Im very new to blender and was following this tutorial.
I downloaded the guy's start file to start editing; I had to download the .blend file and textures separately. I don't necessarily want/need to apply the texture, however, without it, no matter what I do, my object shows up pink:
I have tried selecting all faces in Edit Mode or even just 1 face, creating a simple green material and assigning it as in this tutorial, but the material is not applied.
How can I make the object not pink anymore? How can I assign a material or texture?
