Pre-order Jonathan’s Character Development in Blender Book!

Our very own Jonathan Williamson has gone off and written a fantastic book on Character Development in Blender. Being that Jonathan is also an owner of this site we get the chance to offer direct pre-orders of the book here on Blender Cookie! To help spice up the pre-order and fight against the other commercial giants. Each pre-order sold from Blender Cookie will be personally signed by Jonathan Williamson, and also include a 10% discount code towards a Citizen Membership.

Jonathan has been hitting the Gym hard to get that hand ready to sign a few copies. Well that is what he is saying anyways….

We are no longer accepting orders on this product. You may purchase this book though on Amazon directly

This book is intended to provide an ample introduction to character modeling for both beginning artists and more advanced Blender users.


The book starts by giving a beginner overview of the Blender interface and many of its tools. It then goes on to begin the actual character modeling process, showing each step of the way, getting progressively more advanced with each step.


In this book you will find info on box modeling, poly-by-poly modeling, sculpting, retopology, normal map baking, and more. At the end of the book you will be left with a complete character model based off the excellent concept by David Revoy

  • A signed copy of Jonathan’s book

      As long as USPS can deliver there then we sure can! I don’t believe there are any problems. If USPS cannot deliver to South Africa then we can make special arrangements with UPS.

    I’m curious how this differs from the training videos. IT loks like a lot of the same topics.

    I’m not hating, I’m just wondering.
