View Full Version : Torn leather?

12 December 2003, 05:32 PM
I want to make this leather piece look worn and torn.
i don't have a problem doing that. The thing is that i want to keep the mesh pretty clean. Does womeone know a way of doing this in a nice way.

Mebbe it's a stupid question but maybe someone out there have a really good way of doing this :).

Displacement mapping is the route to go

Do a search on this here in the search option, or in the help file of your app

A lot of it is in the texturing too. Older leather, especially if it's been in the rain a lot, will start to develop odd discolorations, maybe a little green. But yeah, definitely most notable thing is that it breaks up like crazy.
