Learn How To Design and Create a Robot

In this 2-hour, in-depth tutorial you will learn how to Design and Create a Robot.

We will begin by talking about design and some of the core elements that will make up our character. We will use these to help guide us and answer questions that come up as we progress. Then we will get into creating, starting off with blocking out our main shapes while using our core design elements to guide us as we go. We'll continue to add more information to these hard surface forms, and I'll intersperse more design ideas as we progress to break up our design principles into more manageable sections. Then we'll finish off with little bits of polish.

If you would like, you can follow along with me as I will be explaining every step as I go. Or you can use the information here to design and create your very own robot.
