chrome


Recommended Posts

Chrome is a difficult effect to pull off, mostly because of the fact that chrome is highly reflective and doesn't have much of a color itself. So, you may have a grey color to simulate the metal, but in order to make it look like chrome, you'll have to add in very bright highlights and very dark lowlights to create the reflection.

The difficult part is getting the reflection to define the curves of the shape you're making. If you have an existing image with the rims you want, than it shouldn't be too difficult to get the shape right just by following the shape of the existing image, but if you're skinning different rims onto an image, you'll have to go from scratch, and it may take you a few tries to get it looking just so.
