Being a newbie I can sometimes get carried away with actually getting something to work in the game and then it's a bit difficult to remain objective. Everything I've made so far has used the blank specular found here but yesterday I mucked about with a specular for the first time so am wondering if you think it's ok or not. I'll show 2 pics, with differing lighting for comparison.
