Hi, im just starting doing some Lord of the Rings stuff,

Im pretty new to this :expressionless:

but could u tell me how to improve this shield, its the Gondor one



The second one doesnt have the full textures yet

Any help is much appreciated

not much to say at the moment, would like to see more. Perhaps the back face of the shield, with the straps?

About the texture: it doesn’t look very worn. Perhaps you should try to add some scratches at least on the borders, it looks far too brand new.
You should use specularity/hard maps in order to enhance the silver/gold effect of the design on the shield, and perhaps a very faint reflection (yeah I know there’s nothing to reflect at the moment) with Fresnel on.

Overall it seems to be a good start :slight_smile:
