Painting sculptural detail

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Sunday, December 29, 2013 Under: Quick Blog Tutorial
Hey all!

I was given the idea for this one, but I wasn't sure if it was going to work. Experience should've eased my mind on this one already. GOD has never shown me anything to write here that didn't work.

HE showed me that you can literally paint in your normal influence and I was like: "Really?! No..." and tried it on Saturday night and sure enough! You can!

Here's a video of what it looks like in action:

Now, basically, you do exactly what you would, when you want to paint a texture onto any object in Blender:
- UV unwrap
- Add new image
- Pack Image as PNG
- Save the project
- Add it to your material as a texture

Here is where it differs. Instead of ticking Color (which is on by default), you turn it off and only add Normal influence and get painting!

Do note, that this does require you to be in Textured view to see the result, just like with other texture painting directly onto the model.

It is truly that simple!! Hope you enjoyed this one and that you are eager to get artsy with some of your game characters!

Thank YOU!!!!!!

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen." Revelation 22:18-21
