Simple Steps to Creating a Realistic Concrete Texture

Simple Steps to Creating a Realistic Concrete Texture

Textures have a variety of uses from web backgrounds and adding depth to artwork to games. Texture creation is a relatively simple process; in this tutorial I’ll show you how to create a realistic-looking concrete texture. The techniques used in this tutorial can be applied to the creation of many other textures.

Step 1 –

Open up Photoshop and create a new image with a resolution of 512×512 pixels and a white background. Select the Paint Bucket Tool and fill the background with a dark grey color (#333333).

Step 2 –

Next, we will create a new layer and use “Render –> Clouds” filter with a foreground color of (#333333) and background color of (#1c1c1c). Now, use the “Render -> Difference Clouds” filter a few times until you get a result like the one below:

Step 3 –

Now, select the Magic Wand Tool and with a tolerance of “1” select and delete pieces of the clouds until you have something like the image below:

Step 4 –

Photoshop layer styling is a great way to create effects. Select the layer you were just working on and make the following adjustments and set the layer’s opacity to 50%.

Now you should have something like the image below:

Step 5 –

To add more depth to the texture, why not add some pock marks? Create a new layer and fill it with white. Use the “Noise -> Add Noise” filter on the layer with the setting as follows: Amount – 35%, Uniform, and Monochromatic. Then, take the Magic Wand Tool and with the tolerance set at “1” and “Contiguous” unchecked, select a white pixel and delete.

From there, make the following changes to that layer’s style and set the layer’s fill opacity to 0%:

You will end up with an image like the one below:

Step 6 –

Finally, let’s add some stains to the texture to complete the effect. Set the foreground color to white (#FFFFFF) and the background color to black (#000000). Create a new layer and use the “Render -> Clouds” filter on it and set the opacity to 40%. You texture is now complete, experiment with adding color stains, larger pock-marks, or other effects using the techniques presented in this tutorial.
