Part 1: creating the base texture By Dave Nagel Whether you're involved in 2D or 3D, working with UV maps or creating seamless tiles, it's simple to use Adobe Photoshop to create skin textures for your characters.
Photoshop's brush dynamics provide you with a means to create deep textures for a wide variety of skin types--from rough, uneven and blemished to smooth and silky. We'll take a look at a method for painting such textures in Photoshop that will be applied to a 3D character. Preparation Texturing skin can be quite an involved process and one that doesn't end with the 2D image map you create in Photoshop. Various parameters in your 3D program will contribute to the effect you're creating--especially specularity and bump settings. But using Photoshop, you can get yourself pretty far along the way to creating a texture that will evince an impression of human skin not just through the use of dynamic brushes, but also through the application of various layer blending modes. 2. 3. 4.

A pointer for using my Cloth Textures collections, if you are using Paint Shop Pro by JASC software, just convert the files to .bmp and drop them in the 'patterns' folder in the PSP program files (or open a tile at the same time you are working on your image, any image that's open will show up as a pattern selction, then you can leave them in .jpg format).
You will then be able to use them with any brush type in the program including the line tool and all your custom brushes. This also enables you to change the angle, opacity, scale, density etc. of each seamless pattern with ease. (If you click on the small arrow under 'styles' you'll see a menu that has a brush, a gradient square and a textured square, click on the textured square icon and you'll be able to choose a tiling texture from whatever is in your patterns folder. You can further change the scale and orientation of the pattern from there. To change density and opacity use the brush settings.) Texture Library. Texture Downloads.
