Hey, I'm an amateur with lightwave and have just begun working with it. I have currently created a football to be used with a sports tv show and I was wondering if anyone could help me with the texture. I would like to have the bumps and everything but it seems to not workout for me. Any help?:confused:

I think a bump map would be your only real choice. If you try to model them your poly count would probably be in the billions :eek:

Photo reference is always good for texturing and might help if your having trouble painting the details from scratch. I can't look at it now to see if there is a football there, but CGTextures.com is normally good.

Thanks the cgtextures site is pretty cool! I think I may have found a texture that is pretty close to what I want. Plus, I can use the other textures for other projects.
