My first skin http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Let me know what you think. I know that the theatre (it is Africa) isn't right, but the skin is historically correct. I need to do a bit more work, esp. the nose art and making it look worn/dirty etc. Any suggestions on how to improve it would be most welcome.

Matt.

man that skin looks awesome....

i wish thier were some desert maps so we could do some desert themed paint jobs...

i would take some black brown with a real high opecity and spray around in areas for dirt and grime build up... maybe some real fine area's along the rivit lines....


but looks really good i love those desert patterns.

Looking pretty good. I did this one a while back. One good effect I found for desert skins is to make a tan layer and add some noise to it, then blur it a few times. You then put that layer over everything and adjust the opacity so it looks like the fading and dust that would happend in the desert. Also, I think the squad emblem is a little big. Looks excellent for your first skin. Keep it up, fun hobby.

"Ich bin ein Wuergerwhiner"

"We could do with some of those razor blades, Herr Reichsmarshall."
When Erwin Rommel that British fighter-bombers had shot up my tanks with 40mm shells, the Hermann G├┬Âring who felt himself touched by this, said: "That's completely impossible. The Americans only know how to make razor blades." and the above was Rommels reply.

Thanks for the feedback guys :-)

lbhskier37 - that looks great, thanks for the tip. I am going to try some ageing. dirt and weathering techniques later on. I'm also going to do it so some paint has come off, must have been pretty rough in the deserts.

ta,
Matt.
