This is what it currently looks like:

This blend file is a previous save because the current file is too big, What am I going wrong?


Mesh edit mode

How would you texture him without artifacts?

  • $\begingroup$ By the looks of it you arent texturing it , just applying a material... $\endgroup$ – Knuckles209cp Dec 25 '14 at 21:25

  • $\begingroup$ What method of sculpting did you use? You may need to do some retopology for UV unwrapping to be practical. $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Dec 26 '14 at 0:00
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks Knuckles i will have a look, and i used a bit of dyno and normal sculpting. unfortunately my first try at retopology came out having problems $\endgroup$ – Ayo Adelagun Dec 26 '14 at 10:42

You also need to know how to texture , You dont need to texture it , you can also use materials but it isnt the best idea if you arent using it only for rendering :


Also be sure to look at lots of references and watch how other people do it :


there is also Clone painting , Shown in this video


And since you are beginner you might want to take a look at basic texturing :
