Dose anyone have some knowledge of creating realistic texture/materials from scratch. A decent rubber texture for tyres is what I am looking for. This is what I have so far…….

Its beautiful! :X
congrats for your work , about the texture what do you mean by "from scratch" you will render the texture in the 3d program or photoshop?
In photoshop you may aply the basic colors for the car tires or whatever, then in multiply aply a texturized brush, or choose a texture make it tileable with offset then warp or displace filter.

Many thanks for your comments and suggestions, is very much appreciated :-BD

Nanaris: what I meant by "from scratch" is a composite material made from layers much like you would create in Photoshop, there is a small screen shot of how the material was made.Many thanks for your time. :smile:

Mircea: Thanks for the vote of confidence :smile: can’t take all the credit tho this is tutorial based SDS modeling with my own ideas as well.

RichieMB: Many thanks for the links thay are a good starting point :smile: .But keeping away from presets at the moment want to increase my understanding of materials and textures.

Finally got the result what I was looking for with a few of hours playing and reading.

Tire rubber is infused with a protective material known as carbon black, also referred to by those in the auto industry as a "competitive absorber." The purpose of the carbon black is to absorb sunlight on the surface of the tire, and deflect it from the inner polymers of the tire.
