Hi Skinners

 

Any advice on the best technique for paintchip effects on the Wooden frame of an Albatross?

I assume you're talking about a situation where the fuselage is painted, not natural wood. Thus, you're concerned about boot heel scratches to the right rear of the cockpit, from swinging the right leg over the top from the ladder on the left side, and toe scuffs around the steps on the left side.

 

For this, I create a tan color suitable for the underlying wood. Then I draw short lines 1 pixel wide in the desired area, angled as the heel and toe would strike. I then put a gaussian blur on them, to make them look narrower, like scratches instead of gouges.
