Cell Shading 1

Hey Gang,

I know it has been a long time since I've made a post but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy. So, in the spirit of learning and growth, I've been working on my photo shop skills. Recently, I purchased " Master Art Works Metal Gear Solid 4" which basically is an awesome collection of production art and "making of" concept art for the video Game Metal Gear Solid 4. I'm sure all of you know that I am a Metal Gear fan right? Anyways, contained within this book are several examples of cell shading which I decided, I would emulate. The following image is the result of my efforts.

I spent most of my time simply playing around with camouflage patterns and I admit, I got a little carried away and created several " Variations" of this shooter character which you will find below.

I spent a lot of time digging around for various military camouflage patterns and I'd be a happy to share my resource files to anyone who is interested.
The following camo patterns you will find are. British DPM, British Desert DPM, German Flecktarn, US Woodland, CADPAT, Desert Tiger Stripe, Tiger Stripe, Urban, US 3 Color Desert and a couple of civilian pattens Mossy Oak and Real Tree. One that I am quite proud of is the Denison Smock pattern that was used by British Para Troopers during the 2nd World War. I've got quite a few more that I have not used as well.

Maybe in a follow up post, I'll include them all.

Thanks for stopping by.
