10 Top Texturing Tips :: Tutorial

Hey there,

One of our friends at offered an article that covers some hints at 'dirtying down' a model for use in a game. While not purporting to be the 'Holy Grail' of texturing, we are happy that he thought of us and I thank Jeroen Maton for his efforts.

Click the image for a read and come back to give nice comments...

Looks interesting. I've been diving into texturing/materializing the last months, maybe I'll pick up good tips and tricks.
Thanks for sharing!

A well done article. Very forward and helpful to anyone looking for direction on texture work. If I can point out one thing, on page 2 the forklift is flipped causing all the text to be backwards. It was kinda funny to see that and on the same page you talk about texture clusters. Then on the top, it looks like you mirrored the texture on the forklift.

Glad you guys like the article

Some of the images are mirrored indeed. The original models/textures were ok, but I'm afraid the graphics designer mirrored them to make a nicer banner...

ooh the irony... ^^
