I will help you start moving in 3D, showing you how to navigate Blender’s 3D viewport and how to add, remove, and manipulate objects. Additionally I’ll introduce you to Blender interface, helping you overcome it’s quirks and use them to your advantage. Next steps? If these Blender Basics have piqued your interest then the next step is to learn modeling. Lucky for you we have a complete course designed just to get you started with the Fundamentals of Mesh Modeling in Blender. The mesh modeling fundamentals is a part of our membership, which is built specifically for aspiring Blender artists like yourself, enabling you to ramp up your skills quick through clear, concise, and structured learning. If you’re using Blender with anything but a 3-button mouse, then read this page to learn how to Emulate a 3-button Mouse.

Yeah no, don’t watch this if you want to learn to model for games. This instructor focuses on art for offline rendering so if you follow him your head will be filled with fallacies such as “triangles are bad, use quad only”. Avoid like the plague.
