Default Best way to go about texturing the Dino..

Mike how would you break her down for the best map.. Never tried to map such a complex model before... Any suggestions would be a help..... You have abit more experience than i at lay out..

The pic is just a planar map, so her legs and arms over lap...

Thanks mate...

You could probably have the entire length of the body from snout to tail as one map, while the arms and legs mapped seperately.

just a visual guide to see how the mapping is doing. The goal is to get the number grid as straight as possible.
