- Any chance for a .... tutorial? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif I'd like some tips on the
- method you're using to get that shiny metal surfaces
- in Photoshop.


Adlabs tutorial at Mudmovers tells a lot about how to do it.

Since he based the P-40 on my (dirty) aluminium template which also is at il2skins.com, I can tell a few things more.

Adlabs uses grey and white to make the shiny effect, which works fine. But, like Hammerd, I used a blueish look for the upper surfaces fading out to white and grey at the fuselage sides. For the bottom surfaces I used a beige color also fading out to the fuselage side.

Look at my template to see how that is done:
http://www.il2skins.com/?action=display&skinid=3230

What Leadspitter does to this is adding many highlights and shades at every panel to get the polished effect.

To make the template as small as possible, we merged MANY layers to one, but every color of the aluminium effect is done on a seperate layer.

Basicly there are two ways to make highlights: Make a rough shape and use gaussian blur (works well with large area's) or spray them.

Since leadspitter works within panels: here is a little tip to draw within the lines /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif Select one panel at a time and make your highligh or shade effect, then move on to the next.
Do not worry that you made it too thick, you can adjust the overall transparency of the layer to get the right effect (see the layer for the panelshades in my template)


About the PSP question: True, this template does not work with PSP. Two of the layers have the emboss effect on them, PSP has problems working with those effects.
