  1. @volomir: can you explain something if possible – how do you create the subtle texture pattern on the inside of the High Elf cloak in #11? I’ve seen something similar on the banner of Mirko Cavalloni’s work (link below), but would love to see/hear how it’s created!

    Thanks for the help, seeing the best and learning from them every week makes this community great =)

    • I would say that is basically done by stippling carefully. It just needs patience and control of the amount of dots to make the effect believable.
      For the case of the High Elf, you start off from a base of a darker blueish grey, and then you progressively apply layers of lighter shades of grey by stippling on top, always making sure that the bottom layer of darker grey is visible at times, so you don’t cover the whole area with the lighter colour. Also, on the areas close to the edges, you try to keep the darker grey underneath even more visible.
      It shouldn’t be hard to do with some practice I believe, it just takes some time if you are not used to the stippling technique.
      I hope it helps!
