9 In­tro­duce re­flec­tive sur­faces

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

Sci-fi de­sign and hard sur­face de­sign usu­ally go hand in hand. Adding re­flec­tiv­ity to those hard sur­faces helps to con­vey a sense of re­al­ism. Think of its sur­round­ings and show hints of that on the sur­faces. The amount will de­pend on how re­flec­tive the sur­face is. Chrome, like a mir­ror, has highly re­flec­tive prop­er­ties while brushed me­tal will have less re­flec­tiv­ity. It’s im­por­tant to note that by adding the colours and tones of the en­vi­ron­ment on the mech, it helps to gel the over­all piece to­gether.
