Can someone help me out on creating a realistic leather texture? Would it need bump mapping or is there an easier alternative? Thanks.
There are a couple here, http://repository.parastudios.de/index.php?p=6&c=5
test them out to see how they were made then adjust to your needs.
one recipe i use is voronoi texture + noise texture + cloud texture.
Use the colorband to vary shades, then add nor for bumpmapping & experiment with mix, add, darken. repeat this for all textures until you are happy with the result.
Thanks a lot really apreciate this, it’s going to help out a great deal.
I’ll try posting in what i’m working on.
thanks for the textures…Im new to this so i ask it. How do i use this texture in the model im working on?
hardness of about 20, and a greyish spec helps too
