    Red face Enginewhistle's reskins and what-nots

    Decided to show off some of my reskins and stuff here, so I made this thread

    Recently, I have been experimenting with different airbrush tips for weathering. I've really liked the results of what's been coming from my "paint" shop

    This is the first one I did earlier today. I think i'll start over and redo the weathering on this one


    Especially liked how this one turned out:

    Yes, it's JR payware. They offer a 3 pack of BNSF ES44's in different weathering types for $10. I'm eventually going to make a tutorial on my website on how I weather locos and rollingstock

    I'm going to redo that freeware hopper on weathering. It gets easy after a while. You can use an airbrush tool with different tips and paint back and forth on the model to achieve those effects (kinda like spray painting a small object to get a nice coat)

    Hi Enginewhistle,

    Don't take this the wrong way, I am not trying to put you down. I think you have the opacity about right but the brush size could be a bit bigger to give a less streaky effect.

    Cheers,

    I noticed that with the hopper. I'm going to redo the weathering so it won't be streaky like it was on the grime layer I had set up (those black streaks).

    That hopper along with the SD7 were the first weathering jobs I did, so they won't be as good as the BNSF ES44 (I had a fun time painting the trucks on it too ). But for right now, I...

    While I believe that the airbrush feature is a good start for weathering, I also like to use a separate layer, and play with the deform tool to drag the textures down.

    Yes I agree with slabay, the hopper is much better. Now you are getting the hang of it you can have lots of fun trying different effects.

    The first weathering attempt I ever did back in January:

    Finished up on weathering this along with the alpha numbers on the sides.


    Edit: Never mind. I managed to fix it.
