I did this in Photoshop
1. Select the skin area, copy selection to a new layer.
2. Texturizer, load texture, snake skin.
3. Adjust scaling and relief to taste and apply
4. Adjust opacity and blending mode to taste
I think snake skin is a standard PS texture
cool thanks, havent had a chance to dl them yet but will let you know when i do! if you want to join in the fun, the contest is at the link in my sig. cheers!
skins are fun. we've done some of these before on RP. they are fairly simple to do.
take your original image, dupe the layer.
add a blank raster layer.
copy your skin to the blank layer. best here if you can make this a seamless skin since you may need to add your skin more than once if it doesnt quite fill the whole layer.
then, pick your favorite blend mode on the skin layer. blends like overlay, multiply, soft light and others shld work fine depending on the effect you want.
now simply erase the parts of the skin layer that you dont want showing on the duped original layer. probably best here to use an eraser with a partial hardness and a partial opacity.
that technique is also useful in that now, by simply changing the blend mode on the skin layer, you can get several different effects all with the one skin.
here's one i did fairly quickly using handmadegod's snake skin. it probably would have been a bit better had i oriented the scales to point down, but i wanted the patterns in a certain way so i didnt.
i was a little sloppy with this, but you get the idea.
