SHADERS.XYZ is a forum created in an effort to unite all look-development nerds from the various render engines out there. The focus is on doing monthly material challenges whilst being as transparent as possible about your process. It’s all about learning from and sharing with like-minded people. To get started, choose a challenge. Start a habit, be one of the first to contribute!


The goal of the challenge? Replicate the material as closely as you can. All possible ways to get to the end result are allowed. The idea is to be as open as possible, so try to share the setup of the shaders in as much detail as you can. Make sure to vote on your favorite submission in the challenge. Winners will be announced every 1st of the month, along with the next challenge.
