Procedural wood progress

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, April 21, 2015, In : Tips 
Hey all!

This has been a challenge for quite a few years now - creating good looking wood with procedural textures. Only these last two months have I really been given the results I wanted. Below are a few exampls on how this has progressed:

While the above ones are not horrible, they still don't quite get the look I really want. No, that is below:

The grass isn't even close to being done, but the fence is and I am very very pleased with it. GOD is so good!!

As with the other tutorials having a similar cover, this is completely procedural textures (using nodes and directly applied).

Creating old wood with paint chipping off

I've always liked the rustic look. It's very antique-ish, lol. But getting it to look right using procedural textures only is where the challenge comes in.

Last week I posted here about how the wood alone looks and I showed you a scaled Node system, but today I want to show the progress made from that initial look to the finished product now representin' as my personal facebook cover.

Here is where it was last week:

Looked okay, but remember I felt that most of the lines were too uniform.

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen." Revelation 22:18-21
