Apple polishing?!

Hey guys,

Working on a still life right now for a CG class. One of the pieces I have to do is an Apple. I got a pretty good handle on the modelling and lighting for it, however im struggling with the texture. I cant seem to make the apple have streaks from pole to pole. If anyone had any ideas that would be WONDERFUL!!!


I’m not the best at textures, but a simple solution might be to pick a procedural, maybe marble, use it as a bump map, and then stretch it along the y-axis. it’s wat i’d prol’ly do. for something more complicated, there’s probably a tut’l out there that does it.


I sent you a PM.
