Once I completed all the UV mapping I used texporter to generate reference textures which I could then use in Photoshop to give me an idea what I'm texturing onto.

After getting all those exported I then started to create textures making full use of the photos supplied with and rusty metal textures.

Fall-offs. After creating the textures I needed the skin to look right, as skin will absorb
light being made of hundreds of layers of transparent skin, blood, muscle and
then bone. For this I opted for a cheap affective fall-off material applied to the
self-illumination map. I also used the fall-off material for the lens to generate a green glowing affect

Left: No Fall Off. Right: Added fall-off to the self-illumination maps

Fall-off maps are lots of fun and can do so much to alter the way light hits a surface and what's more they are cheap on processing power.

Inner Glow
Edge Glow
