I made a wood guide because someone asked me how I did it in one of my works. Thought it could be a good exercise because I couldn’t really remember myself how I did it.
I focused more on why wood patterns are like they are instead of the actual steps to create a pattern. You know, teach a man how to fish and so on.
I only used the Charcoal_Rock_Soft brush for all the illustration. It’s a basic brush, so everyone should be able to reproduce this. With some textured brushes or bristle brushes you can probably get some amazing realistic wood patterns and textures but I focused on a simple stylized pattern instead since everyone who can do realistic painting, probably doesn’t need my guide anymore x3.
PS: There is already a simple brush called Texture_Wood_Fiber in Krita that could be already enough for some people.
