I wanted to start a sketchbook here for feedback and to track my progress primarily focusing on the 2d side of things. Here are two hand painted textures I've done recently. I would GREATLY appreciate any critiques and advice, I think hand painting textures has become a drug of sorts for me. I cant get enough of it.
A standard stone brick:
Some tree bark:
Heres a unique map for a rock with some moss (I'll update the texture and post the model per critiques):
I have a few that need some more love before posting. More to come.
[EDIT] After looking at these on another monitor other than my cintiq, seems the levels and colors are a bit off, I tried to update them to compensate. I need to find/make an action that compensates for the darker screened older model cintiqs.
