If I had time I would chime in detail but all I can offer at this time is see: http://mathgis.blogspot.com/2011/05/fun-with-texture.html Computer Graphics from the folks at WRI have made it into the movies, so I doubt it is a lack of expertise in this field.

So how to get real textures into Mathematica that show up in models? I don't notice the guys working at Mathematica jumping in on this one, LOL. I'm learning this stuff the hard way by doing and cr.... Here is a working "VertexData" version using ListSurfacePlot3D: ( as you can see this is my 5th experiment: the first two went very badly....): Clear[x, y, z, w, r, g, ga, gb, gc] x = If[Sin[t]*Cos[p] < 0, Sin[t]*Cos[p]/2, Sin[t]*Cos[p]]; y = Sin[t]*Exp[1 - Sin[p]]; z = Cos[t]; w = {-x, 2*y, z}; r = x^2 + y^2 + z^2; g = Flatten[Table[N[w/r], {t, 0, Pi, Pi/70}, {p, -Pi, Pi, 2*Pi/70}], 1]; Length[g] ga = ListSurfacePlot3D[g, MaxPlotPoints -> 140, Lighting -> "Neutral", Mesh -> None, Axes -> False, Boxed -> False, PlotStyle -> {Pink, Specularity[White, 20]}] gb = ParametricPlot3D[N[w/r], {t, 0, Pi}, {p, -Pi, Pi}, PlotPoints -> 100, PlotStyle -> Directive[Purple, Specularity[White, 50]], Axes -> False, Mesh -> None, Boxed -> False] gc = Show[{ga, gb}, PlotRange -> All] Export["AlienSpaceshipListSurfacePlot5.3ds", gc] Export["AlienSpaceshipListSurfacePlot5.obj", gc] Export["AlienSpaceshipListSurfacePlot5.stl", gc] The obj takes forever and ever..
