okay, i'm new still getting used to texturing my models and this is a far cry from finished. So I really need to get schooled on my metal textures because I want this for my portfolio and need it to look photo-real within reason.
I'm having trouble mostly with the red-orangey color of my stock, magazine, and grips. It's a plastic called Bakelite and I don't know how to texture it. For that matter i'm having trouble painting my metal, too because I want it to be worn, but not rusty.
If anyone knows of any good tutorials for photo-real painting or texturing that could help me, I would be most grateful. Any help is appreciated!
