Gold Step by Step tutorial by CGCookie Gold Step by Step tutorial by CGCookie

Check out the Golden Exercise and Download the Practice Sheet HERE


EXERCISE:  Challenging your knowledge and application of gold. 

You can use gold on many different materials and surfaces from a golden helm to the stitching of a golden fleece. The trick is knowing how to accurately create the appearance of gold. Gold itself is a metal material. A metal surface will most often reflect light rather than absorbing it. We created a reference last year that give you a quick look at one way of creating the “golden” look.
