Top 10 Best Blender YouTube Channels for 3D Artists (Part 1)

Top 10 Blender Channels on YouTube

Blender’s online community is strong and active. Here are our Top 10 favorite YouTube channels for Blender video tips and tutorials.

This comes in no short order as it relates to knowledge and information about the software. There are mountains and mountains of awesome content and tutorials about Blender, and most of it is completely free and on YouTube.

This is a list of the ten channels that really helped you get up to speed on Blender.

Now, as is typically the case when discussing “excellent sites to get started with Blender,” I’m going to go over some of the more well-known options, such as BlenderGuru or CG Geek. These are fantastic channels, and I strongly advise you to check them out. However, I wanted to spotlight a few of the lesser-known or up-and-coming channels for 3D Artists.

1. Polyfjord

Polyfjord is definitely one of my favorite Blender channels. He hasn’t done a ton of tutorials yet, but the ones he has done have definitely changed the way I use Blender. I feel like his videos really capture the essence of what makes Blender special in terms of its feature set. He finds methods and ways to use certain things that I wouldn’t have thought of on my own. And, because he’s a good teacher, you retain the information.

2. InLightVFX

InLightVFX is another channel that may not have a huge library yet, but what’s there is truly fantastic. This is a channel that I’m excited to watch as it grows. The thing that I enjoy most about this channel is that the workflows and techniques presented and taught will have you up-and-running in professional environments, as Blender is still kind of incorrectly looked at as more of a hobbyist tool. The techniques you’ll learn and the way it’s presented brings Blender (as a software) into a more production-based echelon, which it’s more than capable of.

3. CGBoost

CGBoost is definitely one of those channels that provides a wealth of information that you often feel like you should be paying for. While Zach Reinhardt (the host of the channel) does have some paid courses available, he gives quite a bit of his information away for free. I think my favorite part of his channel is that it covers advanced and beginner topics quite evenly. This recent action editor rigging tutorial blew my mind.

4. Peter France

Peter France is someone who you may recognize as a member of the Corridor Crew over at Corridor Digital, but he has his own channel where he hands out some of his easily digestible and impressively efficient techniques for getting super fun and interesting renders. Every time he’s dropped a video on his channel, I learn something I didn’t know Blender could do. I just hope he’s able to find the time to make more amazing content for this channel soon.

5. PopNerd

PopNerd is a newer, much smaller channel than the others (so far). However, the information on this channel is terrific for beginner Blender users, and there are definitely some new tricks for advanced users in here as well. My favorite thing about this channel is that most of the videos are short, and there are no wasted words or time in them. Usually within six to eight minutes, you’ve learned some cool new tricks and learned to make an impressive render.

Part 2 will come soon. But if you want to watch more interesting videos you can click here.
