alexbes lays down some serious PBR knowledge

alexbes dominated one of our previous PBR (Physically based rendering) challenges by winning in both categories. We asked him to answer a couple of questions about his design work, and he was very generous with his time, sparing no detail and going in-depth into his workflow. Bookmark this great interview and share it with your friends, because it really is a goldmine of PBR knowledge.
