Determined to teach myself how to texture! I decided it was best to learn how to texture simple objects and then work my way up in terms of complexity. I'm very pleased with the noodle models themselves, however, I am not completely happy with the texture. I made a custom pattern in Photoshop from an actual pool noodle and this is what came of it. I'm happy with the pattern/texture itself, but I want it to appear smaller on my model, so it doesn't look like a giant porous sponge. I want the actual foam to look smaller and more compact if that makes sense. Off to go look for more tutorials on how to do so!
