Another Brick in The Wall ...

After a few people asked me to make this ... here it is, but if the Mods feel 2 brick wall tutorials is too much, no harm, no foul if it's locked

This tutorial relies on Chad's Concrete Tutorial Here To save time there's a texture you can copy and paste onto your canvas below:

Experimentation gives interesting results. Eg. When you do the first Brick Template, Effects >>> Noise >>> Median gives nice rounded corners to the bricks. Or Effects >>> Photo >>> Sharpen or Sharpen+ give some added depth to the textures. But use these sparingly

Apologies for the bump but something won't let me edit the first post to insert a new link without messing up all the other links ...

Thanks mate

... sometimes thought control is good ;)

I've got another couple of tutes being worked on ... I don't wanna seem like I'm flooding the forum with them. This is the fifth one I've published in 3 weeks

Nice end result DrewDale :)  A nice tut that can be used as a basis for other textures too. Well wrote Welshblue :)

By duplicating the final image then flip horizontal and setting the blend mode of the top duplicate to Additive,
I came up with a texture that looks like a driveway or path.

Nice result Drew' and Sasha ... thanks for trying it guys.

 

A bit more experimentation has gone in the mad laboratory ...

 

To have an algae effect on some of the bricks:

I won't be following this tut as of right now, but it sure is going to come in handy for my children's books.

So many tute's, I've forgotten what I've wrote and not keeping up.  

 

Great results and nice little extra touches from Sasha, Daniels and Vodka Princess (no matter how often I see that name I love it)

 

Nice text too from you both

 

Thanks guys

Great tut and great textures Welshy,

any ideas of how to get a scattered brick pattern?

I have tried Jitter, but didn't work well, then I create this line by line:

 

 

EDIT-1: I was using the wrong plugin, lol , it is actually the Jumble not Jitter, it gave me the required effect, my barin didn't get it right this time. :D

 

EDET-2: This is my result, it is a seamless Brick texture, thanks again Welshy:

Sorry YM ... not sure how I missed this.  

 

Thanks and great result.  

 

It's always pleasing to see a tute utilised to such a high degree and the users own spin put on it

Your tutorial is not a duplicate of a previous tutorial. Excellent work, welshblue. Using the brick plug-in can really save the effort of trying to create a brick texture manually. Superb :)

Your tutorial seems to be working for everyone else. However, I wanted to make some white bricks instead of the basic color, because I wanted to make a sort of real life Pink Floyd: The Wall. However, for me it seemed to be a bit of a mess, with the bricks appearing only white and grey, no depth inbetween the colors, with mysterious lines running through them. Any help?

Yeah. White textured bricks, like a realistic Pink Floyd The Wall.

ctrl+shift+g (black and white), then adjust brightness/contrast as you like. I recommend raising the brightness significantly, then adjusting contrast as you see fit.
