The Complete Guide to Texturing Clothing - Part 5

The Complete Guide to Texturing Clothing - Part 5

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 final part includes Chapters thirteen, fourteen and fifteen, consisting of five 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 final part starts with a chapter on denim textures and its particularities. The other chapters deal with saving out library presets and the many different types of presets that Daz Studio offers to provide the best user experience for the end user, combining several settings into one preset. We'll cover material presets, shader presets, partial materials, hierarchical materials, property presets and how to handle overlays. The last chapter will give you all the information you need to edit and gather all your files and package them all correctly into a zip file.

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, and how to set up your shaders for fabric, leather, knitwear, metal and gemstones.

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 scans and seamless patterns 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!
