Hi everyone,

I have seen different textures painted by very good people in this community. But what I would like to know is, how do you add subtle effects to textures? I'm talking like the little shine across the tail which makes it look so much more realistic and all of them little nitty gritty parts which make a repaint look that much better. I'm currently painting on the CLS A330 fwiw, N388HA Hawaiian 2017 Revised Livery.

Painting gloss on the diffuse texture is not really a good idea, when light disappears or chages its position the "painted-gloss" stays in the same position wich is really unreal.
Adding details and nuances to a paint, wearing,scratches and things like that.
Its a question of trial and error, using layers and layer-properties and effects.

I can imagine my answer is not really  "giving the key to..." I am sorry for that, nevertheless my answer IS an answer .
A straight answer to the question "how can a make a paint like Guerinca" cannot be given either.
Its all about skills and experience.

This all does not take away the fact its always a good habit to give a response to an answer given to a question you put on a forum.
EVEN when this answer does not fullfill your needs.


This is a forum for friends by friends , at least we have to act in a bit positive way.

No reaction at all ??? Ohhh thats so..................
