This lesson focuses on learning the basics of Blender, while also building a unique Minecraft character through the use of 3D objects, materials, and all the tools in between. It also incorporates the mathematical side of how 3D objects work, including the relationship between X, Y, and Z grid coordinates and the three-dimensional planes of Blender.
