#WeeklyDrills 021 - Chocolate Material
For this week’s drill, I decided to create a material with Substance Designer. This is the first material I made without using a tutorial and it was not as difficult as I thought. It was quite fun to figure out which nodes to use and how to use them.

Third Place
