Blender Study Group


1 per session Virtual OK

Let's get together in chat at scheduled times and talk about our projects and how we are using Blender. We troubleshoot each other's problems and demonstrate what we are learning for each other. I'm not seeking to make Simbi with this service - we trade by teaching each other what we know, or by learning as we help others.

If me or this group was able to help you and you seek to express your gratitude in some form beyond helping out in the group, feel free to request the service for the price of 1 Simbi and leave a review!

A special note about rescheduling: I want everyone who joins this group not to be obligated to show up when we "schedule" meets. Cancelling is allowed and unlimited, just give a heads up as courtesy. Life happens, and I want us to be able to practice and learn at our convenience. We have jobs, kids, life, and enough on our plates, so let's just keep this fun and positive.

Blender Pipeline Critique/Advice
I'm pretty new to Blender, though I've been doing digital art and modeling in ZBrush for some time now. I need to work out the bugs in my ZBrush to Blender pipeline and I'd appreciate some advice. ...

About Rebecca Tuminello

I'm a digital artist and a parent - partially completed with college, and largely self taught. I am an illustrator and 3D modeler with a mind geared especially for organic forms, characters and enviro...nments. My desire is to bring my visions and those of my clients to life through a wide selection of digital media. Other things I love: writing, sustainability, animal husbandry, health and wellness, science, psychology, fiction, elemental tarot, comics, and nearly all manner of nerdy things. Beyond boosting my professional integrity, I hope Simbi turns out to be a wonderful opportunity to network with fun and interesting people. I recently moved to Illinois from Montana, and am in the middle of moving again to Wisconsin. I need to rebuild my social life! I spend my free time modding games, doing commissions or art, and with my kids. Availability: Usually Mon 9am - 1pm, and Tues-Fri between 9am - 3pm To help you reserve time with me, here's a link to my google calendar: Some random personal goals that don't necessarily have to do with this site, but relate to me nonetheless: modeling "realistic" Pokemon in 3D to promote personal growth as an artist start a vlog on YouTube about how I balance school, parenting, creative passion and life release a video game that I can't talk about yet become an aquaponic farmer show more
