Making marks

This week I plan to work on creating some textures to use in my digital images and modelling projects. I’ll be using a variety of techniques to make these.

Some will be made using traditional media, then scanned and edited digitally for optimising. I will draw others in a digital sketchbook app –  though these too will go through some further processing before I add them to my collection of textures.

Along the way I’ll be testing them out with some quick digital doodles. This will give me a feel for how well the textures work before I start optimising them for more creative uses 🙂

I quite like the results in this quick test, though I think I’ll scale the texture down some before using it in earnest.
