Objects created using 3D computer graphics have a tendency to appear too perfect and therefore slightly unrealistic. To create more natural textures, it is necessary to be able to observe and understand how real world objects become worn and dirty with age. This title focuses on how the understanding and use of aging, and "wear and tear" on an object can help add realism to your textures. Paul demonstrates how different surface materials can be simulated using simple color, bump, specular, reflection and transparency maps. These principles are illustrated by the texturing of a rustic lantern and weathered house using Adobe Photoshop®.
