Post "Kick Ass" Skins Here

Recommended Posts

Love the default 190 repaint.  It'd be very much worth submitting it for inclusion in the next update.

 

Here's two from me.  My first effort, a red-wing LaGG.  And a wip for the green hearts.

...How can I add a picture ???

 

Nice skin thanks, got it now!

 

To add an image click 'More reply options', bottom right of the 'Reply' window. From there, you can use the 'Image' icon along the top, to link to an online image's url; or you can use 'Attach files', at the bottom, to upload an image from your hard drive.

Jaws - I LOVE that default 190 scheme - nabbed it for my, i suspect about to be very large, skin collection. This thread shows just how much the players can bring to the party. I'm amazed at the speed, too. Is it much easier than in the old IL2?

FIV - beautiful.  Post more! Make more! Upload 'em!

Parisek - that is a beauty. Question, the reflection on the tailplane - is it painted on or actually a reflection?

Attention if you're skinning for the Fw190.

 

The provided template is missing key technical parts and weathering. I've taken an original ingame skin and done my best to extract the missing parts into one layer.

Mind you have to put this layer on top of all camouflage layers, otherwise parts of it will be obscured.

 

 

Hope this is going to help some skinners out there.

I use Paint Shop Pro X7 and all these weathering layers are available in my Fw190 A3 layered .psd template.

Some weathering layers are included but by far not all. Basicly all the black covered parts on the right picture (and much more stuff) is completely missing. If you have a template with thoses layers included pls PM me if you don't mind so I can check it out (downloaded the official template twice now).

I'm on it ;)

I'll upload the skins when I get a moment.  Here's a few screens of another one, just for fun.  Somebody was bound to do a Hans Von Hammer sooner or later...  It may as well be me    :biggrin:

Haven't done anything artsy since............well, a very long time ago. Mostly pen and ink stuff. It may be time to take on some color projects. Santa brought me a couple of digital painting books for Christmas. Time to open some Luftwaffe in Color type books.

You may have turned of, by mistake, the shadow layer. It's in there.

Is there any way to increase/decrease reflectivity of aircraft skins?

Not sure yet but I am sure someone will figure it out.. I am looking forward to that polished metal layer.. I know initially I was reading the instructionbs from an ROF tutorial and it said to turn off the alpah layer.. but that is a mistake .. when you save as a DDS in PS the alpha layer has to stay checked.. otherwise the skins will lack shine.

Yeah, I just realised that all the skins I made lack that metal shine..despite turning the alpha channel on.

if it's like ROF,  the shade of gray in the alpha layer tells the game what becomes transparent, shiny or mate:

Yes it's done via the alpha channel. Basilcy you need to apply it before saving your skin so it's roughtly 50% transparent. I haven't figured out which tone of gray creates best shine yet and I'd be glad if sby could tell me :)
