I'm not sure if this will be useful to anyone, but I thought I would upload it anyway.
A few months back someone suggested I try to add texture to skin when I paint realism stuff, so I created this to help with that. I find it can be pretty useful and have already used it on quite a few of my semi-realism art.
The best result so far being on this piece
And here on the apple
Though I still have a lot of refining to do to make it look even better!
If you want to use this go right ahead! I'd love to see what you used it in but you don't have to show me, but I would love some credit please and a link back to here so other people can find and use it too!
To use simply copy and paste the texture and place it on the layer above your skin layer, and then set the texture layer to multiply. then change the opacity to which ever you think looks best. Simple as that! It can also be resized and it is somewhat tile-able. I'll make a tutorial at some point on how to use this a little more in detail C:
I hope you have fun making skin! :')
