Mattershots: Instagram Inspiration for the Substance Community
Evolution & initial growth of Mattershots
Hi, I’m Nicolas Paulhac, product manager of Substance 3D Assets and colors and material designer. A few months ago we created Mattershots, an Instagram account that I feed every day with a selection of images of materials, colors, and manufacturing processes to inspire material lovers in their creation of textures with Substance.
Today, just a few months after its creation, Mattershots has more than 550 images and an ever-growing community.
The reason for Mattershots lies precisely at this point: we believe in cross-pollination so that everyone can feed on what is done in “neighbor universes”, whether you are an environment artist, surface artist, architect, CMF designer or color and trim designer. We select images every day from matter-oriented content that we find inspiring in order to form a basis in which everyone can pick up elements to make mood boards and other documents of definition of style, artistic direction or simply, we hope, references for the realization of digital textures.
We’d love to see all these materials become Substance materials, so do not hesitate to send us your creations or post them on Substance 3D Community Assets.
