“I found Oliver Villar’s book Learning Blender to be an essential tool in getting users not only acquainted with Blender but also in preparing them by explaining the history and the magic that has made Blender what it is now. His book also prepares users to be productive and informed by explaining the community and its various portals. His book is complete in explaining all the aspects of the UI and acquainting users with the classic G, S, and R. The exercises are perfect for getting users on the level to begin making their own worlds. I was even pleased to see him discussing F2, ripping with V, and even knife project, which are classics I usually consider to be more advanced. This book is a no-holds-barred approach to getting the most out of this capable little program. I must also add that the character created is attractive and well created and is a fine example of using the program for character modelling. Oliver is truly a skilled artist and that shines through in his use of this program. “
