Alwyn is also passionate about mentoring students. In his eight week online workshop “Animal Skin and Scales in Mari 2.6”, Alwyn will help you research and develop your own texture library and create a character back story for the creature model provided (if you want to bring your own model, you can).  You will learn to work within Mari to create fine displacement maps and tileable textures. By the end of the workshop, you'll have a fully textured, rendered model for your portfolio and really know your way around the powerful Mari software.
