hi I-16fan,

I am trying to learn skinning and do have the same PSP 8.Can you tell me how to begin because I donot understand those tutorials.I do have voids and templates.Do I have to change it in RBG,s? and where is that.Which layertype do I need ?

well first, skinning a plane nicely is a lot of hard work but it is not so difficult but it just take forever...

well, a simple start to skin a void file is to do following:

The first thing you have to do is to copy the Void file you are about to skin.

Then you open it in PSP 8 and in the upper menu go to: "Image" then increase color depht to 16 million colors, you can also do this by pressing Ctrl-shift-0.

Now go to "layers" and then "new raster layer", then you get a box that you dont have to change anything but the Opacity, set it to about 75.

Then you select the color you want to skin your plane with on the palette.

And then you have to find a nice brush and then set the hardness, thickness, size...

Then start painting your plane.

After you have painted your plane in one or more colors, just select another color and paint your other colors on the plane.

And to learn the weathering (scratches) just look at another skin for the plane, trust me, its easy when you understand it.

I really hope this helped you. The next thing you have to do is just learn from other skins and so on... thats the way i learned skinning/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

And dont forget to turn down your colors to 256 color depht, do this by pressing Ctrl-shift-3.

if you have any questions just PM me/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

1: the brushes is on the left side menu, just select on and then some options will appear higher up on the screen.
and no, air brush is not better i dont see any differences

2: that is what we have layers for just try to paint over the lines the lines are still there but if it disapperars under the paint make sure the layer properites are on Opacity ca 75.

3: Its finished and then you have to decrease the color depht to 256 colors and save it as a BMP file.

im sorry for bad english some places, im very tired right now and i have to get some sleephttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

hi I-16 fan,

This helpt me a lot.Only one thing more; How do I add paint to the brush and espacially Grey .And when I need Blueish grey , do I need 2 layers ( one for blue and one for grey).

1: You add paint to the brush by clicking with your left mouse button at the "palette", you know the thing in the upper right with lots of different colors, and then start painting./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

2: adding grey to the brush is a little bit complicated but once you learn it, its easy/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif , what you have to do is to click at different colors at the palette and the you will see a sqare thing beside it changing color everyrtime you change color, now click on it with your left mouse button and the you will get a menu in a new window and there you dont have to understand very much/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif you only have to hold you mouse over the square in the midlle and then you will find out the rest hopefully.

3: yes! you have to have two layers to make it blueish gray, but there are other methods but i think they are more complicated.
