Welcome to this Substance Painter for beginners course!

Perfect for the beginners

In this introductory course about Substance Painter, we will discover all you need to get started with this software. We will start by getting some familiarity with the most common methods, while in the second part there will be a practical project of texturing using a 3D asset.

You will learn how to properly texture your object so you can develop a professional workflow.

Taught by Senior texture artists

You will be led by senior artists, with wide experience in the bussiness, such as movies like Batman vs Superman, Pacific Rim, Venom and much more. There will be no theoretical speeches, but real world methods and techniques, very well endorsed by high end professional standars.

Learn Hard Surface Texturing

During the second stage of the course, we will learn how to paint incredible looking textures in hard surface assets using Substance Painter. We´ll discuss how to develop our own materials from zero and learn what parts and aspects in the workflow are the one to get more attention depending on the final outcome.

PBR workflow

The creation and use of PBR materials will be covered too by learning how the metallic/roughness method works. We will stick to industry standars as always, so you get a more solid and controllable output. This kind of shaders are widely used in the film and games industry since many years ago.
