About This Course
Improve your Texturing Strategies & Workflows
Shading Techniques I is the first course in a series that revolves around learning the foundational techniques behind texturing and shading. The workflows presented in part I focus on tri-planar projections, material assignments, and sourcing textures. Redshift is being used for rendering, but it doesn't matter if you're using a different render engine because all the main principles still apply.
In addition, we also have the wizard tower scene to practice with! This environment is designed to include a wide variety of texturing challenges and opportunities. Along the way, you'll learn about how to manage large scenes, work professionally within a pipeline, and make the most of your time through intelligent decision-making.
Beginner - Intermediate
No need to be a Houdini expert here - these lessons are designed to be very understandable. Be sure to visit Houdini for the New Artist though because we'll eventually be getting into intermediate-level topics.
