Create asphalt and concrete textures: Pixel Playground

Creating asphalt and concrete textures

Continuing with the series of tips from his digital painting Oyster Bar, this week Bert teaches us how to create its rough, weathered asphalt and concrete textures.

Not surprisingly, these textures are the result of applying a series of Photoshop filters—a powerful way to quickly generate effects in Photoshop. The asphalt text is unique because Bert uses the Fresco filter in order to give the appearance of wetness the rainy scene calls for. The concrete texture is the result of a combination of multiple Craquelure and Texturizer filters.

Watch this week’s movie to start exploring the textures possible with combinations of Photoshop filters, and be sure to check back next week when Bert explores how he created the realistic manhole cover in the Oyster Bar painting.
