Creating Denim in GIMP by fence-post Creating Denim in GIMP by fence-post
EDIT (April 23, 2007) : Finally got around to finishing the tutorial, which now includes not only creating the denim texture, but also the seams, wrinkles, and threads! I hope you'll be happy with the results. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out, if I do say so myself! The original tutorial has been deleted.

If you need the scanline pattern, you can download it here: www.deviantart.com/deviation/3…

This tutorial is in html format. Just download the zip file to a convenient location, like your desktop. Double-click the zip file and move the html file and the "Tutorial Images" folder to your desktop (the files folder and html file must be in the same location for the images to show up.) Double-click the html file and the tutorial will open.

Enjoy!

I design clothing for a virtual community. Is there any way I can scale the scan lines down to maybe 1.5 or so?

Actually, disregard my previous response. I tried it out and it doesn't look right. I did a quick scale of the pattern to a 3X3 in size (I had to touch up the individual pixels with the pencil tool) and then saved with a new name. It works fine and maybe it will be small enough for you. I don't know how much smaller you can get though.

You could probably scale it, but I don't know how well it would look. It might look fine, but here's another thing to try:

Open up the scanline pattern in GIMP (File > Open) - go to the patterns folder and find "diagscanline3.pat"
Then, set your foreground color to black
Grab the pencil tool and under the brushes tab, choose the "Circle (01) 3X3" brush
Zoom in really close on the pattern (800% or greater)
With the pencil tool click at points (1,0) (0,1) (4,3) & (3,4).
Save the pattern (or rename it as something else and save it - just in case you still want the other pattern)
Refresh your patterns and see how well that works.

Let me know if this works or if you need clarification.

Great tutorial. the tricky part is getting the wrinkle layer realistic enough.
What font did you use to write on your design?
Reply
:iconfence-post:
fence-post Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2007
Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, the wrinkles are definitely the tricky part. The font is called Scriptina....you can download it here: [link]

Let me know if you have any more questions!

Take care.

I'm having trouble with the scanline pattern. How can I make it bigger?

fence-post Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2007
Well, it would really be best to create a new one instead of trying to make the existing pattern bigger. How big of one are you needing?

The example size in your tutorial. It has a link. How could I make one myself?

Dang! That's great! I believe you're the first person to show me ANY results of this tutorial and it looks like you got a lot of great mileage from it. Glad you were able to put it to use. That's a nice set of drawings you got there. How come there were never any cute looking hybrid vampire/werewolf chicks when I was growing up? :D

Thanks for sharing.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I can't figure out a use for it either. It's one of things you put in a drawer and say, 'I'll keep this cuz I know I'll need it again'....then 20 years later you still haven't used it. But, at least you still saved it! :D
