What a great tutorial! I really envy your eye for detail, those industrial-enviroment artworks are really something!
Many thanks Stefan for this workaround and the tips as well!

Photoshop Brushes:
first off..use a tablet!...if you have any interest in working in CG then a mouse just wont cut it,& once you use a tablet you'll know why
The dynamics options I use with Photoshop brushes are only available if your using a tablet.

if you select the 'Brush' tool,then hit F5 the brush pallete will open,this is more indepth than just selecting brushes as it will allow you to modify the shape,flow,scattering etc

I've started with a default 'chalk' brush & adjusted the scattering,you have a real time view of the brush shape,just play with those dials & you'll see how easy it is to modify the brushes into something unique.









Everlite..the occlusion pass is explained on page 3 of this thread,it requires 3dmax that has mental ray installed(which I think came in at version 7?)

PixelGen,you mention getting a fine black line..I guess that comes from the uv seams,overlapping uv's would cause it to look black(you can check for overlapping uv's in the uvw window)

Great Tutorial!!
Really like it. Here's my quickie version. The top is the textured version. Interestingly, this whole model was generated from a single 512 x 512 16-bit Photoshop TIFF file and rendered in Vue 6-Infinite. It's actually under 1800 polys. Picture 2 shows the model, while the third image shows the height map from Photoshop.
