Perfect Pete, Perfect. Just keep working as I have instructed you and you should wind up with a movie quality build/finish except that you don't need CGI! Thank goodness I was around to guide you through this process--LOL LOL

Positive you already know, but just in case-----There are plenty of stills and video clips out there that show iron-man's suit all beat up. Ironman II, scene at the race track in Monaco after he fights Mickey Rourke [its a GREAT scene]. But he also gets damaged in the final battle of "The Avengers" movie where he fights alien invaders. Both of these are probably way beyond what you intend to do[?] but make great references as to what the suit looks like when it is beat up. I'm sure you will take us to "school" with whatever you do, Guaranteed.

I think you can use the free program below to "edit" as needed? Its called GIMP and lots of people use it instead of paying hefty prices for Photoshop. I've never used a full version of Photoshop myself. that software was over $700 US the last time I checked and now you don't get the DVD, all you get is a download! I currently use an older version of Photoshop "Elements" that I bought for about $99 US. Does not contain nearly all the bells and whistles of PS, but way more than I care to use for my work.

Because...................Michael Jackson went through a period when he had on a lot of padding and military looking costumes.

Cheers Ted,

I did find some pictures showing the different suits pretty beaten up but I think I screwed the pooch a little bit with my weathering, I just couldn't get it to look right.

I discovered there is a basic photo editing app on my camera that allows you to alter the colour and tone as well as a few other useful features. I am still trying to work out how to use it properly but it should help me to keep things looking more like they do to the eye once I figure it out
