The stone on the left looks good, like smooth slate. The stone on the right looks more like glass. Even straight slabs of stone won't be that perfect. Make the outline of pieces more irregular and add more defining texture to them. I can see you're using a texture brush. Those are good but you have to know how to use them.
Omg Thank you so much, this was really helpful! And the warning note is noted. I will not post what I don't have permission to post. However, I wasn't going for stone buildings. I was looking more into modern buildings. Its supposed to be a city. But these are good resources and I'll look into constructing stone buildings instead. It may fit the composition better. I'm going to change the giant orb ball into a really beautiful orange sky (if i can make a sky). So thank you.
Ok cool thank you! I wasn't exactly looking for stone structure, I wanted more modern buildings but i seem to have given the impression of drawing stone buildings, since you're not the first person to think they were stone. so I think I'll look into that. So I'm curious about this overlay layer. I'm not to sure I know how to do that. If you don't mind, could you explain what an overlay layer is and how its made?
Ok sure I have only worked with Photoshop though and i don't know how other programs do this, so I'm just gonna tell you how to do it with photoshop lol ^_^;;
1) Paint onto the first layer the shape and color of the object 2) make another layer 3) there should be a drop down box above your layers, click it and look for "overlay" 4) Now paste on the textured picture.
If you want, change that overlay layer back to normal to see the difference. Mess around with it. ^_^
