The Shiny Metal Tutorial


-Photoshop CS2
-Genius Mousepen tablet (8x6)


Sorry about my bad English in first place...

Actually just one person ask me for a tutorial about "how can I do shiny metal armors?" sooo I though may be would be a good idea make a tutorial about that...

I found that there are another Metal tutorials but anyway I do my small contribution to anyone who can be interested in the topic.

I´m not a professional so what you will see is just what I have learned trough the way.

Hope that can be useful for someone




I wanna thanks to my friends:iconalmanssur:, :iconnell-fallcard:, :iconbetombetom: who help me trough the process and the correction of the text (Anyway, sorry for any grammar or orthographic mistake)

thanks for be patient with me

UPDATE: I fix some mistake, now is it the final version

By the mighty axe of khorne, I went nuts looking for this tutorial. I had used it earlier, but forgot to save it.
