100 texture studies by vesner 100 texture studies by vesner
Done and done!
It took a while but I'm finally done with the 100 texture studies challenge and I'm really happy about it. Usually it's done with spheres but I figured out it'd be more difficult and challenging if done on cubes.... and it was. Some of those were tiny nightmares to paint. All of them were made with brushes from my lazy brush set.

I'd be very grateful if you tried to name all of the 100 textures. I'd like to check if I managed to convey all of the materials and if people recognize them the way I planned to. If it's not the case then I still got a lot of work to do!
The first 5 people to properly recognize at least 95 out of 100 blocks were: ~Filougon, ~Palibyte, ~finiens, *PrinzNero and ~Shanyume

I encourage you to make your own texture studies. It's a great exercise to make your paintings more realistic. Remember though not to copy other people's studies! Instead of practicing you might end up repeating and even exaggerating their mistakes. Look for tips and solutions in other artists' works but reference real life objects and photos.
