Okay so the battle damage stuff is super easy to follow, even in the preview. And it is awesome.
That high chrome effect? A little harder to work out but there are interference pigments used. Looks like Interference violet for sure.
So where have we mentioned this before? Just all over N7 gear and it is a really effective way to get those beautiful light effects used in games and 3D animation and make it permanent. It’s like a glowing layer- flat mica flakes that can bee seen through from top to bottom but the colour shows edge on.
Highly recommend getting violet and blue and green as they are so commonly used. I will be getting all the interference pigments again though.
