Materials Model

This is a modified model that I found online a long time ago (if you recognize it, let me know so I can give credit where it’s due). I use it for renders of testing materials because I feel like it gives a nice sense of what the material will look like on flat surfaces, curved surfaces, large surfaces, and small detailed surfaces. The texture on the interior sphere includes light values for 100%, 50%, and 25% so you can get a sense of how bright or dark your material is no matter what the brightness of the scene is.

Feel free to download it and even pass it around – but make sure you link back to this page!
