Here's my initial cut at adding some texture to Ramos' briefcase. The pattern turned out a little courser than I intended. I wanted to give the impression of a course-weave fabric. The effect here is interesting, but it doesn't necessarily convey anything specific.
I'll tone down the color with a glaze. And I might attempt adding a glowing emblem showing a pair of gears. That might be too busy, though, depending on how it looks when I tone down the fabric effect.
I don't know, should I just ditch the pattern and go for a simple emblem? A symbol, rather than a texture? I'm leaning towards a symbol. I like the texture, but I might save the idea for a different occasion.
