Sand Texture/Tile

This Sand Texture was also based off TutsByKai’s instructions, thing is, I can’t do the same strokes he does and I also feel like gotta do the same six colors/variations thing

Sand Texture

So, the result is something I’m not sure looks like sand and I guess occupies too much space unlike the vid

Any suggestions how to do it right? Or it’s surprisingly okay?

(EDIT: Realized what was on the vid was 32x32 instead of 16x16, no wonder i couldn’t fit in as much)

I swear, both look better when in Tiled Mode
