I made this tut a long time ago but it has since fallen out of the forums. I see people asking how to do it again so I'm recreating the thread. I hope it helps! Very Happy

If you have any questions... or suggestions for tutorials... please always feel free to ask for them I'm always looking for things to do that have not been done yet. I really enjoy setting up the basics for people and then watching what they can expand it into.


p.s. I've been trying to put all my tuts in one place so if you are looking for them and for many other great dev's tutorials you can find them
Here.


The link I posted is the original texture tutorial directory. It has been cleaned up and organized in a new thread you can find HERE.

I don't have any videos on youttube but most of what I do can be translated to gimp fairly easy. If you are experienced with gimp. I don't use gimp often. Usually if I do it is because someone asked how a certain feature compares or works in gimp that I mention in one of my tutorials.

If you have a question about any steps in particular that you don't know where to find them in gimp then feel free to ask. I should be able to help figure it out or maybe even someone else reading the forums may answer.

I decided to add this as an addition to my original tutorial in order to show how to add light to a wall texture that already exists using 2 slightly different techniques.

These work best of you have created a wall texture that is tialable.

I always use the second (eraser) method. It's so much quicker and natural looking than the render method.

Adjusting the layer with the perspective handle gives good results.

I prefer making my own layers and drawing the effects over using a tool that may appear the same for every user who clicks it. I like originality. BUT I do also understand while gaining experience and practicing new skills it's sometimes nice to have a few things (one's that may be a bit more advanced or that take a more artistic touch than what has been developed so far) in a premade "click here" type tool. So I showed two ways on this one. My biggest suggestion for people is to play with the programs. Make lots of "safety layers" or copies of layers in case your playing is a disaster... then you just delete what you messed up and still have copies of what you started with. But explore and have fun... don't be afraid to ask "what does this button do?" and then CLICK IT!

Ok... so we have seen some basics on molding and lighting... I was asked how do you make a shiny mettalic paint on a stucco wall texture. So I guess I can use it as an addition to my other wall tuts.

I don't know Corel PSP so I would have to suggest using "Method 2" shown a little further down the page. (image 13) You should be able to translate those filters and it gives you more control over exactly where you want the light and shadow to show.

If anyone else knows the filters in Corel PSP and can show us where the equivalent to the render lighting is that would be great!

Here is an alternate method for creating the sliver of light in the first tutorial



In the final step I clicked the eraser about 15 times in one spot to get the fade I liked.

You can click: Edit>Transfom and then scale, skew, distort, perspective or warp to modify this shape after you have created it if you need too.
