Guide to start texture creating?

Question

Hi, I’ve been trying to look for guides and tutorials on how to start creating as a texturer but I’ve hit a wall. From where I stand, I’ve only made a store name. That’s about it. What do I do to start texturing clothes etc? I came from IMVU, and it was easy to just derive from a product’s page. I’ve looked everywhere I can for an SL tutorial. Am I looking in the wrong places? Please advise! Appreciated beforehand!

Start by reviewing the articles in the Knowledge Base (link at the top of this page) that deal with building and texturing.  Then familiarize yourself with the resources in the wiki at http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Creation_Portal .  Then, I encourage you to take free classes at the Builders Brewery or Caledon Oxbridge University, both of which have excellent programs.

Also study some tutorials on using GIMP or Photoshop (or your painting software of choice) on making seamless textures.  Seamless textures, those that can be tiled without looking horrid, are the most wanted type, aside from specialist textures meant to be applied to a certain shape.

Selling textures in SL comes with one large disadvantage.  The textures need to be sold as full perm, so the buyer can use them to texture their objects and copy/sell them.  So, texture makers include a licensing agreement in lieu of using the regular permissions system to protect their intellectual property.  The downside is that you'll have to be vigilant in enforcing your IP rights.  Not everyone who buys your textures is honest enough to abide by the license agreement.
