hello everybody, i'm in a situation here, i have 3 days to texture this character and i know leather is very difficult to achieve realisticly. his trenchcoat is 90 percent leather so its gotta be good. any suggestions like shaders, layered shaders, specific textures, websites or any ideas you have it would be greatly appreciated. specific types of rendering would help as well. i'm working w/ maya, and doing a displacement w/ zbrush. thank you!

Well you could try using photos seeing you need to go "realistic".

You could try a simple flat leather tuture and then overlay shadow and highlight detail over the top. Or alternatively, you could try and texture it using direct photo ref from a coat for example ( with all the creases and folds in place from the photo... if that makes sense?
