Thanks for doing this course, I recently subscribed to blender cloud and noticed a lot of the older courses are not as organized at this course and the recent courses, so I'm really hoping to see more courses take on this format rather than paying for courses on other platforms

Hi Simon. What's your opinion on procedural shaders vs image textures?
25th January 2021 - 10:59
@theartguymail They both have their place. I like the freedom and flexibility of procedural textures but for fast results and manual control image textures are extremely useful. A good workflow usually combines the two methods in my opinion. But it really depends on the artstyle as well, as they have different strangths.

Blender Cloud should follow this kind of structure for all courses.
