Giv­ing metal an in­ter­est­ing look

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

Fan­tasy art draws in­spi­ra­tion from his­tor­i­cal sources, so or­nate ar­mour and weapons are com­mon­place. When deal­ing with metal ob­jects, I of­ten block in solid shapes and use the the Bevel and Em­boss op­tion (Layer> Layer styles). This is only to cre­ate a quick base to work with and shouldn’t be used as a stand­alone tech­nique (ex­cept per­haps for very small de­tails), be­cause it’ll pro­duce an ar­ti­fi­cial-look­ing re­sult. As a fi­nal touch, I add a few high­lights us­ing a tex­tured brush that’s set on Color Dodge mode.
