What I have been working on,

I've been learning how to manipulate the bump mapping and alpha channels so that 2D parts of textures look 3D in game. (See Patches and Kneepads)
The idea is to allow much more personalization to the uniforms, patches, names, accessories.
The camouflage is the new 'Ghostex - Kilo 1', an updated Multicam.

I have also applied a lot of the bump mapping effects (Not the kneepads.. yet) to the Kryptek skins recently posted.

These are looking really good Damon, nice work. Out of curiosity, what program are you using for the bump mapping? I've been playing with xnormal and crazybump lately and they're both very good.

if you want to go from a flat texture to a normal or AO or a few others I would suggest a look at nDO its an extremely powerful tool

Thanks mate, I do everything in Photoshop CS6.

I've been doing everything by hand, I feel it shows in the quality :)
I find auto tools begin to look fairly generic, having said that I have never used any of the above mentioned.

Having no knowledge about texturing, that's looking pretty amazing there, Damon.

Did some playing with ndo today, a great program for objects like walls, floors or even vehicles, not really my cup of tea.
I just like how the hand drawn NOHQ for cloth looks.
Yes it takes a lot longer, but it feels more personal lol
