I just think you should redo the camo, as it is right now it doesn't make me think of camo but rather that somebody have spilled coffee over the whole tank or something D:

I think the contrast between the dark and light camo-colour-blotches should be lesser, plus that the blotches would be more uniform in size..



A bit like that (sorry for hueg pictarr)

THe operator is super, though :]

Yea I know what you mean :] I found some pics at google to look at and came up with this camouflage. Also changed the colours a bit.



Better or worse one might ask? :]

Cheers,

Lelle...

here's a tip for ya regarding camo...

take the tank.

color it in one tone. (i.e. remove the camo)

then make mulitple copies of said tank and brighten and darken them a few times. (using the same pallette regestries obviously)

then with say... three or four (at a push variations) you can cut out sections and paste those sections on top of the original (single colored) tank...

you can go crazy with this so be careful...

check these droids (not mine) that I camo'd up in this fashion a while back...


(I'm sure someone round here'll remember who pixelled these puppies) all I did was camo them up...  personally I prefer the angled camo... the germans invented it during ww2 and I think it's called 'splinter' these days...

Cool, thanks for tips baccaman21! I think I got the idea correct but perhaps I need to try harder :]



Better or worse? Maybe I should use bigger chunks cause it looks more like a leafy-kind-of camo now I guess.

Cheers,

Were's the operator? Get him back! :P

Was a bit bolder here with the chunks! Maybe they are still too small though...



And the operator is back in! :]

...possibly... or mayve you need to overlap them with each other a bit more...

Thanks for all the help!
