Fixing the texture on the model
Looking at the previous pages, you may have noticed an unsightly join line between the two halves of the pear. This is a common occurrence when a texture is mirrored. There’s no perfect solution, but here are a few ways of getting rid of those imperfections.
You can see the join line clearly: it’s an unsightly gray streak between the pear halves, and looks unnatural.
You could try the Healing Brush – but this samples dark areas that are then further shaded by the 3D rendering.
You can use the Clone tool directly on a 3D surface, sampling a nearby texture: this works in bright areas.
Where the Clone tool falls down is in dark areas, as it samples already shaded texture which is then shaded again.
A good option is to use the Color Replacement tool, nested in the Brush tool in the toolbar. Sample a color, then paint it over the gray line. It works fairly well in most cases
