Vertex Painting

See this video by David Ward on blendercookie to get an introduction to Vertex Painting.

In this tutorial, I create a random “sketch sculpt” and discuss the reasons you might want to use vertex paint, and then we go in to our sculpt and paint a “texture map (no actual image is used)” onto the model. Then we tweak it some with some bump maps and Subsurface Scattering. I then show you how to go ahead and create a texture map from the painted vertices using the Texture Bake from the Render Menu. (Quote: video description from the site.)
