More than 100 minutes of Eevee, Blender, Substance Painter and After Effects project breakdowns.

Topics covered:

- How I assembled scenes from the teaser using Blender 2.8 Eevee

- How to light your Eevee scenes and add atmosphere

- How to render from Eevee for easy compositing

- How to create 3D and 2D soldiers for your armies

- How to add image skies and use HDR images to light realtime scenes

- How to simulate particles and bake cloth sims

- Adding Megascans to your scenes

and more...

WARNING: These are NOT step by step tutorials, rather breakdown videos, summarizing the workflow I used to create the "Before the Storm" teaser...

Also, some historical fun facts about Ancient Greece are of course a must :-)

Chairé,

Behind the Scenes Articles on BlenderNation!

Hello, friends of Heroes of Bronze! Wonderful news, recently, two articles were published at BlenderNation, where I talk in detail about how I got to working on Heroes of Bronze.

In the first article, I talk a bit about my career, but mostly about what influenced me to start creating Heroes of Bronze, how I approach my projects and generally, what I would recommend for your own projects.

The second article is a Behind the Scenes piece, all about the “Before the Storm” teaser - how I created my assets, how I studied reference, what learned working with Eevee and Blender 2.8 and loads of other info.

Hope you’ll like both of them! It’s my first time being featured like this, so I am very excited about these articles! :-)

Teaser Behind the Scenes Videos!

Exciting news, my friends!

After finishing the Pedestal tutorial course, I am now starting a new series of videos, connected closely to the “Before the Storm” teaser. In it, I will be dissecting the shots you can see in the teaser, showing you behind the scenes of my Blender, Substance and After Effects files.

And already, a first of these videos is available for free on my Youtube, and also, a second one you can find on my Patreon channel, where it’s unlocked for the Hypaspist and Hoplite tier Patrons :-)

More BTS videos will come soon…

Heroes of Bronze Teaser hitting soon!

This will be a quick one, I just wanted to let you know that something very special is coming… a first short teaser for Heroes of Bronze! Rendered completely in real-time Blender renderer Eevee, which allowed me to create it in less than a week time. Its speed and power is truly a revolution, one that gives me hope I can make all that I have planned for Heroes of Bronze a reality!

The teaser will hit in a matter of days and a lot of Behind the Scenes content will follow, so if you don’t want to miss it, consider subscribing to my Youtube channel or even support on Patreon, where by the way you can vote in a free poll to influence what my next tutorial will be :-)
