Chain­mail, the bane of my life!

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In Depth For Honor Art -

As I said, I hate do­ing chain­mail. Even if it’s pos­si­ble to do it by hand, you can save your­self lots of time in pro­duc­tion by us­ing a photo for sug­gest­ing ma­te­ri­als such as leaves, grass or sand that have to get painted quickly. But even when us­ing photo tex­tures, I pre­fer to make a cus­tom brush that does the work, so that it still feels more like paint­ing. For ex­am­ple, you could make a lit­tle cir­cle, set your brush to Di­rec­tional and play with the space in­side the brush me­dia win­dow to de­velop a chain­mail ef­fect. Here I use a chain­mail photo, put it on a layer above the rest, set it to 70 per cent Opac­ity and put it in per­spec­tive us­ing the Warp Tool.
