View Full Version : Killer Camo, Digital Camouflage Effect *Tutorial*

Digital Camouflage is the wave of the future. All the Armed Forces are using it now.

This technique can be used for any color of digi camo.

What you need:

Basic airbrush set up
Shelve liner, really cheap at Wal Mart
Masking Tape
Primer, White base color, Transparent Black, Transparent White, Blue, and Clear-Coat

Here's the airbrush colors.


First Step. Prepped the mouse by priming, sanding, then I used White spray paint for the base.


Then I used the free-hand stencil I made from the shelve liner, to start airbrushing. But first let's look at how I made the Stencil.

The stencil is just random patterns cut out of the shelf liner. I took care to keep the cuts at the corners of the squares to keep the pattern looking blocked off on all the edges. Then I filled in most of the area with masking tape, once again taking care not to mess up the blocky pattern.


Then I laid down the first 2 colors, Transparent Black, then Grey (made from mixing the Transparent Black and Transparent White).


Then I did one more layer with a Blue Grey color(made from mixing the Transparent Black, Transparent White, and Candy Blue)


Then I clear coated it and viola. Here's how it came out.

I was just thinking the other day on how to do the digi camo effect. I guess I'm the dee dee dee for not thinking of if from your carbon fiber effect. Great job, +rep.

Have a +rep on me.

Commando, you have been throwing out some great tutorials recently. You are a shining example of what makes a good tutorial: clear, good pictures, good writing, the whole shebang.

Honestly, keep them coming. This one's brilliant.
