Paper Effect

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!


First of all, english is not my native language, sorry for any spelling/grammar mistakes.


I want to make cards like these: https://imgur.com/a/JOKAx#77


I know how to do the pixel art stuff and also how to darken the upper and lower edges, but I don't know how to achieve this paper effect. I tried using these brushes - https://www.brushking.eu/470/free-faded-splatters.html - as another layer on top of the card and then work somehow with blend effects. I also tried using the image noise tool, but also no luck.


Has anyone an idea on how to achieve this effect?

Thanks in advance for any answers!

There is a tutorial for crumpled paper but the images are missing.

It would be awesome if someone had a backup of this tute. Paper tutorials seem hard to find :(

I have a screen grab of the tutorial "Detailed Aged Parchment" - now in the Tutorial Graveyard. If anyone wants to repost. I'm missing, I  think, two images.

I'd very much appreciate the images you have :)

Hello @Azurexis and Welcome to the forum :)


After looking at your card example, I think it looks more like a textured piece of paper, so I had a play around.

Final result:




If it's not what you are looking for - no worries :)


Another paper texture example can be found here.
