BIONICLE: Next Generation Support Group

We are forming the Bionicle: Next Generation: Support Group. While the Blender Academy deals with one-on-one training in Blender, we are also doing something a little more broad. By joining the BNG: Support Group you are given access to many things including...

•Beta testing the Bionicle Arena game due out by January 2011
•Have a custom character appear in the Bionicle Arena game
•Be the first to see the movies we create and give us your opinion before it is released to the general public
•Monthly BNG newsletters (if you want)
•Appearance in the BNG comic series being written by Lewa Krom
•Be eligible for the BNG Writer's Club (coming soon)
•More in the works!

All we ask in return is that, once a month you try to complete a unit in Blender 3D: Noob to Pro tutorial all the way through Unit III. After that, you'll be able to join BNG as a modeler or animator. If you need assistance, we have some experts who would be glad to take the time to help you (*cough* glares at Phantax for no particular reason ).

If you really want to become a primary modeler/animator or help with a game, you can finish Unit IV in the tutorial and then take this brief tutorial if you're interested in game making: Blender 3D: Blending into Python

By doing one unit a month, you get full membership in BNG as well as any and all benefits that come with it! From someone who's taken most of the tutorial, I can say it's not incredibly difficult and you actually feel like you're getting the hang of it by halfway through the first unit.

Also, current BNGers. I'll be making a mandate of this upon those who I'm are not busy this summer (Busy meaning Nusua or Krayce - they amongst a few others will be exempt from this mandate) to also do the same work that the members of our Support Group will be doing. As I have been quoted "I have a dream that one day everyone will be able to 3D model and 3D animate."

By learning this stuff, I'm not asking you to be particularly good at it, just being able to understand things when people talk about meshes and baking and stuff like that as well as being able to help render something should somebody need you to do it.

So with that: It's summer. That's roughly 3 months of free time. Chances are you could finish the 3 units by the end of the month by putting in less than an hour a day. I'm not asking for much. Just a minimum.

And who knows - maybe BNG will be more successful than anyone thought before!

I'm not a 3D modeler, so nope, sorry.

That post was supposed to be from me... my sister was on, and I went on. XD

I can help with 3D modelling, voices, music, whatever you need, I may not be a "pro", but I can do quite a bit.

As Pik has already said, he's a pretty fair programmer, and so is Spacedude, and I believe that TST is as well. I can photoshop pretty well, but I'm no Bio fan, so count me out. Razz

But if programmers is what you really need, those three are your boys.

J-Red's right, they're very good with GIMP and such, and all three program games.
