Hi all! For this tutorial you will need Photoshop and a Wacom tablet.

If you find this tutorial helpful and end up using it, let me know! I'd love to see what you make :squee:
 
This trimester I’ve been working on the UI and art assets for the game development project I am currently working on at uni. To fit in our theme I’ve had to branch out and learn to paint a whole bunch of different textures that I haven’t had to before. One of these textures was a copper disc for the in-game construction nodes. Needless to say, it was not the easiest thing to find tutorials on this so I thought I’d create my own.

Excellent step by step and it looks as though it could be adapted for other metal looks as well.

Yes, I think it could certainly be adapted. The principles are pretty much the same for other metals with a few subtle differences.
