Rendering Realistic Chrome Photoshop tutorial

A lot of people were asking me how did I do the watches in photoshop so I have some time will make a tutorial. Now chrome is a little tricky to render. What you are trying to do is render reflections and reflections act very differently depending on the type of surface where the light is coming from etc. Now there is no right or wrong way to render chrome and my method is just one way you can achieve realistic chrome. Took some time to figure out but I think this is a very effective and realistic way to create chrome chrome like materials by brushes.

Dont upvote or leave any comments on the tutorial slides you will cause order of the tutorial to switch around. If you want to ad a message do so at the very bottom.

you can use any version Even Photoshop 10 or 9 can do this. All you are using is the brush tool and the layer styles which all Photoshop versions have. Enjoy guys.
