PHOTOSHOP TUTORIAL: Making GOOD camouflauge

Postby Xhiea on Sat Mar 26, 2005 6:55 pm

I MADE THIS TUTORIAL, PLEASE DO NOT POST IT ANYWHERE ELSE.

Here is a quick and easy guide to make good camo:

Step 1:

Open a new file any size you want, during this tutorial ill be using a 500x500 square.

2. Make your background colour #005E20 and your forground colour #8DC63F

3. go to filter>render>clouds

Image

4. go to filter>render>difference clouds, repeat this step until you get a result that looks like this:

Image

5. Go to filter>artistic>cutout and set the setting to this:

no. of levels: 8
edge simplicity: 0
Edge fidelity: 0

and you should get something like this:

Image

6. Go to filter>noise>median and set Radius to 3

and you should get this:

Image

7. go to filter>artistic>dry brush and set to these settings:

Brish size: 2
Brish detail: 8
Texture: 1

you should get this:

Image

Look what happens when you overlay it onto objects, such as weapon skins for counter strike source!

Image


Enjoy, i will update this tutorial as i make it more like camo ;)
