  • I'm No Bricklayer

    Hey everyone. I am illustrating what will look like a little city for a project I am working on. I need to make a bunch of downtown, brick buildings look somewhat realistic.

    Does anyone have any good ideas on how to make tiny brick? These are mostly older buildings with red brick, washed out and faded red brick.

    Any Ideas?

    do you have a particular program in mind for this? I saw something similar done in photoshop once, I will see if I can find the link.

          Mmmmmm...... gulp. Thanks for the tuts Morea. I will give this a shot. The problem might be the size that I need them to end up at. I'll try it though.

          Yeah its a pretty cool project PB, challenging, but fun.

            much bigger or much smaller?

            Seems like some of the techniques might work even at really small sizes... hope it helps some, anyway.

            Let us know how it goes!

                Right now I am working on a freelance project for one of the local brewerys in town. I had the labels forwarded to me and I was blown away with the detail in these vector images. One of them has a brick building in it so photorealastic it's scary. I will take a closer look at the file tonight and see if I can borrow some tips for you. No promises though, the files have been outlined and expanded, so picking through them is kinda a pain in the ass.
                Some advice is profound, some is clever. The above post is a good example of both.

                  Ok. Problem solved.

                  These bricks need to be soooooo small that all of that other stuff was going to be too much work. I found a way to make the noise filter work for me.

                  Thanks for the suggestions though!

                      I think it's Gin, but it could be Bourbon.
