Texturing clothing made easy with this workshop!

esha takes you through the complete procedure for texturing clothing in this professionally edited and indexed video tutorial.

The series is presented in a workshop-like manner and esha has provided her working files for you to work along.

The series is broken into fifteen Chapters, and this fourth part includes Chapters nine, ten, eleven and twelve, consisting of seven sessions. Each session has been kept to an average running time of roughly 30 minutes in order to allow the student to absorb the material. At the end of each Chapter you'll find an assignment that will help you to review the information and put it into practice. If you work along with this course you'll have a finished texture project at the end of the workshop.

This fourth part covers some advanced techniques for working across UV seams, how to use the Map Transfer Tool in Daz Studio, how to add dirt or discoloration to a texture, how to use specularity maps and how to add metallic decorations to a fabric. We will cover in detail how to set up the Iray shader for different types of fabric and also other materials like patent leather, suede and knitwear, how to set up materials for metal and gemstones and how the geometry of a gemstone can influence the render result.

The other parts of the series cover how to save out your own templates, how to turn scans or photos into seamlessly tiling base fabrics, how to design complex seamless overlay patterns, how to adjust a pattern to a template, how to fit borders along curved lines, how to create transparency for lace, how to use bump, normal and displacement maps, how to save out presets that perform several tasks in one go, and how to collect your files for zipping them up.

If you&'re serious about creating your own textures, either for yourself or to distribute professionally, this is the best resource you could find on the topic!

All videos are fully indexed allowing you to jump to key points within the video and we've included a PDF file with hyperlinks to the videos allowing you to jump to a specific video as well as allowing you to keep notes of relevant time codes for your own reference.

The shader presets included in this part can be used as merchant resources for your own personal and commercial texturing projects!

NOTE: The software used in this tutorial is Photoshop CS6, but many of the methods and techniques presented here will also be applicable to other software.

This is one part of a bundle. If you purchase the bundle you get the complete workshop at a nice discount and on top of that you'll also get the Little Red Dress outfit for Genesis 8 Female(s) for free!
