Polygon Runway – Create 3D Lettering in Blender Free Download
Create 3D Lettering in Blender
Unlock your creative potential and create beautiful 3D type layouts to complement your designs, websites, or social media posts
Meet Ian Barnard
Ian is hand lettering artist from UK and wants to share with you his experience with 3D and why he has helped me to prepare these beautiful layouts.
What will you create?
You will create 3 illustrations with defferent themes and techniques, so that’s immediately 3 different ways, you can go about creating your next lettering design, or typography illustration.
Why 3D lettering?
Lettering and typography are beautiful art disciplines and when taken into a third dimension, the possibilities are endless.
What’s more, 3D design is firing on all cylinders past couple years and the demand is still growing. When combined with the typography, it can be great way to create beautiful website hero images, social media posts, or even prints or T-shirts.
This course is a series of three episodes, that will guide you through the creation of lettering layouts in free 3D tool Blender, based on the work of amazing hand lettering artist, Ian Barnard.
When you’re learning new skill, you want results. And fast. I know, I’ve been there. That’s why, this course is split into episodes, that give you the great looking results in shortest amount of time possible. You pick up new techniques as you go and by the end of the course, you will find out, that there is no limit on layouts you can create.
You can follow the lessons with no prior experience with Blender or 3D whatsoever, but if you’re familiar with 3D and just want to get up to speed with the lettering techniques, there are handoff files for every single chapter, so it’s easy to skip and continue, where I left off.
I share a lot of personal workflow tips along the way and add a little bit of that secret lighting sauce on top
