tutorial intends to teach you how to texture metal parts, especially tanks.
I do not pretend it's the best way to texture as these are my first textures
and there are tons of texture artist better than me... but at least i
think it's a good basis to start if you have no clue about texturing...
Everytime i'm texturing, i experiment new effects so I improve my style
a bit. That's why i'll update this tutorial later on. I'm currently working
with Paint Shop Pro 8 and this tutorial will teach you how to configure
the tools under this software. If you're a photoshop experienced user,
I'm quite sure you can reproduce it without problems.
I'd like to thanks Marfy for his tutorials and screenshot of his (excellent)
work. Without that I wouldnt know anything about texturing.
As an exemple, I'm going to show you how I textured the front part of
the hull on this Panther :
This is quite a big tutorial so i divided it into chapter to make it easier.
