Here a very simple and easy tips how to mixed hair texture from 2 basic colors. Recommended to beginner who wanted to mixed and match texture

Recommended tools
Selection tools - Lasso

1) Choose any 2 plain textures (you can download the plain texture from google image searh :mrgreen: ). For this sample I choose black & white texture

2) Open the textures in Paint.NET. Using lasso tool, select any part of the image. Then, create crack patern or any kind of parterns you want. Copy the selection part

3) Go to another texture, add new layer and paste the selection part:-

Basis Eye Textures Tuts

First of all, credit to UnlikelyAngel1 from Paint.NET Tutorials group because I got the idea created eye textures using Paint.NET from her tips. And also credit to Keef, because I always used his tutorials as my references.

Required tools:-
  • Noise - Add Noise

  • Blur - Motion Blur

  • Distort - Polar Transformation


Eye Uvmap:-
Image

  • 1.Open Canvas 256 X 256 - white as a background (Fyi, the retina part of the eye is actually no pure white). Add new layer to create a horizontal thick lines (75pxl). Leave some space at the top. You can use uvmap to tweaked grid space that would be left. Here I'm using blue:-
Image

*Ignore Malay language in the picture (I posted this tuts in Malay in my blog :p. But some of my post I'd wrote in English too)
  • 2.On the 2nd layer with the blue grid used Add Noice (Effect>Noise>Add Noise) set the intensity & color saturation:-
Image
  • 3. Then, used Motion Blurr effect (Effect>Blur>Motion Blur)to get below result:-
Image
  • 4. How to change the horizontal lines become rounded lines? Used Polar Transfromation effect (Effect>Distort>Polar Transformation) change the blue grid to rounded thick lines. Follow below setting:-
Image

  • 5. Add new layer and create another horizontal thick lines (smaller than 2nd layer; size 35pxl or 50pxl ) on the top of the canvas.
Image
  • 6. Apply polar transformation, adjust the size in Scale what size you want
Image
  • 7. Create lense effect you like
Image
  • 8. Add new layer. Create random pinstripe to produce eye veins using paintbrush or pencil effect:
Image
  • 9. Blend the veins by adjusting Layer Properties (Tab>Layer>Layer Properties or press F4). Adjust Layer Opacity:
Image
  • 10. Save in .jpeg and test the texture in Create Mode
Image
  • 11. You can adjust or add more effect. Add new layer, create a curved boundary at the center of the canvas. Filled dark color on the top of the canvas. Use Gaussian Blur effect to blend the curved boundary (Blur>Gaussian Blur (20 pxl))
Image
  • 12.Save & apply in create mod
Image
