New Course on Shading and Lighting a Car in Cycles


Brandon Hix presents his latest Blender training video, which focuses on lighting and shading car models.

Hello everyone, I'd like to share some exciting news about my new course on how to shade and light a car realistically in Cycles.

BlendMasters Vol. 2 - Shading and Lighting a Car in Cycles is a 3.5+ hour walkthrough of my process for creating a simple, but effective studio lighting setup and 9 custom shaders for Cycles that are essential for automotive renders. The course is very easy to follow and is taught on a beginner to intermediate level. With the course you will also receive all of my .blend files so you can follow along, a 39 page companion guide, and a special discount on The Cycles Encyclopedia generously provided by the guys over at

For the first week I am running a special deal so the course is only $25 and after that it will increase to $39 (offer valid until December 27). So I hope you will take a moment to check out the features page below and consider purchasing if you're interested. Thanks and happy Blending!
