Advanced Environment Texturing Methods in Photoshop

Description

In this course, I’ll take you through the techniques I’ve used and refined over the years to help me create very high quality, high resolution tiling photoreal diffuse textures using only Photoshop. I’ll start by explaining all the techniques individually, then move on to showing how I use all the techniques to take a texture from start to finish.

Best results are achieved using a pressure-sensitive tablet. Many techniques shown here don’t require the latest version of Photoshop.

The course won’t take hours to complete and you’ll see results immediately. I’m confident the methods I use aren’t found anywhere else online, so I’m certain you’ll learn something new!

The series is a work in progress, so expect new videos over time.
