    What do you want to be told?
    He gave you a reference, either use it or find a better one. I mean there isn't some kind of scientifc method about chainmail. Its just a repeated pattern.

    I make it myself. If you know how to skin, theres no reason why you wouldn't be able to make chainmail.

    Just try shading some U's

    Yes I do use photosourcing for things like this.
    There is no point in doing so many chains by scratch.

    You copy and paste one,work on it until its flat and perfect.
    Then we duplicate it as many times as we need.

    I go by this when skinning,modeling,concepting or traditional drawing or painting.

    Patience is virtue.
    Artist are lazy people.

    You proved you are a noob the moment you posted, particularly asking how to make 'A chainmail'. So well done, and good luck.

    For the record, I am NOT a professional artist. People generally like what I do because they either have no skill or are too lazy to open a paint package.

    What are you talking about? WH wasn´t rude in the first place.. he gave you a good close-up pic of chainmail and told you to either copy or study it. To which you responed:
    I would call him helpful rather than rude, no?
