If you’ll afford me a brief moment of shameless self-promotion, I’m quite pleased to announce that the 3rd edition of Blender For Dummies is now out and in the wild. This release is meant for Blender 2.74 and is quite a bit longer than previous editions, with more in-depth coverage for a lot of features, including many added since the 2nd edition was put out a couple years ago (like Cycles).
Of course, like all books in the Dummies series, Blender For Dummies is meant as a beginner’s reference. This means that it’s fairly light on tutorials. However, I’m rectifying that (as best as I can), by making a bunch of tutorials (some of which were included in previous editions) freely available on blenderbasics.com. The site just got relaunched, so content is thin there right now. However, I’ll be posting a new tutorial or article there each day for the next 10 days or so.
In any case, yeah… Blender For Dummies, 3rd edition. It’s out. You can purchase it just about anywhere that you can buy books. I wouldn’t mind if you let folks know.
