best practice for modelling complex textures to multi-curved surface


New member
Hi guys, looking for some advice on the best way to model a textured finish similar to the attached on a complex curved surface?

Any ideas or suggestions greatly appreciated as it's doing my head in...

If you're at all familiar with the movie and video game 3D pipelines, you know they're similar. They both utilize modeling, texturing, rigging, animation, etc.
