After you finish this series, can you make more detailed tutorials about those examples you used in this series, not just some quick breakdowns please?

*@Huân Lê-Vương* You can find the detailed examples that go in-depth in the workflow examples: https://cloud.blender.org/p/procedural-shading/5f074df172ae9adbb2a82634
They cover most of the things I talk about in the main video series, but to be able to show everything, I also have a bunch of smaller examples. I won't go in-depth into those too, but I'm also providing the files along with the videos and the techniques (regarding the shader editor) are all explained in the course and with the workflow examples.
If you have a specific question regarding a file, you can always ask it in the comments and I'll answer once I see it :)
