Default Weathered Metal III: The result

After lamenting that I ruined the Rhino that I was working on by trying the 'rain drop' effect on it (If you recall the test piece...,)



I decided to post a pic of it for some feed back because I have heard only positive things from those who have seen it in person so far. Perhaps I was being too hard on it?? What do you think?



The painting is not finished (Far from it) but you can get the general idea of what the metal will look like.

C&C?

From what I can see here it looks really good. It has a very natural feel over it, which I would guess is what you are aiming for?

94% of teens have moved on to rap. If you are part of the 6% who still listen to real music, copy and paste this into your signature.
95% of teens would cry if they saw the Jonas Brothers at the top of a skyscraper about to jump. Copy and paste this if you are part of the 5% that would yell "DO A FLIP!!!"

Well.... if you call it "rain drop affect" then it sucks because your rain drops are almost as big as the average head. However... if you call it "some idiot painted something without making sure all the rust was sanded off first" then it's stunningly brilliant!

So... stop using the "rain drop" wording and describe it as rust causing the paint to blister, and you'll be spot on.

This looks great. Reminds me of something from Metal Slug, with the bright colors and exaggerated features.

I have to say though, I am not a fan of yellow and it kinda makes it look like it is made out of cheese. That aside though, I think you should be proud of this piece.

Look pretty sweet to me so far. I do have to agree with the idea that it looks more like the paint is bubbling than raindrops. The drops are just too big for what rain would actually be unfortunately. Bubbling paint, say from super excess heat, would be perfect however.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

I agree that it looks like paint blistering! Maybe having a couple of them popping open would wrap up the effect.

Fine..., you win. From now on I'll call it the 'hostile environment' effect instead of 'raindrop' effect. I think that I am going to continue on this project even though it isn't exactingly what I first envisioned. As I keep getting encouraging feedback on this it motivates me to complete it. Thanks all. As usual, your help is greatly appreciated (And in this case has 'saved' a model)

That's a good idea D. I'll have to try a couple of them to see how they com out.
