    Started work on the jacket. I mixed in some purple for the shadows. Still some work to do. I'm more or less pleased with the contrast and shadows on the back. The highlights got a little chalky, but I think that works in my favor for the type of material I'm going for. I think I might highlight up some more and then glaze it down a tiny bit and glaze in some more varied shadows in some areas to push the contrast and to smooth things out.

    Glaze some dark reds into the deepest shadows of the jacket, like the armpit area. Will really help the contrast and add interest.

    I am not sure you need to add more contrast to the beard, but may one to add some white to the top of the mustache.

    Good call krule!!! Remeber when dealing with colors complimentary and highlight analogous. The reds work better for the jacket because Simply put red and green are compliments and bring each other put much better due to the fact that complimentary colors (are not good together because the "compliment one another" conplimeyeey colors are colors that have all the primary colors in their makeup when they are together . Simply put the give a pleasing contrast to the eye Barcause they contain each therein !!!

    Okay so I tried some weathering on the jacket with some tears/scratches. I know it's usually done on metal surfaces but I've also seen some painters do it for cloth. So I thought I would give it a shot. I think they turned out decent, although it seems like my eye is telling me the material is metal now. I could use some guidance. What does it look like to you guys? Did I totally screw it up at this point?

    Perhaps don't include the shadow when painting scratches on cloth?
    Scratches on metal dent it, that's where the shadow comes from. Cloth stretches and tears, which should just turn it lighter.

    I think...don't take my word for it

    Yeah you might be right. Either just the light or the dark.

    Yeah it does make the model look hard, and I agree with Foxtail. I would almost think of it as exposing what is underneath to light since there is a hole, while with metal if the damage doesnt penetrate all the way through you would get a bowl, which causes shadows.

    Well crap haha. At least I know whenever I get around to painting some armor and weapons I can achieve some decent scratches haha

    So should I do the lighter color or the darker color?

    Ha well I think that's a good example. Thanks Guawol!

    I think the dark line looks ok as a deeper hole in the cloth but maybe only use it on a few of them as bigger rips

    Btw if you look at my gallery you'll see the weathering iI LOVE is on everything , cloth like you have achieved very well might I add, metal , cloaks, etc. here's a hint that you've already figured out - its the same steps oct, metal, cloth all the same. You did it you've had the A-HA moment . Great job way to go!!!!
