Hey this might be the wrong place but I have a question about creating textures.
I would love to spend some of my free time creating textures for CSGO, my ultimate goal would be to make my own maps but I want to wait till I am a bit better at the game so I will have a better understanding of how maps work well. In the mean time I want to make textures so I can help others with their maps. Where would I start? It was difficult finding any information online, most websites skip the creation of the textures and go straight to telling me how to get them into hammer. That's not what I want to know. I want to know where I would begin if I wanted to create, say, my own brick texture. What programs would be recommended? I have experience in GIMP and am excited to look into blender but it would help if I knew what to prioritise.
Any help is appreciated!
