How to add texture to art tut by griffsnuff How to add texture to art tut by griffsnuff
Edit: Easier way to do this, since im to lazy to m ake a new tutorial. I have only done this in photoshop.

Click on the character layer while you hold ctrl, it will automatically select the shape, then go up to the layer with the texture and click on the mask icon.

------------

Ive gotten alot of questions on how i do this, and its about time i did a tutorial on how to do it xD

How do you get the texture without colors? I'm sorry for the stupid question xD I've never used a texture before and want to start.

Ohk XD
What you wanna do is download the texture and open it
then you wanna go to "Layer" at the top of PS 
then hover your mouse over "New adjustment Layer" 
and then go to "Black & White"
And it turns to black and white Q v Q
I hope that works for other versions of PhotoShop too q ^ q
I have PhotoShop CC 2014 XD 
But it's only a trial version sadly q q

The texture messes with my colors, that's probably because i'm a n00b 
and maybe even because of sai...

Oh yeah xc what you wanna do, to make it B & W is go to "Layer" on the very top, then scroll down to Luminescence to transparency
Buy make sure you are on the Texture layer or you are going to make the wrong layer B & W xD

You have to copy+paste the texture you want on SAI then make it an "Overlay" layer. It's pretty much the same as photoshop. :)
