Title: Bristol Mercuary XV/XX Engine Layer + 'Happiness is Big Bristols' fanservice
Post by: razor1uk on October 11, 2010, 07:36:16 AM
 ::) I awhile ago made engine layer for Blenheim, featuring scaled dwon and reasonable gfx editing to make a more real looking engines.
I can provide another unedited original engine pic if needed; just ask. I hope you find the layer useful.
Made using a scanner, GIMP 2.6 (but saved in .PSD format) & the book 'The Forgotten Bomber', about the rebuilding and crash of the 1st restored Blenheim.

If you wish to use this engine layer as a part of a publicly available skin or template, even if it's not for the Blenheim, YOU ARE ALLOWED TOO DO SO. So long as it is free, non-profit, non-commercial (exclueding Team Daedlos & 1C Maddox) and I am given visible 'due credit' some where on the skin it can be in a really small but readable font.
Oh, and leave a post here letting others and myself know of what, where & when the skin/template will be please.

Coming soon ...eventually, before the Metaloclypse/Ragnorock/etc, I might get round to finishing a HeS-011 fully detailed 'side on' pic.

Dang, I clicked it for a set of Bristols. Not the engines.

Whoops, forgot the 'fanservice', here you go StrykVladzimsky...

Unlike the pic below, I based the crankcase colours upon those in the book, 'The Forgotten Bomber'.

But otherwise, they might need a bit more shading around the outside fading inwards, but I think you could easily shade that a bit darker youselves, assuming the layer/layers still have the engine shading layers; I can't remember cos' I did it quite a while back. I can redo if need be...

P.S. Does anyone know of a skin 'Template' for JC's (plus TK, Rebel, SAS Team etc) Ki-44-II-Ko anywhere? ( if so, please post a link in here... SAS's Ki-44-II-Ko Shoki thread http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,8711.0.html (http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,8711.0.html))

Mmm, this needs more 'Happiness is Big Bristols' fanservice, akin to the tsundre Nakajima sub-topic methinks.

Submissions welcome, just keep it clean, with more than some clothing on & no17+ pics where you can almost see where God decided to make them so sensitive. Oh.. and it must portray/say 'Happiness is Big Bristols'.

I see, no 'Big Bristols' related posters, not even for a laugh/fun/humour....

So... here's a teaser for board gfx artist to muse over :D

Ahem, you can edit/add a shaiding to the bristol if you wish for darker 'war' crankcase & baffles paint.
