How's my TD weathering?

Recommended Posts

I started the weathering today

I don't know if I like it or not

what do you guys think?

Too much?

Too blotchy?

not enough color difference?

not enough white showing through?

any input would be appreciated

I like it :) .

Maybe add a few more dark brown tones to it (mud, raw umber).

And tone it a bit down.

Photos never do weathering justice. Maybe a little more white showing through. Really want to see what it looks like fully done! B)

Your weathering looks excellent Nathan! I'd say you should go back and pat with a barely damp rag or paper towel to try and bring back some contrast at the high points and in a few spots that might naturally rub clean. Just my 2 cents.

I agree, should tone it down just enough.

thanks all

I do appreciate honest criticism.

many forums tend to placate the noobs by telling them how awesome their stuff looks in order to not discourage them.

i was planning on hitting the high points

Then letting it wear naturally

i have everything "done" except the helmet, handbacks,& accessories

i'll try it on & post a pic or 2 later tonight

This is the first time how i applied my weathering(but with black color :huh::P i know i know),like to see how it turns out when its done,and i agree,let some white coming through,if you want to add darker tone more do it slightly :)

For refference,the behind the scene photo with a production guy holding a T-21 would suits how it should turns out with this base(orange pauldron trooper)

On pics weathering is always difficult to see but as far i can see you are doing a very great job bro B) ! Maybe indeed tone it down some.

Keep up the good work !

Good result you got there Nathan..

Weathering is always difficult to judge by pictures but yours is looking fine! :)

I'm no expert on this subject but I think Ray's correct but I think also you are asking about the coloration of the weathering and plan to remove some? Anyway it's looking good and I'm anxious to see the final results.

I like it!! Really brought the contrast out, and given it more depth. Nice to see some shiney poke thru too :D

Got it.

I'll take the weathering down some more

I have to troop on saturday, so no more "fixing" until afterwards.

I still need to do the bucket, pack, pauldron, pouches, and handbacks before Saturday
