Good afternoon.

I made a low poly rock and try to apply a texture with a bump effect, but the result looks not very realistic. What could be the problem?

with bumping

without bumping

shading nodes


------------------------- update --------------------------------------------

I changed Datail to 5.0 and scale to 26.0 and added MixRGB.


1 - fac = 0.5

2 - fac = 0.86

3 - fac = 0.95

  • $\begingroup$ Try using a checkerboard texture to see if there's no excessive stretching going on in the UV map. $\endgroup$ – Markus von Broady Jan 30 at 10:12
  • $\begingroup$ Increase the detail of your Noise Texture to 5 and increase the scale to something more like 20 or 30 and see if that helps. Also, use a MixRGB node to mix the Noise Texture heavily (like in the 98% area) with white before connecting it to the displacement node. $\endgroup$ – Christopher Bennett Jan 30 at 10:24
