Witchy... Uv map are tme consuming just use a lot of planar projections and make the map as flat as possible. As for paint I use maya for the basic layout of different colors than bring the file into photoshop for adding details.

So do you map each projection seperately or do you take them and adjust them into a single texture map for taking into PS? I find laying out UV's very difficult, all this cutting and sewing always seems to go strangely wrong. I have the UV map tut but I am still not quite getting there.

You have to break up the parts your trying to lay out to get a nice flat map, using planar projections.. once you have them all projected yes you have to do a tone of sewing to do.

Like I said it a very time consumming...

NICE, how did i miss this whole thread!! Anyways, great job kurt! I love VIVI .. he was originally just called the black mage in FF1.. or it was black wizard. Anyways, he was a awesome little dude.. Other than that though, i notice that your model could be squished down a bit, and also has a straight back, when vivi actualy has a major hunch, as you can see in that refrence picture that vector provided .. lookin realy good though kurt.
