Kemaru Posted November 7, 2008 Share Posted November 7, 2008 This tutorial is available as a PDF. Click here to view or download it I converted this from a PS tutorial. I thought this was a pretty good for realistic images, and pretty easy, too. Let's start! This is what we're trying to achieve: STEP 1: Open a new canvas at the size of 400x400. Take a light brown color as a primary color and a dark brown color as a secondary color. Run Render->Clouds :Clouds: on a new layer. The basic settings are just fine. Open a new layer, keep the light brown as your primary color, but change the secondary color to an even lighter brown. Run Clouds :Clouds: on your new layer. Now you should have two brownish layers plus the Background layer. Move the lighter layer on top and change the blending mode to Multiply and the opacity 180. Leave the darker one alone for now. Your leather should look a little something like this: Don't blend these two layers yet! STEP 2: Click the little checkboxes on the brown layers so you can't see them. Select the Background layer. Fill it with black. Run Noise->Add Noise :AddNoise: with these settings: Intensity: 100,00 Color Saturation: 0 Coverage: 100,00 After this run Gaussian blur :GaussianBlur: at Radius: 1. Now, run Motion blur :MotionBlur: with these settings: Angle: 135,00 Distance: 8 Leave the Centered checkbox checked. Now, run the Emboss :Emboss: plugin and change the Angle to -135,00. You're done with the Background layer! It should look like this: STEP 3: Now that you've done the background, select the dark brown layer. Change the opacity of this layer to 234. Look at your leather. Does it look like this? If it does, congratulations! Your leather is now ready! Flatten(ctrl+shift+F) your image and save!
