Wood stock walkthrough. *Please wait for animated gif to load. Please just note I don't go into full detail like settings, so maybe not for the total beginner. Oh yer this is my first tut on skinning, and also I suck at wood so this is like sharing my experimenting.

Image

Step 1

First of all I created a simple base texture using the classic sponge and shear method for the base(I did this on a seperate 512x512 canvas and then copy and paste)

Step 2


I added the shadows and highlights using dodge and burn acording to the light source.

Step 3

Defining the lighting a little more.

Step 4

I added a wood grain overlay at low opacity. Something I forgot to mention, keep all grain patterns going the direction of the stock.

Step 5

I added some stronger grain to the top and bottom using a 1px brush with a little random grunge.

Step 6

I made some contrast and colour edits. Looking at it now the bottom shadow looks a little strong, so try not to make my mistake.

Step 7

I know some draw the patterns free hand with the brush tool, but I prefer to use the pen tool set to paths. Basically draw a curved line with the pen tool then right click over it, and select stroke path then pick the brush option. It will follow the path with the brush you have selected at the time, so pick a brush after you draw the line. This step requires you to study some reference if you want to get it right.

Step 8

I carefully grunged the edges of the pattern lines and set the layer style to difference with opacity at 27%.

Step 9

Outlined the metal areas with a shadow.

Step 10

Added the metal. I won't be explaining this step as theres enough metal tutorials.

Step 11

Some edits and grunge added. With slight colour adjustment. Could be better but you get the idea.

Hope this helps! :wink:

Good tut, didn't work so well on the fore grip for me though since I didn't find many good pics for grain on it.
