Tutorial: Applying Texture by Shinerai Tutorial: Applying Texture by Shinerai
Something else people ask me a lot. I understand that most people know how to do this but, still, here is how I do it for those who may need help. :'<

I'm not very good at making tutorials, haha 3:

I hope someone finds it useful! I hope I didn't ramble in circles! Because I do that a LOT!

Thank you! I really should remake this tutorial, though! Now that my Photoshop isn't black XD

Pretty sure I just laughed hysterically at the little dragon character at the end. I don't know why.

How did you get that tale fade out?

Shinerai Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The dragon was on a separate layer: above the background and below the texture. I simply used the eraser and erased very lightly to get it to lighten up. Then I used the blur tool to blur it c:

This is great stuff! I've always wondered how you do this. I generally sat there with different brushes trying to achieve a similar affect. Wonderful!

and I will probably return to it because I still fail to understand applying textures...

This is great! I've always liked how your pictures have textures. ^^

Are the textures just big pictures you found or are they from a texture site?
Reply
:iconshinerai:
Shinerai Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
thanks!

it's kinda dangerous to just use pictures you found due to copyright laws. but there are plenty of texture websites like Mayang, CGTextures, and Textureking (you should be able to "i'm feeling lucky" google those). It's also pretty easy to take your own pics c: AND there are plenty of people on DA who offer textures for free use

I have always admired your style and love the textures that give a settle variation and interest to your work without distracting from the focal point. Ive been around a while and watching with our really commenting. I need materials and tutorials for archive file for my architectural drawing class. I'm still looking for marker tutorials and looking for your gallery if you happen to have spare time and feel like for filling a random request more tutorials of any media would be awesome. ......lol not that anyone would take requests from a random stalker X . x i mean..... watcher...

Awesome tutorial! I definitely learned something from all this :D

I have a question though o.o...
How did you make your photoshop all black? It looks so awesome and I was wondering if I could do that too.

Is that a downloadable skin for PS or did you just edit it? ^^;

Shinerai Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
oh, since my computer uses the windows classic theme (lol 90s), i edited the colors to be black and red. so this affects photoshop too :'D
