These are really cool.

Thanks I have played with crazy bump in the past and its cool, but I have been using the default normals to maintain the full depth of the actual high poly models the devs used to generate them. Then I use Nvidia's normal map pluggin to generate a normal from the diffuse map which gives me all of the fine details I added to the diffuse in normal map form. I then overlay this over the original normal to capture all new and old details. I find it more accurate than crazy bump,and free;). But crazy bump is great if you are starting from scratch with no normal map to overlay.

Haha I learned through trial and error the past year and a half,I did have a second major in fine art in college so I know a bit about design, composition etc...But most of the stuff you see here has been learned in the last year or so.

I have a tutorial here under tutorials "how is it done" It's a little old, but the only real thing I would add to it is that I've learned how to make and use brushes.

It is a ton of work, probably 8 hours or more per texture now that I know what I'm doing. Before while learning it took longer.

But it's pretty rewarding and fun if its what you like to do so I recommend giving it a go. Good luck and enjoy :)
