Shiny gear
« on: November 22, 2017, 02:02:25 PM »
Sorry if this has been explained somewhere but i couldn't find it. Why is my gear so shiny? Everything looks like it's made of leather, but when I look at other peoples gear, they don't have that problem. What am I doing wrong and how can i fix it?

Is  there a tutorial on how to make it darker? I have just used the norm's that come in the psd and im having trouble understanding all this. :D The only kinds of tutorials I could find were where they didn't touch the alpha channel.
