Easter/Spring Contest WIP

After many failed attempts at procedural textures I went the old texture painting route and doing the flower by hand. It’s a slow process but a fun one for sure!
I guess it would have been easier to project an image of a real flower on the UV but I wanted to do everything by hand this time with no shortcuts.
I’ve been avoiding texture painting like the plague but I cannot remember why… I’m really loving the process of it!

What I do when I see an interesting node texture setup. I create a screen dump like this one. Because browsing through a map with images goes faster.

Wow that’s a cool effect! Yeah I guess it would be helpful to create a file with screenshots of interesting nodes and their effect for reference in future work, that’s a good idea!

Very nice flower there Alex. Like the detail

I know that in the end I will like it Smiley
