I’d like to do some more advanced painting of my models and I’m looking at models in the 3D warehouse for inspiration and education. I’ve tried searching for examples or how-tos but I think I’m not using the right terminology to find what I want. For example, this model:
I see all of the detail graphics are handled by hidden geometry as opposed to a projected texture, but what techniques are generally used to get there? Projection of a photo on the model and then manual tracing in the model? I have some simple decorations I want to do like aircraft numbers and I’m just trying to figure out the workflow.
