The material pit of doom

Hi, Everyone!

I’ve been practicing Blender for a while now and the most common problem I run into between every project is that I get stuck in tweaking the procedural materials all the time.

Just pushing the ‘slider’ a bit to the left or right changes everything so much that I want to keep pushing them for hours… How do you get out of this time consuming pit?

Stop pushing the sliders, train your self control. Work on other aspects that are lagging behind because of fiddling with materials.

Thanks for the tip!

I kind of came up with my own strategy to stop pushing those sliders. I’m now trying to come up with the materials before I start modelling. I know this kind of switches the classic workflow, but I’m not really into the classic CG, more into look development, where everything kind of starts with materials.

Thank you again @kesonmis and good luck!

it is part of the learning proceds. keep fiddling to help yourself understand it.
