Hey guys!

Andrew here from GarageFarm.NET Academy.

I would like to share with you a new DJ’s Blender tutorial.

How to make rocks in Blender 2.9+ with rock generator addon

In this tutorial DJ shows how to enable a pre-installed addon called ‘rock generator’ (now it is a part of a larger addon ‘Add Mesh: Extra Objects’) and use it to procedurally create rocks of a different sort (using a preset of sandstone as an example.)

Every 3d asset needs textures to look good in the final render so in the next step DJ shows a quick and dirty way of texturing your rocks without the need of any UV unwrapping !

Rocks tend to erode and turn to sand (sometimes the other way around as well) so putting our stones in a desert environment seems like a perfect idea for a 3d scene.

The last part of the tutorial covers the creation of desert dunes using blender’s ocean modifier and texturing it with CC0 textures. Finally lighting the scene with the new Ni****a Sky texture in the World setup (adding sun motion with simple keyframes.)

I hope you will find it useful.

Happy rendering!
