Eventhoguh this might not be the right place to post this, I would like to know if there is tutorials online about creating textures(how to draw them yourself). Because I'm no good at drawing so I would lik to learn some tricks.

Thanks in advance

There are a lot of textures for raytracers on the net. Maybe you could use them as base.

Well, I tend not to draw my own textures either. (If I do, I just draw stick figures 'cause I don't have the time to do elaborate work) I have a digital camera and I just take pictures of neat things / patterns around my house and do some editing and wa-la! photorealistic textures. But that's if you have a camera. If I can't take any pictures of something I want, I just go looking online and steal images off of websites that I think are neat http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif Space images make excellent backgrounds.

Thanks Daecho, I hadn't thought of using real life photo's, but that's also because I am a student and I don't have money for a digital camaera just yet =)
