In todays Pen of the Avatar, Portalarium’s 3D Guru Isaac Oster gives us a brief overview of how to do texturing for 3D models in Photoshop, as well as some additional modeling in Zbrush.

Watch the Tutorial!

Isaac goes over several of the different types of maps used on models, including diffuse (color), normal (detail), specular (shininess), fresnel (indirect reflection), ambient occlusion (default shadows), and cube maps (reflection). All while showing how to create a texture across several layers in Photoshop! As always, the community chimed in with some additional questions. The full video runs just shy of an hour.
