Overview of the texturing process and PSD networks

In this chapter I'll take the gas pump I've unwrapped and look at texture- painting techniques, starting with a clean texture and then adding in dirt and wear. I'll construct both the diffused and a normal texture from a bump painted as a grayscale. I'll also look at a PSD network, a really powerful way of texturing in Maya that links a PSD file and layer sets into various components in a material, so we can see all of the parts at once here in our view.
