I like how substance painter is, it looks like it produces amazing results but the price is too high unfortunately. Any good free alternatives?
i can link the free and open source solutions to create textures:
ArmorPaint ( it’s in early stage but very promising)
Pixaflux is currently free to use for commercial purposes. It is in beta though (so it may or may not have a price attached in the future).
It is node based and has features such as painting normal maps.
Mari Non-Commercial is worth checking out. It’s free for NC work.
