3D Character Textures

Here are 2 characters that I worked on doing textures. On the character with the red shirt, I did the UV layout for the parts that I was going to texture. I just did simple textures and also modeled a collar for the shirt. (the character model and rig was done by another artist/free rig) On the character with the purple shirt I just modifed the texture. I changed the shirt color, hair color, added five o'clock shadow on his face and added driving gloves. (the character model,uv layout, and rig was done by another artist/gnomon)
