I was curious if anyone could point me in the right direction in terms of painting textures such as metal, wood, etc. I seem to be painting everything in a matte finish.
-Gather a few nice images of the texture you are looking for and try to re-create them!
-Watch livestreams on youtube and other sites of people painting similar materials, you can learn some great techniques that way (example: http://www.deviantart.com/art/painti...ideo-370481121)
- I am sure a quick google search can yield some nice step-by-step tutorials to set you on the right path
Good luck : )
Haha, thank you! It makes my day much brighter when fellow artists find it useful or inspirational : )
Oh totally glad I could help; I shared the link to it on my school's illustration facebook page! Could you give me some pointers on this piece here?
Thank you for sharing my website with your peers! ANd yes, I would be happy to take a look
