Distressed Metal

Texturing Resource by Jeremy Engleman

Sample Clip

Distressed Metal (2 DVDs of textures and 1 DVD of training) contains 280 high resolution textures for the creation of all kinds of deteriorated and fatigued metal surfaces. Included are photographs of corroded metal, metal which has been painted, scratched metal, burnt metal, and severely damaged metal. Gnomon Workshop textures are high resolution and seamlessly tileable. This allows for the creation of texture pages of any size - from the small scale of a ragged cuff link up to the immense scale of a deteriorating oil refinery. Every texture has a corresponding bump and specular map. These have been manipulated to ensure a proper bump and specular response, and are not simply a grayscale version of the color map. The textures are entirely handled and stored in 24-bit TIFF format to avoid any compression artifacts normally associated with JPEG images. Also supplied are more than 150 features - texture maps with alpha masks that add richness and variety to any texture project. Included are features common to worn metal like paint, rust, bolts and more.

"As I have come to expect from the Gnomon Workshop, these DVDs are high quality, professional products. The texturing lessons are interesting and are especially useful for those who wish to learn a few new tricks... And of course the actual texture resources (the images, brushes, shaders, etc) are a fantastic addition to any artist's arsenal of tools. Unlike many texturing libraries available out there, the texture maps in this collection have been meticulously created so that they actually do their job correctly."
