Thanks! I used water soluble colored pencils and then a wet brush.

Here's a grass texture. I need to redo this and ScreenFlow the process.

Thanks Jess!

No just to record the process of painting that.

Thanks Krhiven! Glad someone digs the stuff.

Here's that walkthrough of how I did this texture. It's not the exact same one so it might look a little different. But it's the identical process.

Please do Pix! Just a heads up make sure to spend some time (more than I did for the video) on the blade of grass or a few blades to get them looking awesome. That reduces any heavy art lifting you have to do later.

Read some Avenging Spider-Man the other day and got really inspired to make a weapon. Might take this in ZBrush at some point.

Digging this latest stuff man; you're really improving a lot. The one thing I can say is that I think you're relying too much on black for your shadows. I'd say experiment a bit more with adding color into your shading and see how that works. I also could be completely full of shit (most of the time I am).

Thanks Max. I mainly work in grey/grayscale for a portion of time. That's probably where that's coming from. I'll try to start with color from step 1 on the next piece. Hopefully that will fix that issue.

In the past I've had trouble just with value let alone colors. So I decided to just get a good handle on values then work in colors. Thanks again for the critique.

I like the style, very unique. Also, the grass is looking good.

I was trying to make this grass texture in past days, but I don't get such good results, but I found the technique very useful for other types of textures, spreading rocks, making full base texture by only using small bits from photo texture, which is very useful indeed.
