Rock, Paper, Scissors : Blender Tutorial


This is a little animation short created in Blender using Cycles for the CGMasters competition. The original tutorial project was going to run WAAAAY too long. This is an attempt to just show some of the methods used to create the idea while keeping the tutorial at a manageable length.


Part 1 – Construction

  • Basic organic modelling
  • Modelling, UVing and 3D Painting a simple tree trunk
  • Making the long tree root
  • Some auto-generation methods for nature

Part 2 – Effects

  • Creating the emerging root effect
  • Using the dynamic paint features
