Bullet metal Tutorial by danimation2001 Bullet metal Tutorial by danimation2001
Here's a tutorial that I have on my website, Thought I'd post it here as well. If you want a more high res file it's on my website.
Dandojo

I don't state my brush setting on this tutorial because I have them stated in another one, but I'll tell them to you now(photoshop 7.0)

Make sure you go to you BRUSH PRESETS and check "Other Dynamics". then click on other dynamics to get more options. Make sure that "opacity Jitter" is set to Pen pressure. This will allow your tablet to have the soft pressure touch that you want it to have. Also I set my brushes with a little "shape dynamics". "minimum Diameter" set to about 60% to 100%.

For smooth blends, sets your brush hardness all the way to 0% hardness, and move the spacing to 30%. this will give you a nice smooth blend brush.

I'm not an expert on bullets so I really don't know it's just a bullet to me.

Hey dude. I saw this tutorial ages ago and thought it was great, and i've used it several times.

Anyways, i was on AdsOfTheWorld today and noticed this ad:

And i recognized your bullet. Did you know that they've used it?

I have no idea about this what so ever until now. What is this ad for anyway? If it's a real ad for something then I'd probably be pissed but if it's just a spoof ad, then I would just be flattered. But either way whom ever used it did not ask me if it was ok.

danimation2001 Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
It depends, not all metals are tube shaped. Some are flat, some are dome like, some even have dents in them that can mess with the reflections. It depends on the object. Your best bet is to look at the real thing and study it. Drill it into your head until it sticks. And that generally goes for all things.
