How to Texture a SNES in Blender


Get ready for a tutorial on texturing & lighting a Super Nintendo!

 Download Starter File

What You'll Learn:

  • How to Set Up Multiple Materials for a Single Object!
  • How to Use Curves to create Realistic Tangled Cables!
  • How to UV Unwrap & Texture Multiple Parts of a Model!

Here is the finished result of the tutorial!


In this second half of a 2-part tutorial about how to create a Super Nintendo in blender, we’ll go over how to set up materials, texture, and render a SNES scene. We’ll go over creating the cables by using curves as well. We then light and composite the final image.

As far as the “Instruction Booklet” is concerned, I have included the texture for it in the download materials for this tutorial. All I did was import the image using the “Images as planes” add-on, then I extruded one side to make it into a book shape. I then duplicated the entire shape, and scaled it down on the Z axis, several times, to create inner pages. The last thing I did was create a second “Paper” material, which was just a default white diffuse shader, and applied it to the inner paper pages. That’s it!

Also, here is the link to the Yo Frankie video game:

Happy Blending!
