Trying to "make" a dread texture using the existing shades I have it's starting to look like vomit.

Anyone have advice on how to do this or do I need to just scrap the colors I already have?

Disclaimer: Fairly new to this so if that answer is dreadfully (no pun intended) obvious and I'm missing it please show me to the light. Thanks Smile

Do you have an old original texture to test? Sometimes when messing with textures and saving and opening and saving we don't realize the settings may be making it more and more pixilated.

Another thing is to try a completely different texture material. Sometimes what you don't think will look right is excellent! Play with it. You may search YouTube and / or IMVU Groups for more help, too!

~Enjoy
