Tutorial: Using Vertexpainting Instead of UV Textures


screenshot.jpgThis one's been our todo list for a while and the tutorial isn't too recent, but it's a nice technique to experiment with during the upcoming weekend.

Oto the Cleaner (we covered one of his other tutorials earlier this year) explains how to vertexpaint a Lara Croft character, achieving a rather acceptable result.

It'll cost you a handfull of extra vertices and faces but it'll save you the trouble of creating your own UV textures :)

Take care to click on the extremely subtle navigation to the second page of this tutorial: the number '2' at the top and bottom of the page is a link!
