Need Help in Creating texture

Postby sicilian » Sat Dec 01, 2012 9:34 am

Hi,
I would like to create some denim jeans type texture, specifically on the Marvel select Avengers Hulk.
Sculpting at the pants would increase the bulk quite a bit and thus reduce articulation. Are there ways to put some texture on it?
eg some painting techniques etc?

Any help or suggestions appreciated
=)

Maybe try going at it with a coarse sandpaper, first do horizontal strokes, then go vertical to create a kinda cross hatch pattern. You might have to tidy up a few bits of frayed plastic but I reckon it would work.

A stipple effect could get you the results you are looking for. It's basically base coating in a darker tone and use a lighter tone with a stiff bristle brush to get the stipple effect. I'm horrible at describing it, if you google it you'll get a better idea. If you google image search 'stipple effect' you'll be able to tell if it's what you'r looking for.

I did the same thing on the same figure. I heated it up and squeezed a patterned hand towel around the legs. Simple and fast, but don't burn yourself.

Thanks. I'll try stippling first. I'm unsure of my skills with heating and patterning

Just an Update,
In the end, I used a used a dremel to sand texture on the pants.
