New Dauphin repaint on the easel.

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,Doing an overall-repaint and keep the original structure (texture) visible.Is`t a challengeI cannot withstand.So, here`s a full-camouflage livery.I did not really paint , I did more some color-manipulation.No paste and copy from photos was used.Thanks to Jan for giving me the opportunity to experiment withthe "Ducknose" acm/tif.Still a lot to do on it.RegardsLeen " Flybike " de Jager ( ROTW )http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/79428.jpg

Hi Steve.As Leen say in his reply,the Irish Coastguard version has thePanther model.And besides,I have already sent the model to you via mail.You might have the same problem as me,too many files in too many folders.Not easy to keep track of everything :)Take careJanhttp://www.avsim.com/hangar/fly/dfdg/bannerjh.jpg

Hi Cord,Let me give a little explanation.When you just put "paint" on the TIF all details get lost.To keep them do this:1.Make the TIF 16 milj colors.2.Select the part you want to have another color.3.Use Gammacorrection ,in the Color-menu, and change the color.Another tip.If you want to paint a certain part of the plane and you want to knowwhere it is lokated on the tif.Load my Rainbow-tif.Now you`ll get a funny colorful plane.The color and the texture of the spot on the plane corresponds withone of the 64 positions on the tif.RegardsLeenhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/79516.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/79517.jpg

Sorry Jan I keep all my Emails in one folder each marked in different folders Jan, Feb, March and so on. I couldnt find it.I looked through our posts at the forum and have noticed that over half of them I have not recieved in my email??? I was shocked to see some of the posts as I thought all mail was getting through.Im not on the net as long now as I only use our laptop for the internet while we have work done on the house, so my emails are important to me.Im sending a message to my ISP to ask why some emails are being missed, just incase.I want to say, Jeff was looking after a friend and said what came from his heart. He knows the pain Im going through at the moment, he knows my problems, he is just looking out for me. Its nice to have a big bro looking after you :-) Steve.My Websitehttp://www.wrexhamspace.orghttp://groups.yahoo.com/group/ysomdesign/

Hi Cord.Another good tip is to use layers, this can be done with Photoshop or Painshop Pro. I have both but use Photoshop the most. Just my preference :-) I never paint onto the original tiff. If you keep each bit of paintwork you do on different layers these can be used on other repaints too (if its the same plane or Heli) http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/79527.jpg There is a slider on the layers palet on the right hand side. Move this up and down and the paint fades away. Careful manipulation can give some great results. After finished, all files can be saved for storage for use on other projects and for your aircraft you merge your layers before saving. Though it will work in Fly as separate layers the file sizes are much higher.In this example I rendered clouds to my picture from Epcot. If I move the slider up and down I can fade the clouds out. This is similar to the effect you may need when wanting the base image to show through. Though colour loss will be noticed if you take it too far. Hope this helps!If you want to know more just ask.Steve.My Websitehttp://www.wrexhamspace.orghttp://groups.yahoo.com/group/ysomdesign/
