So this is a way that should assign montealto, though, create on the ground. 7. L06 Adding detail by using Texture Paint: Lesson six, adding detail by using textual. So we need to act details to the inner balls. That is, we'll create Blank's by painting under the box Some groups between Give us but efecto as the blanks wouldn't blank something. Let's see how so Select the box. Go, go picture pink. No, if you're in the object Mortal William, you can go to the tech shipment more. Andi, you can select the bone. No year. The wood is roughness, so it's a lip color, so the color would has been select. Now what? I wanted one of those growths to beat it. The first thing what I'll do is I'll increase the breast size that is to 20 wave approximately take. So I'm taking 25 now the color If you get your you get color. Used the eyedropper and sell it dark color from the actually and you can make it more dark but pulling it down slightly. Okay, no, in this area really waded into one cool and three. So before that, what we lose will goto the pool's strokes and see that this spoke matter is Lane so we can blow street Lee. I didn't need to come here. Pick it. Me?

Onda only kept this particular clean in the land of cutting this thing. Mitchell worship, do you want? You can cooked it so quickly. Finish this very quickly and press enter. Now we'll do your piece. It's like the select tool and select this unwanted faces rested on direct peace. But this is all we can really 30. Next thing is, we give a thickness Put this place so select the plane. Go to your modifiers had more differs solidify and we would thickness off zero point and zero point people. That team who get a different shape for the don't next is Ah, well, let's kill this box and create some copies. So select this. That's come out of the gate would be a more now bless, shipped and consider all the boss objects moving tentacles that everything is selected. Do you from Okay, well, this one this just so we select all the trips. Okay, that scale it down slightly and then place it on the ground. Who it's lately Here. This is however you want to place.

See that your objects are not intersecting with each other. So keep that in mind. Try to zooming on war Move it Police We just placing this thing late So I created some copies off it on placed it Now we'll come back to my shading. Let's see, Are we in the shooting locating chick? Just the best angle to Baker final round So I think so. This is looking good now this is looking good Just that the plane is stinker selected. What? Modeling slipped a plane? I'm more Get it on that Texas 1 80 diseases plane. So go to your shading more. That's fine. No particular in the What do you of you and the airport then that image image Save a copy. We'll say we just final render if you want with the bag along, So in flim If you deactivate this, you get it with the bathroom. So again you you rendered I see it this copy final and zero so you can have a transparent background for the later on. You can add some different BG sport. So this is how we completed our lessons off creating a wooden crate in blender who pointed hope you enjoyed the lessons and hope you learned a lot from this Syrian the next course so
