    Post Lyzrd stomp's texture site [photoshop]

    This site has been on my bookmarks for ages. This man is an utter genius for texturing, design and general all round geeky coolness. Although it's intended for 3d modelling, there is so much I've used here for mapmaking.

    for example, take a look at his 'Dirty pitted metal' tutorial....pure gold. It's not metal, it's a landscape.....just change the colours!

    If you like Science Fiction...well then you'll be right at home without having to adapt the tutorials to fantasy.

    I'll second that one.

    I have come up with GIMP equivalents of most of his tutorials, as well. (And then I started reading his article on creating you own alien letters, and ended up getting completely sidetracked!)

    I'll have to look into this to "change out" them repetetive fill styles people have critiqued me about.

    It's really hard to repeat an organic fill style more than four or so times without the repeats showing. I find it much better to use filters, noise and/or high res digital photos to make a big organic texture that you don't have to tile.

    I would definitely go with as large of tiles as you can. The smaller the tile the more noticeable the repetition will be.

    And if you just have to use a small texture, multiply it ,or otherwise blend it with a larger noise layer to hide the small tiling.

    Absolutely, and a good use for the Render-->Clouds or Add Noise filters.
