Daniel Thiger has recently shared the fourth part of his Substance Fundamentals series.
It is also worth noting that the guide covers both hard and natural surfaces. In the end, you will be given an understanding of how to create materials in Substance Designer from start to finish.
Tutorials in the Fundamentals series are great guides to mastering SD from the ground up. They feature some core lessons the artist has learned in his journey. “Essentially, they are a compilation of the resources I wish I had access to when I first started out. Each tutorial contains multiple examples, where I’ll be building from scratch, and narrating each step along the way. The focus is not on building complete materials, but on learning how to use nodes, and how to approach problems,” states Daniel.
