    Default 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.

    After a little research I found another guy's Technique for Digi Camo. The more the better.

    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.
