Glad to see you trying this.
The texture itself is pretty good. What i would do to give it some character is to make sure your text is in its own separate layer (as it should be until the end) and use the eraser tool with a low opacity, and run the eraser through it. The underneath texture will be partially exposed below the text, and this gives the affect that the text was scratched off.
I personally do not like reflection maps, but they fit well enough for this.
I was going more for the idea of like, a brand new smoke grenade, hence the lack of scratches(there are SOME).
I dunno, i might make another one, but im not so good at scratches, the ones i did on the body and spoon i think are reasonable, but, well everywhere else just didnt work.
Oh and Devin, yeah, theres not too many things to take screenshots of =P. I will try to do a video, what should i use, fraps?
