Hey all, was looking through some texturing tutorials and was inspired to try some toon texturing. Now, I've never, ever even thought about cartoon art even since I first dug into 2D texturing.

So anyways, I wanted to get some feedback on how I did. I was pretty proud of these, especially since these were not hand painted. I showed it to a few people I knew, and most said 'nice hand painting!'. I did it all by mouse, no lies.

Here's the first one - some sort of mud rock. This was my official first...



And here's the second - some sort of 'normal' rock. I didn't really like this one as much, but it was fun anyhow.



What type of toon textures should I do next to get my practice going? For instance, concrete, plants, etc.

I'd really love some feedback Thanks!

Oh, and here's the tutorial I was inspired by (by Jonathan Fletcher, found on the Polycount forums).

Ha great mate!

Everything needs a base of proof. But you must believe to accomplish it. Wich is one hell of a paradox.

Tried to do some wood - It didn't turn out too well, but I think the idea was right. Again, this is not hand painted; it's all by mouse

For mouse drawing, I have to say its pretty good (much better than i can do with a mouse).

If I have any crits, it would have to be that there's not enough depth in the wood, it looks very flat, like there's not enough variation in the color (like you did in the brick). other than that, it looks pretty good. Maybe its a preference thing, but that's just what I think.

Yeah, the wood did turn out quite shallow. Thanks for the criticism

The only other detail problem I seem to have is with a bevelled look as well as a lighting effect, as you can see in Fletcher's tutorial.

Redid the stone texture from my first post. Turned out much better, IMO.



You may notice that a lot of the crack outlines are the same. Reason being - I saved the original outline of the mud rock as an overlay. So, each time I start a texture similar to that mud rock, I use that overlay and edit it a little The only texture I didn't use it on was the wood, which I'm going to redo as well.

EDIT: The wood looks surprisingly good in 3D

Yes, it's a texture... Or do you mean, can you use it in 2D...?

Anyways, I finally bought a Wacom Bamboo Tablet yesterday. It's hard to get used to, and the results are the same as mouse work, yet it's a whole bunch easier. What type of toon textures should I make next?

EDIT: Like a gravel road, dirt, asphalt?
