CREATING YOUR OWN TEXTURES COURSE

If you haven’t joined the party, jump on in!! The course is self-paced, and you may download the videos as well as all of the PDF instructions to use at any time.

You will learn how to create your own textures and then modify them for even more textures! Use Photoshop filters, brushes, Procreate on iPad, and your smartphone to create/photograph textures, and then modify or change those textures with plug-in software, brushes, phone apps, and by blending multiple textures, using gradient maps, changing color palettes, and much more. Module 9 will contain LOTS of techniques to create textures by hand at home with free or inexpensive supplies – mostly things you’ll find around the house!

Modules 1-6 are released and people are creating some awesome new textures! Modules 7, 8 & 9 are planned to be released before the end of June. We already have Module 10 for Resources. AND…also included with the course are several group chats – we’ve had one so far and there will be a couple more as modules are rolled out. The first one was recorded and has been added to the Resource module for those who could not attend “live”. We also have a private Facebook group just for course participants to share creations and ideas and ask questions.

The first six modules contain almost six hours of video tutorials PLUS the written PDF instructions, AND over 100 texture images!

And...in the future when I add new material or update any materials in the course, you will be able to access the new material all for the same low price (I already have some new ideas and techniques I want to add to the early modules)!

Don’t wait…the base price will be increasing once the last Module is released!
