Hi Dude,
I'm new to blender and searched for such a trutorial :)

But I've a little problem, can't change the mesh into a subsurface curve, there is not such an option in the mesh panel.
Would great if someone could tell me what I have made wrong.
Nevertheless tremendous tutorial!

This looks really good. But, I just downloaded Blender yesterday and am trying out this tutorial at the moment. As of now, I don't know what a "'scale' widget" is. Nothing I've tried is lengthening it like it should. Sooo.... I think I'll leave it alone for a while.

Scale widget would be the S key I believe. I'd suggest not leaving blender alone too much, as it's interface needs time to grow on you. I'd say grabbing some of the mesh modelling tutorials out on the web would be a place to find the key references.

Thats really neat :)

Ive got 2 questions:

1- Is Blender3d free?
2- Can you color the object in Blender, or do you have to do it is PS/GIMP, etc.
Ci-Daemon's avatar
1-yes, [link]
2-yes, it's called using materials (or texturing for multiple colors/patterns)
