I’ve been giving a lot of though lately to creating an asphalt material for my current projects. Lots of asphalt around Carlton. There are some materials and textures available online, but I wasn’t very happy with any of them. Besides, I’m trying to develop my skills as a texture artist.
I created this mostly with Filter Forge, which I upgraded after several years of neglecting it. Basically two different materials, one for the stones and one for the tar. Created a layered material in Vue and used an apha map to blend them. Fairly happy with the result.
