You can use this technique to create your own models or to modify the ready ones downloaded from the internet. Learn how to create different moods and seasons in just a few clicks.

    This is part 1 of the tutorial where you will learn the random distribution of colours and textures. You can also use it on any other multiple models which need random colours like tiles, candy, or pebbles. Modifiers used: MaterialPerElement and VertexPaint.

    Hey KayBur. I'm rather a technical guy, I'm sure that CG artists who publish their works here can do much much better job than me. But thank you, it was nice to hear.
