f you are new to blender, blender can be overwhelming, there so much to learn and choosing where to start is difficult, in this course i will help you make that choice by getting you started in the most used part of blender, making materials.

every model, every render you make will fill incomplete with out materials, after all have you ever seen any object in real like without materials.

this is going to be a continuing series as blender keeps on changing so should the training materials and thats what this will be, i will constantly update the course material where necessary or on your request, especially because i made this course because it was constantly requested on my live streams.
