Using what you've learned from the Fundamentals of Materials and Shading course, add materials and shaders to the provided scene in order to create a believable render! 

You can use any render engine you wish - just be sure to complete every object! Watch the video above for the full set of instructions. 

How you will be graded:

  • Realism: Do the materials make the scene look believable?
  • Aesthetics: Do the shader and color choices used work in context with each other to tie the scene together in a pleasing way? 
  • Effort: Are all the objects shaded and is there obvious attention to detail? Did you do more than just tweak the Principled shader for each object? 

You can use the below image as a reference, but don't think that you have to copy it exactly! 

Experimentation and creativity is encouraged 👍
