Now, we're ready to begin detailing our treasure chest! 

We will turn the fairly borning block of wood into a much more interesting, real-life-like object. This is a very fun part of the workflow, but be warned: it needs a lot of attention to detail.

The key is to be disciplined and apply the same level of detail to all parts of the treasure chest to get a uniform, realistic look.

Essential Techniques for all your Future Blender Projects

This simple, stylized treasure chest is a lot of fun to create! But understand that it's only a means to an end. The best part about this project is that it teaches you all the essential techniques and workflows for creating anything with Blender. After this course, you can apply what you learn here to endless Blender projects.

Tip: As you progress through the course. Think about how the methods can be applied to other projects. When you're done with your treasure chest, you will be equipped to tackle any object that's in your head.
