🎨 [Free Chapter] Layered Grungy Materials in Blender

Published about 1 month agoΒ β€’Β 1 min read

Hey Reader,

Zach here,

Today, I'm excited to share that we are making two workflows from our new Urban Environments course available for free.

In this course, our new teacher, Cov Phillips, teaches powerful Blender workflows to create a full city street environment from scratch, focused on intermediate 3D artists.

​Click here to check out the course​


Workflow #1 - Creating a Reference Guide

First, we have a short chapter on building a reference guide for your city scene.

This chapter is vital because it helps you plan the design of your environment first, and then you can simply focus on building the scene, hassle-free.

The great thing, this workflow applies to any 3D project, not just city environments, so a very vital skill to learn as a 3D artist.

Workflow #2 - Layered Grungy Material

For the 2nd free workflow, you can watch the first 6 lessons (~50 mins of content) of a comprehensive texturing chapter.

Here you'll learn a powerful texturing workflow for making realistic materials in Blender.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Create a base plaster material with realistic textures
  • Adding color variation to the material
  • Adding weathering to the material
  • Adding layered damage to the material

The great news is, even though this workflow is shown later in the course, you can still follow a long by downloading all the project files attached to the lessons, and put into practice Cov's powerful texturing workflow.

Early Bird Bonus

If you are excited to fully enroll into the course, you can still get the early bird bonus robots with 4 looping animations to populate your scenes and add even more life to it.

Just make sure to enroll till March 10th, 2024, where the early bird phase ends.

Count down to 2024-03-10T23:00:00.000Z​

See you inside!

Hey Reader, Zach here, If you are struggling to find the motivation to learn 3D, or if you have abandoned projects and courses half way, you are most definitely not alone. In fact, I believe it is the most common struggle all artists go through. This also happened to Tetiana Markov, one of our passionate CG Boost students and challenge participants. We were very excited to interview her, to share her story of how she overcame all kinds of self-doubt and got her work featured on Blender Nation...

Hey Reader, Zach here, For the past 6 years, our tutor Martin Klekner has been hard at work, exploring all the possible ways to create epic 3D environments in Blender. As a personal challenge, he tried it without the use of any paid add-ons, the results of all his research he accumulated in his Master 3D Environments in Blender course. 3D scenes you learn to create in the environment course. As Martin’s challenge and his course prove - making awesome, grand scale landscapes in Blender is...

Hey Reader, Zach here, You might know the fear of a blank 3D scene. Finding yourself just staring at the Default Cube in Blender and not knowing how to get to an amazing cinematic animation that you imagined. You’re not alone. Our instructor Cov Phillips has just released a very scary (it's a horror animation) video about dealing with such obstacles on his YouTube channel. In this video, he shares his creative process and vital tips on structuring and finishing a large project, by breaking it...
