Thanks for your interest in the new series which will be available on DVD once I complete all 12 chapters at www.jasonwelsh.com.
This series is aimed at new students that are interested in 3D but cannot afford the programs or the equipments necessary to get started.
I will be using open source software for this series starting with Blender 2.5, an amazing piece of software that has undergone a huge transformation with it's interface.
The difference with this series is that it is broken up in units so if you wanted to do the assignments you could. (of course you will also have to grade them) ;)
Lesson files can be found here:
Hope you enjoy the new series as it unfolds.
