    Jun 29, 2010, 12:10 AM - Black Smudge Weathering #1

    Greetings my fellow vode


    Ive got a question that i havnt been able to answer and hopefully someone can help me out

    Im not sure what the correct term would be (could be carbon smudges or something like that) But ive noticed on weapons and armor (especially white) has carbon like smudge marks on it. I can see why it would have this but my problem is as follows...

    How do you create those markings?

    All the answers are appreciated!

    I alternate between a large and small kiwi brush, then work it in with my hands. For hard lines, I put a crease in the material, in the shape and length I need, first.

    Go take a look at the latest pics in my WIP thread...
