Chaos Tank – W.I.P (Part 2)

I used masking fluid to create areas of damage on the tank’s armour plates. If you’re not familiar with this, it’s basically just a fluid which is splotched-on, left to dry, then painted over. Afterwards, you remove the dried fluid. So, first stage:

With this stuff, the cardinal rule to follow is that less is more. I kind of didn’t. You can see that the battle-damage effect was way over the top:

This was a bit of a departure, really – I’ve never really tried directional lighting effects before; but sometimes trial and error takes you in interesting directions.
