@Biscuits Bissy! This is FANTASTIC!!! I'm learning so much!!
Another Skin Painting Video Tutorial
Fixing the seams in Blacksmith3D.
(but the technique can also be used in Zbrush or any other software in which one can texture 3D-models).

Cool. I will be checking that out later. I am on the work pc, and the internet is painfully slow here.
@Biscuits As soon I have some time left, check this out.
I have a bit hectic. Just came home from holidays a dew days ago and try to catch up stuff now :) Mails, post, shopping, all this boring stuff lol
Wow ... this is all so enlightening!!! Amazing. I feel like I've been given an amazing gift with these tutorials!!
Great (if a bit long) tut on seamfixing.
Is it a good or a bad idea to have symmetry ON? That way you'd fix both sides in one go ... I would think at least XD
Sadly I have only Blacksmith 4 ... so some of the things you showed probably aren't available ... But I'll check if that lightning trick is there because it certainly makes it a lot easier without shadows :)
I guess I should ask for the new Blacksmith for my birthday ;) But it is EXPENSIVE (I used to upgrade, but during my hiatus, I missed several iterations and now an upgrade isn't available for me)

You can try the latest 220.127.116.11 version on a subscription basis of I believe $8 monthly. Though you have to get it from the blacksmith3d website. Not sure the subscription is list on Rosity.
Thank you all for your replies!
This technique can be used with any 3D texture software not only with Blacksmith3d, but also with like Zbrush or Bodypaint, the principle is use a skin-tile instead of a color.
Yes, so sorry for the 20 minutes paint demonstration, it was actually sped up in double speed. Lol
But even then...
To make a blank skin canvas with fixed seams...in realtime is pretty fast!
Compared to my previous method that I painted it without the skintiles manually, took me weeks...and a lot of wrist pain...and is downright boring, because you do like 8 layers until you get the effect that one single tile already has.
As long as you don’t get program error warnings or artefacts on the mirrored side you can use symmetry, test it out first.
@Biscuits The length is okay to me. I am a novice in character making and every good explained tut is very much appreciated by me.
Thanks a lot :)

One other thing about the seam fixing.
I am aware it's really hard to see the seams, because the tiles do a good job of camouflaging them.
But we know there are seams, so it's important to know where the seams live, hence the seamtracker screenshots.
Just try to blend the contrast in resolution between the UV-maps out, because every figure has resolution contrasts on the textures.
You can see that when applying a checkboard shader.
And the result can be a sharp face and a blurry neck, just because figures don't have the same resolution per polygon.
There is nothing a texture creator can do about that unfortunately, so just blend the borders.
Adding Details with Seamless Skin Tiles!
As before, a GREAT video. And thanks for listing the music, now I need to go search those out :)
