Wood Texture with Realistic Grain - Amendment 1

Recommended Posts

This tutorial is available as a PDF. Click here to view or download it

 

There's a couple of wood tutorials here, but none with much 'life or soul to them'.  My own included.

This tutorial shows how to use Blurs to achieve a believable grain.  

Experimenting with the Gradient Block and Splinter plugins throws up some great results.

 

 

Plugins Needed: Diffuse Gradient Blocks splinter

 

We're going to make this:

@ johnnyD'. seerose, Red', SAND33P and Oceana ... thanks guys, glad you enjoyed it and will find it useful.  Quite proud of this one.  My best yet I think

 

JohnnyD' and seerose ... nice textures.  Thanks for taking the time.  JohnnyD' that brings sawn green oak to mind ... (cute son - make the most of him ... they soon grow and know everything  ;) )

 

Playing with Blend Modes gives pretty cool results:

@ Daniels ... thanks mate.  What can I say - I'm boring and find a plugin I like and hammer the hell out of it. ;)   

Looking forward to seeing what you do

 

@ Red ... thanks mate.  I think the results are pretty endless.  Depending how much time spent experimenting anyways.

There's a couple of added extras to the tut' to be put in over the weekend

@ David and Goon' ... many thanks - hopefully the few amendments/ additions I've got planned will show that a couple of clicks can change a texture to suit a need

 

@ JohnnyD' ... you're welcome.  Great texture

Just been playing around with this tut. The possibilities are endless depending on which blend modes you use, splinter, gradient blocks setting etc. But all based around the same method. Brilliant work Welshy. Here are a couple of my efforts -

Nice results Goon' and Oceana ... great 'glow' going on with the timber. Very believable textures

As you say Goon' ... infinite results depending on settings/ blend modes. Median can give a whole new look as the amended tut I'm going to do shows.

Thanks for trying it guys

You're welcome SeeRose.

 

Always nice to give a lil' bit back.  Great texture.  I love the flow and glow of the wood.

 

2 more amendments for totally different looking wood to come after I finish writing a couple of mini tuts;

I love what has been created so far from people on here. This is a highly realistic wood texture. Bookmarked for very near future use.
Thank you for your time to share with the community  Welshblue.  :trophy:

Thanks NN ... as I said a few more changes to be made, but after thinking about it ... would people rather I didn't so's they can experiment for themselves ?

Honestly @WB - I have no idea how to manage to master the 'steps' in the plugins like this and end up with such realistic textures.  Good functioning brain still up there in the cranium, me thinks.

 

I tried to do a little something different .....

My result from before the amendments:

I'll probably use this in a piece for my gallery (after I figure out some stuff w/ blender... that's not cheating, is it? :) )
