Unreal Engine 4 Beginner Tutorial for Artists | Setting up Assets, Material Blending, and More!

Hey there everyone! After quite a long hiatus I’m finally back with another tutorial. Definitely going to take me a while to get used to this all again so excuse the quiet/nervous voice. I’ll be back to normal after a few uploads (I HOPE). In this video, I cover quite a bit. I was requested by my friend Chris to do a beginner level tutorial on Unreal Engine 4 covering various topics an artist would need to know. Time stamps for all the topics as well as links that will supply you with more information can be found under this paragraph. Hope this helps some of you get pointed in the right direction. Have a great day 😀

This tutorial was requested by my buddy Chris, be sure to check out his portfolio here: https://www.artstation.com/cflynn8081
