In the rendered viewport the model appears as it should, however, when I actually render it, part of the texture appears purple, which normally means I'm missing a texture but only part of the texture is purple, which doesn't make any sense. Also, all the textures are in the directories that they should be, I don't see what the issue is. Ive attached the .blend file here:

And the textures here:enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Bad UV map I'd assume, there is purple on what I presume is the nose. The UVs look very messy, which means it is probably bleeding onto some part that it shouldn't $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


I find the issue to my problem, I had a second object that I had hidden in the 3d view, and then forgot about. This caused it to appear in the render image, and the hidden object was using a texture that I had deleted causing it to be purple. It was also in the same place as the object that was normal, causing the overlapped portion to appear purple.
