I made a vector shape in Adobe Illustrator and I want to fill it with a shiny gold surface. I want that to look like just a featureless, shiny gold metal surface or to have a satin gold finish. I don’t want a rough texture. I also want the same thing in silver metal. I tried looking in google images and a few texture collections for such a tiled texture image of these things but I couldn’t find one. The software I have are 3D Studio Max 9, Adobe Illustrator CS3, and Photoshop CS3. Can someone give me any info or point me in the right direction to some resources or info on how to do this? Is there a good web site, texture graphics collection, book, or something to enable me to do this? It seems to me I should be able to render a shiny gold surface in 3D Studio Max, but I don’t know how to do that yet and I don’t know if it has that capability built in or I have to get some add-on things.
