need help with textures,materials and uv mappping

Hi guys
i am new here and need some help.
i have created a model of this dragon and i wonder if anyone can give me some ideas about how to give it materials and texures (preferably scales). i have looked at lots of tutorials regarding textures, materials and uv mapping but i have found no good way to go about giving life to my model
Thanks for any help



have you tried the wiki? Contains parts about Materials, Textures and UV-mapping - definitely suggested lecture.
You might get more reactions with a specific question, the topics you mentioned are a bit broad.


yes i have tried the wiki but i still haveā€™ent found what im looing for
