High Resolution Photos for 3d characters

Recommended Posts

i'm not sure if this is 100% true, but i found that using an actual photo for a facemask on a character is better than painting one in photoshop or whatever. upon doing some research and looking at some high resolution 3d characters, it appears that they use high res photographs for texturing. i've tried going to stock photo websites to find images, but the results are not so good. does any body know where i can find or purchase high res images for 3d characters?

Here is one site that many of my customers seem to like:

Another is stockbytes but they tend to be pretty pricey.

 

You can also take the images and isolate eyebrows etc with alpha channels and use them as decals and/or apply them through AM Painter.

Also check out some of the darktree shaders that are available, some of them are incredibly realistic and coupled with the bake texture feature you can add to them.

Hope these links can help.

Nancy had linked this fantastic site the other day:

http://www.cgtextures.com/

 

A LOT of high res stuff there, for free!! Not a whole lot in the way of textures of humans, but a lot of other stuff.
