Blender Tutorial | Easy Blender Animation For Beginners

Posted by Aidy Burrows on Jun 02, 2018

Do you remember opening Blender for the first time? Were you doing physics simulations and drawing cartoon faces within 10 minutes? If so, you can relive that experience in this video! 😀


Confession time – My kids are 6 & 8 years old, and they seem to hate Blender’s default cube. Or maybe they love it so much it makes them go crazy!

They make me punish that little guy in all kinds of crazy physics simulations and by the end of it they’re usually in fits of laughter.

Yup, little pyschopaths on my hands right? #savethedefaultcube


If you’ve been wanting to pass on the gift of 3D laughter to others (the little cube punishing monsters are everywhere!) and maybe you’ve been bookmarking potentials. I’m hoping you’ll consider this as a worthy fun option!


After this video you’ll know…


  • At least 2 methods of navigating around the 3D world
  • Physics Simulations
  • Grease Pencil Drawing
  • Working with keyframes in the Timeline and the Dopesheet.
  • Easy Quick Rendering in the 3D View.
  • An awkward relationship with the default cube.
  • And of course much more!
