Tutorial - Embossing Texture by Kharnage Tutorial - Embossing Texture by Kharnage
Alright, as promised, a tiny tutorial on how I apply alot of my detailed texture so quickly. It's a tiny tutorial because to be honest with you, it's piss easy to do, and once you realise it's in there, you'll wonder how the fuck you managed without it.

Originally Nebezial gave me the idea to utilise it, so props to him for showing how it was done on dragons. I believe he uses it a ton on his armor designs to amazing effect.

I'm abit more subtle with my use of it though, and tend to apply it sparingly. Like any method, overuse of this will ruin your artwork, so by all means experiment, but when using it proffessionally, don't over do it. Less is more.

Hope you guys like!

do you maybe have any idea on how to do this in Painttool Sai??

Not the artist but a long time SAI user.  Sorry to say you can't do this in SAI, that's why for some things you will need to use Photoshop or an equivalent that has embossing, texture fiddling and brush options.

ah, thank you! it's a pain SAI doesn't have options like this, I myself can't work with Photoshop at all, I just can't figure out the controlls. thank you again for taking the time to answer my question!

No problem!  I think it can be troubling, but there's are several really great youtube videos and image tutorials out there if ever you decide you had some time to fiddle with it.  :)
