    Yeah, I'd love to take part and contribute something, but I have no clue how to do anything, so some tutorials would be nice. Or just some links. Some direction.

    Well, for the TF2 style of texturing... I present you the ultimate guide to TF2 style

    But if you mean how to work your average (GNU) Image Manipulation Program, I suggest you download GIMP (because it's FREE) and learn how to use it. Just for heavens sake don't enter something made in ms paint, pleeeeease.

    My bad Youme, I didn't want to make it sound like I wasn't listening to you. I just didn't see anybody say something one way or the other after me, so I wanted to reiterate my point.

    Overlays definatly count as textures, however I think we'll do a competition for normal wall/ceiling/floor textures and then at a later time one just for signs.

    What file types does VTF edit accept when it turns them into VTFs? I don't use it as I have PS and the plugin for it but if that only accepts .TGA files like I think then by asking for VTF files only we can eliminate anything made with paint, because lets face it, if it was made in paint its not going to be very good.

    If and when I get a proper contest thread up I will include as many links to existing tutorials/references/useful programs/etc as posible to make it extra easy for you lot.
    Those with graphics tablets like myself have a big advantage with the painterly effect but I'm sure its posible without splashing out on a tablet, I'll and find a tutorial on paintbrush stokes if I can, if not I'll try and patch something together myself (It won't be fantastic if I do though)

    Watch this space I'm 95% certain we'll at least set up a texturing competition in the next week or so

    or you should make an competition every 3 weeks orso, but always a different theme,

    Theme 1, create a rock texture

    Theme 2, create a concrete texture

    something like that

    Unfortunately, VTFEdit can import png and jpg (to my knowledge, I think there's more.)

    Well its not so bad, you can submit something made with MS paint, just don't expect us to like it or for it to win ;)
