Renderworks texture for metal panels

Recommended Posts

I am looking for help creating a texture similar to the gray metal panels shown in the attached photo   image.thumb.png.3b5bec54cae86e517af26674d46861c3.png

Looks to me to be a semi-gloss or even slightly flat grey paint color or do you want those horizontal bands/reveals included in the texture.  If so, I'd use maybe three colors - one for the base color, one for the "Highlight" for the band to make it look slightly lighter and then one for the shadow that the band casts.  This would be slightly darker than the base color.  Draw it all in Vectorworks as simple 2D rectangles, create a hi-res image and then create a texture...

 

I believe there are a few examples on YouTube, etc on how to create textures.
