    Hi there
    Coloring work is quite hard for me. Here is the first sample. Coloring of a hull plate.

    I have cleared my desk, bought new blades, and more glue. I am just dying to start this one.

    perhaps the part which has the number could be on a sheet by itself and can be used as per necessary, including a blank.

    You really have set the bar for us, "want to be" designers, oh so high.

    Thanks for all posts.
    I always feel so boring when think about coloring work. But after tried to learn some features of photoshop it turned to be so enjoyable thing.

    It's not matter what kind of tool you have. "Knowing how to use it" is more important. :mrgreen:

    In all honesty Kooklik, every time a see a post by you, it spurs me on to try a little bit harder. Most likely, you'll indirectly convince me to get more involved with coloring. Which is very good for me.

    Damn !! That's good !! Hard to believe it's your first attempt at colouring a model. The weathering is brilliant.

    More sample
    Added welding line to the next section of hull plate. I created a brush tip similar to electric welding pattern. Then drew along the line. The result is as below.

    This is just coming out marvelously. Such detail! And your coloring so far is superb! Are you planning to get this published commerically? (Sorry if it's been covered already in the thread).
