heres a tip, make the weave slightly smaller, and before you trim it, use a distort>twirl filter on it to give it a slight curve. it looks more realistic that way...and darker lighting and higher contrast looks great on cf

francis thats amazing, if you can tone down the gloss. It would be perfect. Or maybe bring down the contrast.

don't trip.

That angle is just hard to begin with.
CF only works well on certain picture angles

you might want to go with a smaller weave but you're definetly getting there.

Also, when doing Carbon Fiber, you should make sure to use the Mutliply function in the Blending Options.

Double click on a layer >> Blend Mode >> Multiply
