I made an actual tutorial. Hoo!
I've been asked for metal and armor tutorials for quite a some time, and finally I did one. In part one I just talk about what I think of how to make a good design, and give some examples of that. Part 2 shows how I design and paint armor. I tried to cover lots of stuff that you could be interested in.
Hopefully this helps you! Would be awesome to know if it did. :]

Hey! I'm open for commissions! Character designs, concept art, whatever!
