Product Texturing Tutorials Directory


Please feel free post and share any great texturing tutorial finds.
If providing a tutorial do not include tutorial in the body of your message. Use a link to its dedicated discussion thread instead. This thread will periodically be cleaned to incorporate useful tutorials in the first post.

Do not post your texturing questions here, this is only a resource thread. Please post your questions to to a new or existing thread.

All posts made to this thread that are not linking to a tutorial will be removed.

I will do my best to keep the lists here updated. If you find a tut listed in one of the lists below that is no longer good (as in no longer there when you click the link) please send me a forum pm stating which tut it is so I can remove it.


Old thread can be found Here.
