Texture Modifying Help

5y
#1
I will start this off by stating that I am not computer savvy at all, and my artistic ability is even worse. However, I do want to try my hand at creating a few custom textures. That is about as far as I got because I have absolutely no idea what type of program/software would be the best for this sort of thing. So if you know of any tools I can use to create custom textures, please comment below. It will be much appreciated by myself, as well as any others with zero artistic talent.

I use Inkscape which is free for Linux, Windows, and macOS. Any paint program will do that can save in transparent .png format. If you use Windows, paint dot net is an easy one for getting started. You can export the existing textures and modify them a bit. Make sure the sizes line up.

I do inkscape, I have a question: how do you do the semispheres like on capitol? I have NO IDEA at ALL.
I love to give feedback and suggest new things!

idk, you just draw it lol. There isn't a special tool for it. For the capitol, I took the dome i made for the atmosphere condenser and made it bigger. See if this helps:

I start by drawing a straight line using the "Draw Bezier and straight lines" tool. Then switch to "Edit paths by nodes tool." Move the cursor over the straight line then click the line once. The tool should change from a arrow to an arrow with a hand. You'll be able to stretch the straight line into a curve.

I know, but where do you stretch it?

How do you take stuff without saving it into a new file and importing it?

That's a good question for google, youtube, or inkscape specific forums. https://forum.inkscapecommunity.com/

If you want to find inspiration just google what you're looking for and add 'isometric' to the search.
