    How to texture a 3D model

    Im wondering how I can properly texture a 3D model. (Using 3D max)

    Teh way I do it now:
    1. Render the model from top (or side view)
    2. Paste the image in photoshop
    3. Trying to make a nice image.
    4. Stick teh image back on the 3D model useing UV Unwrap...

    Is there a better way? It mostly looks like crap with round models and my textures are left with unused spaces.
    So how could I create some skin like this, but with less black spaces...:

    Hmm, I'm not sure I follow you with steps 1 and 2.
    Then again, I only have experience with Lightwave and things might go a bit different in Max.

    1. create model
    2. unwrap model to create a flat wireframe (uv map)
    3. create your texture, based on the uv map
    4. put the texture on the model.

    Mayby this tutorial might help you.
