good point. in this case i was kinda uncertain what i wanted those materials to be.
i started with soft cloth type of material but later went in a more leathery direction.
for now i don't have time to improve this piece but if you have any references for properly defined fantasy clothing that would certainly help.
i decided to give hand painted textures one more try:
the axe was originally designed for purpose of illustrating a short book that my grandpa wrote. the book is in print right now, i'm curious how my pics turned out.
i spent a lot of time drawing those patterns on blades so i thought it would be cool to see it in 3D.
