Startin' something new...

I chose to start up a new project, rather than keep on my old one. Might go back to it, but I dunno.

Below is a character I just finished. I rigged the body, still need to do the face. I’m having trouble trying to make a decentish skin material, though I figure that’ll be easier once I read through a few tutorials on skin and uv-mapping. (whatever uv-mapping is. :p)

I do have two questions, though.

Can someone point me to a good tutorial on making clothes for a model? Also, I was wondering if someone could tell me how to install Makehuman on Ubuntu 8.10 64-bit, I figure it’d make building the rest of the characters for my project a bit easier.
