Battered and Bruised - Ways to “Weather” EVA Cosplay Armour & Other stuff too!

After finishing my Mass Effect armour, I wrote a tutorial series about some simple, but effective weathering techniques for cosplay.

A recent reblog alerted me to the fact that the links in these pages were broken, so here’s an index:

Thanks those of you who have messaged me to say you’ve found these useful; I hope they’ll help more people who are doing similar projects!

Screenshots were taken at 5x5 1080p tiles, making the full resolution 9600x5400 with 16Q CSAA.
These were then downscaled to between 2K and 4K resolution, depending on how I cropped the shot cropped from 16:9.

Many textures are vastly enhanced by the “Mass Effect 1 Updated/Improved Textures Mod”.
On the downside, in order to make tiled screenshots work it is vital to disable the games vignette effect. This can only be done by disabling all post-processing effects, which includes a number of lighting ones.

People, you’ve been asking for this - but I probably would have done it anyway. I feel Jane should have been featured as alternate box art from the beginning.

And here I thought I was finally getting over my obsession with this game.
