An Introduction to Blender Shader Nodes for Beginners

CGMatter shows us how to use shader nodes to create materials.

Shading nodes could be a stumbling block for new users in any software. While amazingly powerful, it does have a bit of a learning curve in understanding how nodes work, and how nodes work within the context of creating materials. That is why whenever there is a shader nodes tutorial designed for beginners, it’s a great topic to post.

Have a look at this tutorial from CGMatter who covers shader nodes in his latest multi-part tutorial series. “In this blender series, I show you how to use shader nodes to create materials,” CGMatter says. The tutorials cover creating both procedural and non-procedural materials. “we talk about what a material really is (a node network) and how information is sent from one node to another.”
