Textures

3D Objects

Especially as a professional artist or someone who doesn’t do 3D, primary saving time can be important. The best way to achieve this is to just not do the work. So don’t redo things that are already existing. I was never able to understand why people are doing pictures of the Eiffel Tower if chances are high that much better photos are already existing on the Internet.

HDRIs

HDRIs or Spherical images are a possibility to add lightning to a scene quickly or add some extra detail for more realism to the lightning.
