- The other day my mother asked me, she said,…(mimics a woman's voice) "Thanassis,…"what these Projection Painting?"…We are Greek.…Yes, my mother speaks English with a exotic accent.…Actually, she never asked me that.…Anyway, 'What is Projection Painting?"…is something you should always ask yourself.…You could always ask like my mother,…(changes voice again) "What these Projection Painting?"…But, generally, you can ask any way you want.…So in order to do that,…I'm going to go to my 3D Paint layout,…go to my Materials…and do it I think for the last time,…but I can't promise anything.…
Double click,…activate,…call this mookie body.…And double click on this,…go to the Color channel,…add a new texture.…I'm going to make him blue this time,…okay, kind of blue, not exactly blue,…and I will take this material and drop it…on his trousers this time.…(laughs) I tricked you.…So this is pants,…pants.…
I'm going to double click again…and call this mookie body.…I actually copied and pasted it.…Activate it, double click here,…or double click here, whatever you want.…
