Today I used one very cool add-on for Blender: Bprojection. With it you can use real images to paint the texture direct over your object. Is a really fun task. After I finished paint my character head, I’ve opened it on Photoshop to do some adjusts, finishing with a very good result.
There is a very good video tutorial about this add-on on Blender Cookie. Below, I’ll post the links for the add-on, also for the video tutorial.
This is the result of the texture projection in Blender:
After I’ve finished this character and gain enough knowledge, I intend to do some making-of series with tips and tutorials about my workflow in this project! 😉
