Based on feedback from this and the temporary site this seems to be my most popular cover to date, the first cover I've applied bumpmapping to, to add depth to the textures:-

Yeah I agree, I would like to know what bumpmapping is, all I can come up with is a road map that hasn't been folded right.

Essentially bumpmapping it's a technique usually used in 3D games where the texture has depth applied to it in area's of light and dark. It's used to create the illusion of depth on a flat plane. e.g. A usually flat looking wall with appear to have 3 dimensional bricks etc.

To apply in a cover you need to map your texture on to a flat plane in a 3D application like 3DStudio, Maya or Cinema 4D then create a greyscale version of the same texture and apply that as a bump map with specular highlights. Adjust your camera and lighting as desired then render at your desired resolution.

If anyones interested and has the software I'll make a propoer tut.

I think it it a case of chicken and egg, skally, mate.

I think alot of folks would be interested in finding out what's involved, and would then consider investing in the software.

I have to admit that I know little of the techniques involved, although I have come across an Nvidia plugin for photoshop. :blink:

Maybe just run through creating the texture on this cover. That would be cool. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

Skally has a problem...

He can't speak in laymans terms and usually needs a translator when he is doing something simple like discussing his work day.

He can do great tutorials, as per his resident artist one, but try talking to him!! He goes into such depth, atoms seem huge!

Anyway... bless him..this is one of his best covers and its gonna take a lot for him to do something better...but I have no doubt that he will (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

God Lullubelle your Skally is as bad as my Wozza there are no laymans term here either even today i was called out to help him while he was working on a Ford doing a rack which he had rekitted and he says have a good look at it can you pick what is wrong well it took me a good 3 minutes to realise he was talking about differant shape on the drive shaft and then spends the next 15 minutes explaining to why this is so. And I dont care how it goes as long as it gets out the workshop & the repairs are paid for so i can go shopping thats all i care about the poor mans mind works overtime But i feel the same as you bless him

that cover is UBELIEVABLE! if the studios knew any better, they'd save the money by not even producing their crap and start sending out dvds with no cover at all. i'm without a doubt, replacing the retail (no matter what it looks like) with this bad boy!
