Sure, post it.

Really as long as you've been keeping things simple, and not using soft shadows or gradients anything you make is likely fine.

As you don't appear to be trying to make BDcraft style textures I'm not sure what feedback you expect.

If you like what you've done and enjoy making it keep doing it :slight_smile:

Well, the linked videos specifically show you how to make PureBD styled textures. Drawing shapes, adding effects. There isn't really much else to it.

Besides that all you can do to learn to make PureBD textures is to download some of the PSDs that are available from Useful Resources to Sphaxify and explore the layers, and effects.

Once you've had a look around at some files then try to replicate some of them yourself. After that you can just keep building upon it for any textures for mods you want to make.

They're okay, but you seem to be missing the concept of lighting.

All BDcraft textures are lit from the top left corner, meaning the top left should generally be lighter than the bottom right. Usually achieved with a light inner shadow.

I would take another look at the main pack's diamond again and more closely try to replicate the shading.

If you would prefer to replicate the simple diamond design you could alternatively look at:

Code: Select all
