F-84E/G Thunderjet Redrawn Lines, Rivets, etc..

Recommended Posts

F-84E/G Thunderjet Redrawn Lines, Rivets, etc..


Redrawn Lines, Rivets, etc.. for the beautiful F-84E/G Thunderjet by RussoUK2004.

It can be used for SF1 or SF2.

This template is a Photoshop .psd file at 2048 pixels. It has redrawn lines, rivets and various bits. It can be reduced for those with low spec computers.

The only skin with this template is USAF Natural Metal / Aluminum.

Add your own paint, dirt, details and weathering.

If you want to make the lines and rivets darker or lighter, this template allows you to do that yourself by adjusting the opacity of the lines, rivets or any layer of this file. To use it you must have a paint program that reads/modifies .psd files.

Then you can adjust the specular, glossiness and/or reflection entries in the skin's texture.ini file to get the skin to your liking.

I use the poor mans' method of bump mapping. I don't have the needed software or skills to create real bump maps. I use two template layers: one black the other white. The white layer is below the black layer and offset one pixel up or down and one pixel left or right. Then adjust the opacity of each layer to create a 'shadow' effect. When done right it gives the illusion it's 3D.

 

Credit and Thanks to RussoUK2004 for this nifty little jet and Wrench for the colorful skins he's made for it.

 I wonder how normal Mr. Normal is.

If he's like the rest of us, I'd say pretty messed up!

I'm actually using these right now. I am QUITE impressed with the work. Thanks Geary!

Yeah, occasionally I think I get normal, but it's usually by accident.

 

When I first started making templates, it was because I wanted to paint planes.

Seems I'm not very good at painting. I usually end up REPAINTING someone else's work, such are yours, with my redrawn lines and rivets, etc.  Although, if it just takes splashing on paint with a bucket, I can do that.

Guess I'm better at making canvas for other painters.

Either way, works for me as long as we still make skinners and skins.

 

Some models, like Russouk's little beauties are great for making templates.  Well done planes.
