Just a thought maybe some one should sticky it so it doesn’t get lost or somebody could make a sticky where people can put there tutorials. That would help a lot of people i think!

Hey thanks you guys - glad you all dig it

The on-line forums is where I learned my craft (big disbeliever in CG trade schools), so I wanted to try and give something back.

Hope the thread doesn't disappear.. keep them replys comin :D

I am not trying to start an argument but what is wrong with putting the tutorials here (http://wiki.cgsociety.org/index.php/Portal:Tutorials) rather than in a sticky? After all I believe that was the purpose.

Bah, what do you know about texturing? ;) Seriously though, quite nice tutorial you got there piggy, thanks a bunch :)

Thanks all

Oh man, that arm painting tutorial I did (I think that was about 4 years ago) was bad bad bad bad. If I remember right, it was like 90% dodge and burn stuff, which is just bad news.

It's great to tweak or *slightly* enhance a texture with those tools, but basing a whole texture around it just won't fly... jacks up the colors all weird..

Thanks again guys.. glad you all dig the tutorial

Better hope not... everyone has to start somewhere, but starting off on the wrong foot won't get you far. Using dodge and burn to paint highlights and shadows is a very bad habit to pick up. You're better off looking at general painting techniques and applying them to texturing instead of looking for specific tutorials for each thing you need to do.

That said, very informative tutorial AP. Nothing wrong with observing a great game artist at work :)

That would be the very reason I would like to view the tut with the d and b it is not as if I would settle with the technique.

Thanks Rybeck


Trust me.. all that old tutorial would show you is what NOT to do. I don't even think I have it on my HD anymore (for good reason :D).

You've really really got to 99% use color - dodge and burn are techniques derived from developing film. Would a photographer compose a photograph of all dodge and burn? :P

No way! So you shouldn't do it when you're painting either (in my opinion)

Ancient-Pig,


...
You've really really got to 99% use color - dodge and burn are techniques derived from developing film...

May I extend the topic, "use of color" if you don't mind? In production, what would be part of contribution as texture artisits? Are they given particular "style" or "mood" to recreate the the idea that has been raised from concept department? Or is it simply open to explore various use of color? All I have heard was quite vague, and I was always interested in how they really work... can you share it? (if it is possible...) Thanks in advance...



by the way, psd version rocks!
