Painting chain mail is really easy and looks cool when you are zoomed out. This time I decided to make a "chain mail brush” for the purpose of this tutorial. Open a new document and draw a few "c” shapes. Make that into a brush and go to the brush controls. Click the box next to "Shape Dynamics” and under "Angle Jitter” set the control to "Direction.” Doing this will cause the "c” shapes to follow the direction of your brush. Also click the box next to "Other Dynamics” so that you can have opacity control with your stylus. First lay down one row of chain mail by painting from left to right, then you can paint the next row simply by painting from right to left. The reason we can do this is because we set the angle jitter to direction, allowing us to paint the "c” shapes in both directions without having to rotate the brush. This will let you get the basic idea down. Now go back in and pop in some highlights and darken the edges (Fig13b).

The armour on the arm is going to be handled the same way I handled the chest armour (Fig14, 15, 16 & 17a).

First paint in the basic colour, then add in the shadows and highlights. After that I drop in a texture overlay layer (Fig17b). On top of that I use the colour dodge brush to pop in some more lights (Fig17c).

Go through the same process on the legs as we have used with the arms (Fig18a, b, c, d, e & f).
