About the Author

Benjamin Bailey

I am a young creative artist with a dream to conquer the world with my ideas. I love singing, writing, drawing, and modeling in 3D - and I'm ready to put these skills to use.


  1. Great to see Cgcookie get some more tutorials. Right now it is one of my favorite learning hubs for Blender

  2. Yes, me too! Um, er, though I haven't actually seen these two I may get around to it though.

  3. Hey guys,

    Thank you for the support/plugs on BlenderNation and thank you for the site comments! I really appreciate the support and have been humbled by the Blender Community. You guys are awesome.



  4. Cool tutorial, however I'd ask of the author to use the, i believe, the JKEY in the render window to switch between previous and current render, just to highlight changes made in place. Sometimes minor changes are hard to notice between renders.

  5. If anyone from cgcookie read this: could you make a tutorial on how to have different levels of specularity on different textures *but* on the same material? for example you want to have a dirty piece of metal which has specularity on the clean part but not specular on the dirty part.
