This series of step-by-step videos were developed with new MARI artists in mind so we will be moving at a steady, easy-to-follow pace making sure you understand terms and basic techniques. We'll start off by learning how to create and work with MARI projects and then how we can navigate the MARI interface. We'll then begin exploring many critical aspects of MARI. We'll learn how to make selections, understand what channels and shaders are and why they are important. Then we'll look at the basics of painting and the paint buffer, using a layer based workflow, masking techniques, and many other concepts that will provide you with a solid foundational understanding of MARI and its capabilities. Software required: MARI 2.5v2.
