Simple Wood Texture With Paint.NET - A Tutorial for Team Fortress 2.

Just a simple wood texture made on Paint.NET (no plug-ins required)

1. Draw Squiggly lines using 2 wood like colors depending on the light/ dark colors of wood you want... 2. Use the motion blur tool on the image, with a direction of 0.00, and a distance of 43 3. Add noise, numbers in order of appearance on screen, intensity 22, color saturation 0, coverage 52.5 4. Radial blur, angle 2, center 2,2 , and last quality all the way up 5. Cut out the middle of the texture, (to reduce the blurry edges) 6. Use the sharpen tool, as many times as you need... 7. To make the edges of wood (i.e. the market gardener nubs) use the tool under distort, called twist, keep the settings default and it will twist the middle of the image inward... The pictures are examples of finished products, also what some of them would look like with a bumpmap This is simple yet complex enough to match the TF2 art style! You may actually be able to make a sort of brushed metal texture if you changes the colors to variations of grey
