I was looking into making some procedural textures using nodes, but every tutorial ends in a monstrosity like this one (and the image just shows half of it):
Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing because of the power of making something completely modifiable to the smallest detail. But then I remembered “Blender can also use DIY patterns” and then made this in less than 5 minutes:
Obviously is doesn’t generate as much detail as a procedural texture, but for the stuff I make you’ll hardly notice any difference.
TL;DR: sometimes being lazy does pay
