Free Water Normal Maps by Trompe Loeil

Free Water Normal Maps by Trompe Loeil

A few weeks ago I blogged a water tutorial that required you guys to download the Flood plugin for photoshop. Today I’m blogging a tutorial that will let you play with water inworld, instead of photoshop.

The talented and very generous Cory Edo of Trompe Loeil has released 10 water normal maps for free which you can use to play around with inworld.

I decided to make a quick video to show you guys how I used them for the image in this post. It’s so simple and I’m sure will improve our inworld water pictures tremendously. Here’s the link to the video on youtube, and I’m also embedding it below: http://youtu.be/fx42Guezipg

You can pick up the water normal maps on marketplace for free. And here are some links to Trompe Loeil in case you’d like to stalk Cory:

    Silver, I actually use http://www.picmonkey.com whenever I want to add rain in my pictures. They have it under the water menu. Here’s a quick edit I did adding rain to the pic in this post: http://grabilla.com/04604-e6446610-5c17-4ed0-b869-860106ade668.png
