Any special deals on it Vaskania? I didn't buy it in the earlier sale but then realised after that I really like the normal map function.

Yeah...saw that after I posted. I'm still kicking myself that I didn't get it when it was on sale but at the time I hadn't looked at the normal map side of things which is really excellent just the surface and texturing bit which made my head spin.

Texturing in quixel really isn't that bad at all. I took to it faster than I did substance (in fact I gave in to my bf's throwing quixel in my face because substance was giving me fits). If you can paint with using layers and a non destructive workflow then the only thing left to learn about quixel is where things are located in the menus.

I haven't dove into nDo too much (the normals side of things), because most of the maps you can convert are ones that I've had baked out for me already from the actual modeler or xNormal.

What is handy, is when painting on a bump map, the bump data gets saved into the normal map so there's no need to use both maps at once.

I'm using Luna's base maps as a merchant resource for creating Diva's texture so I thought I'd have a look at how it turned out.
