Blender 2.8 Update Coming 2020
We plan to fully update this course to Blender 2.8 in the first half of* 2020. This update will be free for all existing customers. Stay tuned!
*Unfortunately this will take longer, since we are waiting for the completion of the new sculpting features before we can record the update, and this takes longer than expected.

What other people say about this course...
“Zacharias does it again! Honestly I wouldn’t have thought there is still something left to say about Sculpting in Blender, but this course definitely prooved the opposite to me. Zacharias shows some pretty nifty techniques to handle even the highest polycounts in Blender and achieve incredibly detailed results with just simple methods, while casually going through the whole process of sculpting! It’s amazing that there are always things in his videos that I didn’t know before.”
- Lukas Walzer, 3D Artist @ Animationsfabrik Hamburg
“Zach has set the bar for sculpting training in Blender with this course. If you’re like me, there are sliders in the sculpting toolbars that you’ve never touched, having no idea what they do. Those days are over! Zach covers it all and then some! And it’s not just technical, it’s also technique. Everyone from beginner to expert could learn a skill or two from Zach. It doesn’t get much more epic than this!”
- Sean Kennedy, Visual Effects Artist
“If you ever wondered where to start to learn sculpting in blender, then this course is a must have. Zach describes every single tool that are used in blender for sculpting and provide a very fun and easy tutorial, that can be taken by any beginner. There are also a lot of information and an advanced exercise for more advanced user. This course is definitely a reference to learn sculpting in Blender and Zach put a lot of effort to make a very professional package with a perfect editing.”
