Am interested.

Provide, Mike, provide. Thanks

you need photoshop,great patience,and steady hand...:)

it took me 15min....for best water puddles images and try to do the same shape....


Well Mike, it's nice technique and fast. But, to be 100% honest, it was not exactly what I'd expected. I thought you did puddles in 3D (regions, solids or whatever), giving them high reflectivity or even water material for correct reflection on it. In the suggested tutorial video there was a part, where author did several "faked" reflections (telephone booth, commercial signs etc.) I'll try to do some tests if real puddles will give similar results.

not even 3d max vray could do that...:D  but very are just adding the finishes touches to your image...:)....try it with a cloudy misty can down load wet pavements textures from


Or just use a material.

I think this was a mix of "Renee's Asphalt" and Granite Procedural.


Now this I love.

nice alternative...but it doesn't give a  great control where the puddles are on the road....normally puddles are by the street kerb because of the dip in the road to collect rain water ,very rarely in the middle of the road. 

That is its drawbacks. Just another option.

Could also combine both methods and use a larger hand painted mask to fine tune it.


Now that looks more familiar, except it's not deep enough.

"Yes. We used to hide a little soft toy bear called Fret in our sets back in the day when we used photography. We then created a 3D version of Fret and included him in many of our renders. If you have a look at the images in my Ambus 2014 album, you…"

"Do you ever hide stuff in your scenes? I used to have my dog Joey in EVERY render. Sometimes an icon on a monitor or in a window reflection, or book cover."
