This tutorial is based on a request by Christian Key to demonstrate how I would go about texturing a model of a rock face (which he has kindly provided). This tutorial will be split over a couple of days due to current time constraints.
Part 2, part 3
While I understand that there are infinite different ways in which this could be done, this is the method that I would use.
I will not be focusing on the basic principles of how to apply textures here, as this is covered in a wide number of other places, and will probably just add confusion to the subject. If you are having problems with any part of this tutorial, please feel free to send me a message and ill help you the best I can.
Software that will be used is the following:
- Photoshop CS5.1 Extended
- Lightwave 10.1
- Vue 9 Infinite
So first step, lets take a look at the model.
