Practicing with textures after watching this guy. Wasn't able to use the filters and stuff he did though bc I'm using SAI lol
GIMP has most of the features he's using and it's a much better software for textures than SAI.
Thanks for the video, it has lots of neat tricks and I've always wondered what it would be like to take a digital art class of some sort. The video really feels like you're in the class.
Your attempt looks pretty fine and dandy, though the shading on the flat surfaces of the bricks looks a bit soft.
The guy talked about how to add more definition in the beginning of the video and I think you did it on the upper surface but with the bricks it's actually more noticeable when it's not done because there's more dimension in them.
Also small tip: sharp outwards edges will often have some some of thin highlight (He mentioned it in the video and the thickness of that highlight will define the sharpness of the edge (thicker highlight -> softer edge), but they will never be darker. The cracks do look really good, they have a lot of depth.
I'm sounding like a teacher aren't I. Sorry :p
