Your Instructor

Zacharias Reinhardt
Blender Foundation Certified Trainer

With years of experience as a freelance 3d artist, I’ve learned how to solve many problems while using Blender to produce high-quality work and successfully deliver projects on time. Since 2010, I’ve been teaching these concepts to companies, freelancers, and individuals. Now, I’m here to teach you as well.

I've identified typical pain points that people experience when learning sculpting in Blender (because I’ve been there too) and developed a special framework for all of my Blender courses to make your journey to becoming a professional 3D artist less painful and more fun.

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.”

- Pierrick PICAUT, 3D Artist and Blender Foundation Certified Trainer


Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
I never used Blender before, am I still able to follow along?
This workshop is suitable for both sculpting beginners and advanced users. However, you need to know the fundamentals of Blender, since this course is not a general introduction to the software.
Do I need a graphics tablet to follow the course?
A graphics tablet is recommended, because sculpting with a mouse is not much fun (although it’s possible). A graphics tablet in any size is fine. I’m using a Wacom Intous Pro M in the course.
Do I need a powerful system to use the sculpting tools in Blender?
To have fun while sculpting (we will work with many polygons) a decent computer is recommended. For this course I’m using a Windows 10 PC with 32 GB RAM, an Intel Core i7-7700K CPU and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card.
What software and tools are you using in this course?
The course is recorded in Blender 2.78 / 2.79. If you are using Blender 2.8 / 2.9, you still can apply most of the things shown in this course. The biggest difference is the user interface, the tools and workflows mostly stay the same. Besides Blender, we will use the two free tools Krita and Instant Meshes.
Will you teach human anatomy in this course?
No, this workshop will not teach you anatomy! This course is focusing on sculpting tools, workflows and applying what you've learned on creative creature sculptings.
