Date Added: 9th December 2009
Software used:
3ds Max, V-Ray

Texturing

For the shading and texturing, I used a V-Ray material and some blended V-Ray materials (for logos and mixed materials).  I used normal maps, colour maps, reflection maps, bump maps, some procedural maps and cavity maps (from ZBrush and Poly Boost).
 
I mixed them in Photoshop using some blend modes (mostly Soft Light and Multiply).  I also used the Nvidia plug-in, "NormalMapFilter", to generate and mix some normal maps.  Here are some map layouts (Fig08 - 12).
