Trying out a new the "texture" technique. It's actually a lot of fun yet still a challenge to use the textures the right way.

Digital Painting

Haven't quite mastered the whole texturing thing, always find it looks a little odd...

Any tips on it ?

Yeah, it is a bit tricky.
I'd say just keep searching for the right texture on what you want to apply it to. Also, you can always modify it, erasing, painting on top of it, and combining it with other photos.

Good luck!

Thanks, yeah I think that's where I give up, i.e. finding the right texture. Often I just find it easier to just paint in the details.

Do you mainly just use cgtextures for your textures ? e.g. on this painting the buildings and stuff ?

Actually I don't go on CGTextures...Although I should probably start, haha.
I just use Google and make sure to manipulate he image so much, it becomes difficult to see the original.

But this is an older image, when I was just trying this method out for the first time. I'm going to upload a couple recent images, where I use textures with more painting on top to get what I want in the 1st place.

May I ask what the technique is?

Haha. It's the use of photo textures to fill a piece.
