Beach Sand with Pebbles – Material Study

100% Substance designer, rendered in blender EEVEE

Artstation post

This is one of the refreshing, holiday scenes that typically inspire me (and make me nostalgic when I live far from the ocean). I first tried to process in Substance Alchemist some sand and pebble surface scans I did in Brittany a while ago, but lighting conditions on the field were not perfect and my scans were not good either, so I went for a material study in Substance Designer instead. This is what I came up with.

The material is 100% procedural, created in Substance Designer and rendered in Blender Eevee.

Wow, lots of dust around here ! Time to refresh the gallery just a bit !

Here is a substance material I made for a VR train simulation and published on Artstation a while ago already.

This is 90% Substance Designer. I already had the gravels modeled separately in Blender for another project, I just baked and piled them up in Designer.

Rendered in Blender Eevee.
