Hi Zhuzhu! I'm also from CA.org.

How do you make the textures on the shield and armor? Is that painted or did you use a photo???

Thanks!!!

Zhu, to digital glaze, do you use 'color', 'overlay' and 'soft light' layers? Or is there another way to go from grayscale to color?

Bronze was the right way to go! I really love how he's one step away from being a bloody color. Fabulous shield, I must say.
