Big thanks for the encouraging words ya'll. Really, it just turns to pure motivation.
FunkyBunnies, the clothing and accessories are going to have to wait for a bit ...'cause this evening I decided to take off on a tangent and give Texturing a shot!
Oh yeah! Now, I admit, I'm NOT very experienced in texturing, so be gentle with me. I'm not really sure that what I came up with is even going to work. So, I'm eliciting comments and crits from anyone regarding the texture for Jozan?s head. I?m not finished...needs all the detail work, but I wanted to get feedback to these simple question, ?Am I doing this right?? and "Do you see anything that you think will cause problems?" (file that under, 'things I should?ve looked into BEFORE I signed up for a competition.'
Ah well, how else do you improve, eh?
[edit: I wanted to give props to 'nfuchs' - his character's textures were a huge help and heavily studied for reference. Thanks nfuchs.]
