A few more variations I did with Hetzens' cobblestone.

All are great but my favorite is the last.

That one is the last iteration. But I haven't finished yet, it's still too repetitive and turbulent.

I think your previous set was better, but that doesn't take away my appreciation of your rock work. These look a bit too artificial, and repetitive, as you said. Are you working on the planet or are these cubes? I mean, for lateral displacement and a setup/POV like this, cubes would work easier.

Yes I deviated too far from what I had in mind. I am working on the planet because cubes can only be used locally and I want a texture that I can apply anywhere. The biggest problem is the repetition because the cobblestone is very repetitive by itself and masking doesn't really work so far; the pattern keeps returning one way or another. But I will get there, give it a year or two. :)

Repeating patterns are a problem which is why I have requested a square fractal noise in the past.  You are very good at merging and blending noise I should keep on playing - you'll get there.  Those textures are fabulous btw.

Thanks, René. You'll get there, no doubt!

More tests

Better and better with each new iteration!

Impressive as always. I really dig the shader work. Well done

René

A few more experiments. The possibilities are endless, and only a few work.

Some of the surface effects you are getting on the vertical faces of the rock are really impressive!
