Sketchdump #311 – Material Study (terracotta & tuff stone)
The terracotta tiles were rather straightforward to paint after looking at some references.
Tuff Stone – this one was surprisingly hard (or more like: time consuming) to make look ok. I thought it would be a base tone with some patches and spots indicating the airy structure, but looking at it up close like this, it took a bit more than that. As with all studies, I’d like to spend like 3 more hours on it to polish it, but time waits for no one etc etc! Not even for tuff stone. The three sides are referenced from 3 different pictures, hence the difference in roughness/color (3-in-1, yay). Tuff comes in many more shapes and colors.
