Just started learning some Substance Designer and I'm really loving it. It's technical enough to get my left brain satisfied, but then the right kicks in and the art happens for a great synergy.
After watching a bunch of tutorials and making a couple of basic materials I wanted to try my hand at a custom project. My friend Tyler Sorg was making a car and I saw that he needed a nice carbon fiber material. He was modeling the Koenigsegg One:1 and I took a look at some reference images to familiarize myself with the material. It was a basic weave with, you guessed it, fibers in the threads. Below is the material inside of Marmoset, Some keyshot renders can be seen here https://www.artstation.com/artwork/No4o1, and you can find the car renders from keyshot here... https://www.artstation.com/artwork/J3lRn
