View Full Version : Pirates, look at my "Golden Skull"!

Well, well, well...
Lets begin!

First I draw a skull using difrent low opacity brushes. I think most of you can do this easy and fast. (and better.. -_-)

When the skull is done I change the levels to clean it up a bit.


Then I press >ctrl + M< and make a curve to get a metallic texture.


And finally the fun part.. COLOR BALANCE! >ctrl + B<
Now, change the highlights and midtones to yellow. And change the shadows to red/brown.

From here you can touch it up using a brush or a smudge tool, whatever you feel like! ^^

So that's how you do metallic surfaces! XD

Thanks! Next time my metal won't look all froogly.
