Can you create a fully procedural material? 

Your mission is to use what you've  learned so far in the Fundamentals of Texturing in Blender course to create a lava material using procedural textures. Here's what you need to do to complete this exercise:

  • Watch the video above
  • Download the lava-exercise_start.blend file below the video
  • Use at least 5 procedural textures to create a lava material
  • Make sure your material looks cool as heck
  • [Optional] Combine your nodes into an easy to use group node
  • [Optional] Check out Kent's Shader Forge chapter on lava for further ideas 
  • Submit a render of the shader or submit a screenshot that includes your node setup
