MARI has become the new standard in texture painting and a revolutionary addition to the production pipelines in many studios.

With the release of MARI 2.0, the texture painting experience has not just improved but in fact its been completely overhauled to incorporate some tools, techniques and workflows you’ll probably recognize.

In this MARI training, we will walk through each and every basic feature of MARI, and work to get you up to speed and painting in no time. This tutorial will cover in detail MARI’s projection based painting workflow and all of the tools and techniques that you’ll need to be successful.

Along the way, we’ll be learning about many of the exciting new features inside of MARI 2.0 including a personal favorite: the inclusion of layers and a true layer based workflow. We’ll learn about this and many other new features, including adjustment layers, procedural layers and much much more.

Whether you are a MARI veteran or a MARI newcomer, this tutorial has something for everyone. Strap in, warm up your painting and get ready to learn.
