I have just finish my first skin, inspired by a artwork by Iain Wyllie. I had lot of fun doing it and learned a lot along the way. I would like some feed back/constructive critisim.

it's really much more than one could expect from his first skin! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yes, a very nice first effort!

Please make a 'marked' version. The in-game markings really don't work well with a weathered job like this one. I look forward to your future skins!

I think the dimple effect could be toned down some, Great first skin though! look forward to more of your work.

Excellent first effort!

The USAAF markings should be a darker blue as well...


Very nice overall.

Thanks for all the replies gents!

I agree the panel shading needs toning done somewhat, I had a earlier revision where it was more subtle (My wife said too subtle), I think if I go some where between it should be ok.

I`ll also look at the colours for the roundels.

On to the next one, I have a picture of a Australian Spit with a sharks mouth called "Nurse Shark" I want to try.

Cool first B25! Nicely done.

May I suggest fading the insignias?

Start by duplicating the insignias. On the duplicate (make sure its above the darker one)
lighten the insignias with a sponge brush, start at 30%, then increment higher. Once done to taste, reduce the opacity.

That makes more sense than the way I was going to do it ie start from scratch. thanks
