There are millions of realistic renders out there to make you feel down and I know how it feels. Here’s my story how I got back to the right track after getting demotivated (I wish I had taken materials seriously when I started).
A real story (from 2 years back)
I was blown away by the photorealistic renders 2 years back when I just started in the Blender world – a world of fun of course!
In fact, that was the reason I started taking CG Art seriously. I had high hopes as I googled some Blender tutorials.
But soon, I was disappointed and felt like quitting (Tell me you haven’t experienced it and I can show you a Martian Blender Artist). I even did quit Blender and had almost forgotten it for half a year and then, I stumbled upon the super-cool Blender short films.
It was the right stimulus I needed, so I decided to continue my journey further.
Soon, I was creating some average quality artworks, which actually didn’t work! I was just missing something.
I heard a lot about lighting and modelling and even materials. I worked like crazy to get those right, but still something was just not right. My renders were nothing more than inexperienced computer art.
I did a lot of research about lighting and modelling but what I didn’t try till then, was materials. Of course, I could make a metal shader in the materials panel, but it was crap!
When I jumped into some materials research. This time, I discovered something shocking – the node editor. It was one of the weirdest thing that could have happened. I mean, how did it hide from me for such a long time.
Nodes worked like magic! I was slowly started to see results which I had once only dreamt of.
I wish I knew it when I had just started and you can imagine, I could have had almost twice the experience I have right now in materials.
So, the reason I told you this story is, I don’t want you to undergo the same pain and frustration but only focus on – your purpose: producing art.
The tool should never be an obstacle. That is why I wrote this eBook, where I have revealed all the tricks and tips that have worked and worked like crazy.
