Metal texture for weapons tutorial.
In this tutorial you'll be guided to create a metal texture with some decals and details that are likely to be found on guns. All you need is photoshop (mine was cs4, but any version higher than 5 will be ok i guess). It's definitely not a 'lets make a whole texture for my weapon' tutorial, just essential knowledge that may help you creating texture by combining informations found in this tutorial and maybe another ones.
I've plans to post (after i make them lol) series of gamedev related mini-tutorials about creating textures, focusing on mechanical designs.
You need to forgive me poor english grammar if you want to learn something from this tutorial, but i tried to write it like for my mother, so everybody should understand it.
But be aware: it may be difficult for beginners, so i presume you already have a basic photoshop knowledge.
Generally, i dont need any credit for using my tutorial, if it helps you in anyway, just put a nice comment, so i'll know my stuff is currently usefull, and i'll continue posting things like this one.
And disclaimer: tutorial is based on my personal experience, gained in work and by doing some other online tutorials, so there may be situation when some parts of my tutorial (this one or another) are similiar to someone's tutorial - those thing happens.
