Hi! I'm Umberto Gnocchi, a freelance 3D artist from Italy (www.be.net/umbertognocchi). Shading & lighting are two of my favourite topics about 3D art, so, here we are again with yet another visual study about materials, light and composition!
This time I wanted to do everything from scratch and I modeled this very complex hard surface object: a brick, whit not one but three holes. Impressive uh?
Ok, besides jokes, I made a polystyrene procedural material, and I'm quite happy with the final result. It's based on a Voronoi texture, you will find the node setup at the end of this post.
This is the node setup, slightly different than the one used for the bricks, is just more glossy, and white of course. I hope you like it!
