Materials are a critical element in 3D. The shape of any object is altered by the shape perception added by the material. In other words, you can make the best looking terrain or scene, but without quality materials it will lack dramatic visual appeal.

Boost your arsenal with classified techniques employed by the QuadSpinner Foundry, where the alchemy of complex and highly unique materials is top priority. Materials: Your Secret Weapon is a 6-part training series that explores different material categories – each volume building on the content of the previous installment.

In this kick-off intermediate video, presenter Dax Pandhi will walk you through the process of creating your own artillery, beginning with rock.
