  1. Thank you for your nice comments. For the chipping, I use a HB pencil and a couple of water color pencils in brown color, one lighter and one darker, to do the job. All pencils need to be sharpened to get a very fine tip. Then, I start with the HB one to define the chipping shapes and patterns in a specific area, try your best not to drag the tip on the surface (unless you want to represent scratches on the surface), instead, gently touch the surface with the tip to mark tiny dots on the surface, achieve whatever shapes and patterns you want by accumulating enough of dots. After the shapes and patterns being defined, I’ll use the lighter brown pencil to dot on top of some randomly chosen HB doted areas, to mimic freshly rusted chip, and use the darker brown one to mimic aged rusted areas. patience is the key for success. Good luck on your upcoming Tiger.
  2. Thank you for your comments. Regarding to the roof issue, I think a couple of slight straight streaks starting from the border of the slop towards the front will give viewers a hint of a flat surface. So that, the distribution of color variation can be kept.
