Hello from /3/, Ive been wanting to do painted textures for 3D in a similar style to this and thought this would be the best place to ask. Ive seen some texturing tutorials but the artists were not really that good. The one thing I really want to know is what process is used here to "light" the subject because it looks almost too smooth to be brush strokes.. would it be clever use of adjustment layers and gradient masks?

To be honest, those textures wouldn't look good on an actual model, that's because the highlights are drawn directly to the textures when they should come from the actual renderer, it's a well known rule that you should not draw lights in your textures, however if you are asking how to paint skin in textures, for that you need to practice a lot, I've been painting textures for buildings for about 2 years and I can tell you that is has been a hell of a fun ride, just keep praticing anon until your uv game and your painting skills are strong as hell and you...

>>would it be clever use of adjustment layers and gradient masks
yes. many layers handling different aspects of light blending, and probably a normal map baked in manually too (you can do this using Nvidia's plugins).
additionally, the original texture was probably painted at a far larger size, and then scaled down to met the target resolution.
a lot of the art for that game was made to run on very low-spec computers, so it had to look as smooth as possible.

Those textures were baked, the same way a normal map would be baked. In other words the object is placed into a scene with some lighting or ambient occlusion, and the resulting shadows that are rendered are baked directly into the diffuse map or some dedicated shadow channel. It's very commonly used in video games because they require no additional processing power to display, but the downside is that they will never look completely natural because they don't change when the scene surrounding them changes.

That's all shit you learn by making art and figuring out what works and what doesn't. lol No tutorial is going to download the info into your brain like the matrix. You need to spend years learning it, tackling one problem at a time until slowly you learn...

Can someone make an actual video game that only lets you play when you submit artwork to a forum or something? People could tag to remove it if you sent bullshit and if it were removed, you'd get set back in the game, but if you spent time on a drawing you would get some powerups in the game.

It'd be a motivational game to encourage not only working on your art, but also to help to remember to break too (no sense working til your hand is cramped because one day it's gonna cramp faster. treat your...
