Thanks for all the great comments guys!It is good to be back...I'm really easing into it, still not sure if I'll pick up painting again (probably never in the volume I used to back in the day), but I'll most likely pull out my old masters and paint some liveries that I wanted to when I was with SGA, Vistaliners, etc. Back then we had assigned paint jobs... and although I was in charge of deciding who painted what, I was always democratic (and logical) about the selection process. For example, Daniel H was awesome at metal, so he did the bare metal planes (or most of us used his metal for our birds...like my Comair and SkyWest EMB-120's...Daniel's metal). Frank had several liveries he was awesome at, so he painted those.If you guys are up for a little background on how I got started painting......I got started painting way back when Mike B was pushing out some awesome liveries on the MD-80 (pre-SGA). At that time I was good at graphic arts, but didn't know squat about painting planes in flightsim (I can't say its hard, but it is a process to get it from a template, to the plane, and packaged to upload to Avsim). Anyway...I kept bugging Mike for a Austrian MD-80, but he was too busy to paint it and he finally got tired of me asking so he told me to paint it myself.Shocked.gif I told him if he'd give me some guidance, I sure would!It took me 3 months and more emails than I care to divulge to finally get it right. Over time of course, my skills got better, and I started to amass a collection of liveries that I could reuse on future projects. I was able to trim that 3 months down to 3 hours if I had painted that livery before. For those who don't paint or haven't tried before, what you typically do is create a fuselage master to paint on, then transfer the paint to the FS model templates. After that, as they say in the shampoo industry...rinse, lather repeat! LOL.gif The master takes the longest to get just right, but once it's done, you use it for each livery you want to paint, and after you get good at it (volume is the best teacher), viola'...mass production. Of course if you are painting a livery you've never painted before it takes a while. But once you do, you can re-use the logos on every airframe from that point forward.So that is how I got into painting. It's very rewarding when you take your own paint up for the 1st time, and really rewarding when you see others enjoying your paints. If you decide to get into it be warned though...it is very addicting, and you'll find yourself painting more than flying.LOL.gifRegards,Steve Dra
