Custom Textures

I’ve always wondered how people get/create custom textures. Do they make them by scratch, or do they get them from a site that offers textures?

I’ve been looking for a place to get custom textures for awhile, could anyone lead me in the right direction?

The mappers encyclopedia. It’s the sticky in this section.

Thanks, I’ll try, but as far as I know, most people tell others to avoid this guy.

I’ll try it though.

Or you could have not been an ass and just link me to it or even copy/paste what was from there to here.

3killphilips has helped me through alot of things

I don’t know who told you to avoid 3killphilips, because he is the best source sdk teacher on youtube.

Anyway, I think I have what I need. Thanks everyone.

Forget all you have learnt from him and learn from reliable sources.

As for textures, i use a combination of cgtextures.com, gimp, and vtfedit.

Yeah, most of his tutorials seem outdated now too. I’m about to work on some more in-detail.
