By Sean Kane. Before the computer age, illustrators had to create metal effects like chrome using traditional methods. The classic way of creating this illusion was to paint the generic desert landscape as a reflection over the top of a grey background. This look with the blue sky, brown sand and short mountain ranges in the reflection became somewhat of a trademark feature through the 70’s and 80’s.
