WHY IS LEARNING MATERIAL RENDERING IMPORTANT?

PLACEHOLDER How to show that the object is silver and not iron? And if it is covered with transparent slime through which bright light passes?

The transfer of volume, texture and texture is one of the key skills of a 2D artist. No character, object, or building design is complete without skin, wood, metal, glass, or other material. In addition, drawing materials is especially in demand on the Russian game development market, where an artist needs to be able to do everything: both draw concepts and paint them authentically.

Those who want to...

  

  • Paint believable materials

  • Paint objects faster

  • Understand what gives materials their unique looks

  • Create new images for their gallery

  • Receive weekly feedback from a professional
