My personal skin(need help 4 it)

I just want to know which programs are good for texturing,
and i wanna use male 07 model,but i just want my skin hexed.
I will try the hexing tutorial later.
Tell me which programs are good for texturing,
modelling maybe,
and please post some links to it.

Adobe Photoshop’s the best for skinning. There’s free alternatives like Gimp and Aviary though. Autodesk 3D Studio Max is a good example of a modeling program, among other stuff like XSI, Zbrush, Milkshape, etc.

VTFEdit and GIMP are what I use for skinning. Not really got into modelling yet so can’t help you there.

GCFScape: (Might need that if your modding a source texture.)
