Painting medieval armor and capturing metal properly is hard, but it's foundational to any fantasy/sci fi character you create. It takes a lot of practice and studies to conquer it! I'll help you build the confidence you need as we do a painting study together using a reference photo. I go over my techniques and insight as you observe my process from start to finish. I also give you all the materials to get started and plenty of armor reference to do more studies on your own!
Skill level: Basic understanding of painting in Photoshop required.
Requirements: Photoshop CC, Drawing tablet (Wacom, etc.), Mac or PC
