Dear Friends:

I have been using lightwave for a few years, and I really love it.
I usually use beautiful surfaces and textures that are already in existence.
But now I wanna do something different, to create new original textures I
can use in my work.
Can you please give me advice on how to create new textures ?
Thank you !!!

Get a cam..
take some shots everywhere and on everything and get large storage for all the photos, ask for permission if you take close ups of people not knowing it:)
play around with photoshop a lot and learn to blend photos.
render out different procedurals, mix in photoshop.
learn to paint from scratch in photoshop, corel paint, zbrush and you will end up with lot of options to create your own stuff without stealing others:)

Now what I really should open this answer with would be....what on earth do you want to create textures for and what type of texture?
