Here's the only book dedicated to mastering the art and critical skills of painting, creating and applying textures to your 3D models.
  • Stock a series that's designed for long life and consistently high appeal to its audience: New Riders' digital series titles cover the techniques that CG pros and serious students need to succeed.
  • Covers the difficult-to-master artistic techniques of texture creation that every serious 3D artist needs to know in a non-software specific environment.
  • Written by Owen Demers, expert texturing artist who did textures for Emmy-nominated short, Bingo. Demers draws on his formal art background and training to succinctly yet effectively teach the basics everyone needs to know and then follows with an extensive tutorial and analytical discussion of how to create your own textures painting effects for 3D computer graphics.
Creating realistic textures for 3D models takes artistic skill and know-how. Even if the model is perfect, when the textures are off, the scene isn't as believable. Just like lighting placement and camera placement and animation, texture creation is a fundamental skill that needs to be sharpened in order to get the edge in the graphics industry. Using what's taught in this book can make the difference. This full color book combines traditional texture creation principles with digital texturing techniques to enhance scenes and animations. The first half of the book is about the history of textures in fine art and in the second half, how to apply these principles to 2 and 3D digital scenes. The CD-ROM has all exercise scene and animation files and photographs. Owen Demers currently is the CG Art Director at Curious Pictures. Previously, he did the lighting and texturing for the award-winning short, Bingo. He also was the art director, and did the lighting and texturing, for the HBO preschool children's show Little Curious. Owen has been painting since he was 14.
