OK...I'll try it at the 1440 x 720...I was using the dimensions that usually work for me with CC sphere.
I am trying t make a baseball with a logo on it...I made a PSD with a peanut shaped path that i stroked with a red pound symbol looking brush that makes half assed looking stitches...I also made another version that was 50% gray with a white stroke that i use as a bump map.
Any other suggestions on how i can get it looking a little better are apreciated.
You should also consider painting the holes for the stitches and use this map as a transparency map.
You would then need to place a second black sphere inside of your baseball to get dark holes.
Your bump map should also have a kind of leather texture.
I have a Baseball on my site http://www.nyc-visual.com if you want to have a look at it.
