How to make this kind of textures ?

Do you know any tutorial that shows how to do a texture like this from scratch ?

with all the layering technics and stuff ?

I’m not sure about a tutorial, but this stuff always looks to me like they use multiple unwraps with images from view, then bake them into a single image. I’m sure there is plenty of painting in Photoshop, but for the most part I wonder if the basis isn’t done like the recent video tutorials on faces with blending multiple images into one texture.


This shows a maya to mudbox workflow, but it does show something similar and how they constructed it. Maybe it will give you some ideas how to get to tha same product.
