Shark Vertex Paint


Lately i’ve been modelling a shark for an animation I want to make and I’ve come to the part where I want to texture and paint it.
I’m trying to simulate the greyish to white gradient on the sharks body like you can see in the reference picture.

I’m trying to use vertex paint to achieve this but when I render it, it does not show up at all, and this suprised me because I did have the VCol Paint option turned on in the shark’s materials. I provided you with a screenshot of the vertex paint mode and a render with VCol Paint option turned on.

By the way, if you have a better idea on how to achieve this ‘gradient’ please enlighten me because i’m fairly new with blender.

Thanks :slight_smile:
