Texturing the Body

I took photographs of various clothes and scanned them in at high resoultion. Then I took the texture and edited it into a bump map to show the threads of the fabric. Using cylindrical mapping, I placed the textures on.

For the shoes I took a photograph of an old leather shoe. I changed the color to black and used the same texture as as a specular highlight map. The result was that the shoe seemed scuffed in some areas and shiny in others.

The vest and pants material was taken from the shirt. I changed it to black and upped diffuse level fifty percent so the highlights would show up more easily. I used the same bump map to show the detail in the fabric.

Here is a final render of the textured body.
