I don't know much of the intricacies of nodes and was wondering how I might go about creating a procedural dark red leathery textured skin for a model I am working on. I don't want to use a UV texture for it.

This is the look I'm going for the skin, I'm currently looking at some tutorials but most haven't had a great result

The problem I am having is that textures I've tried aren't showing up it just looks red even with increased factors, here is what I have from following a video.

    $\begingroup$ Have you tried anything yet? If so, what have you gotten so far, and where are you having trouble? Are you using cycles or internal? It would also help to add an image that represents what you are trying to achieve. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Timaroberts Yeah I'm in cycles, and I've tried quite a bit but nothings really looked remotely like what I want. I was gonna do a image but I figured since I haven't made any progress on it I wouldn't need one $\endgroup$ Nov 18, 2016 at 3:03
  • $\begingroup$ @PhoenixCreations could you just add some image of what do you expect, some example? $\endgroup$
