In this course, instructor Alan Thorn takes you through the basics of modeling inside of Blender, as well as texturing with the free image manipulation software Gimp. Using these tools, you’ll learn his complete asset-creation pipeline for this modular set. We then follow it up by learning how to import those assets into Unity, and set up our own playable game environment.
