ill split this here into a weekly episode and itll get more advanced as it continous.
ill try to cover everthing i know about this.
photo-sourcing, reference models, and post prod. / comp
each friday ill post something new here so you folks can try it out yourself over the weekend.
this friday´s tute will handle photo-based normal maps.
how to extract them
how to enhance them
