Hey Tanz, just stumbled into this thread and was immediately impressed. Awesome skin work you've done.

 

Not sure if you're taking suggestions or requests, but I saw that you reskinned the Fubuki to appear as the Amagiri—I was wondering if you have already completed (or would be able to make) a historical Fubuki skin? I know I'm going to be using her as soon as I can get to tier 8 (once I can rig a computer and actually play the game, for a start...), so having a Fubuki skin in the future would be awesome. Maybe even those of her sister ships too, such as the Shirayuki and (by extension) those of the Akatsuki-class perhaps?

 

Either way, your skins are top-notch. Keep 'em coming! :3

Thought: i think the katakana on the Hatsushimo is pretty narrow compared to the standard kana width used on most of the IJN DDs. I checked with a couple of photos off google images both historical and model and i am seeing that the kana are slightly more thicker.

 

Also : i have checked many historical photos and i seem to notice drop shadow being used on the IJN DDs, can you verify that?

 

PS: allow me to post your links to my thread that i have that seeks to compile historical recreations.

Drop shadow was used for the most part.

Hi ...
Really cool work.
One question I have for skin of Baltimore.

How did you do it with the color in the hull?
The hull has indeed 2 different colors.

What program do you use to create the skins?
Can you give as a small guide?

I also create own skins, but I have problems with the american ships with the hull.
To create the skins I use Photoshop itself.

Thanks in advance.

I really do like these custom skins that you made. I wish WG can implement something like this into the game like they did with the camouflage patterns in WoT. Example: If you don't want the Iowa as the ship name you can add the Missouri's paint job.

 

That's the one thing I kind of vaguely miss about NF: you could name your ships, and said ship sprites were so small you couldn't really tell paint schemes apart anyways.  That being said...I know that allowing people to name items whatever they want can lead to interesting results (though frankly, look at the names in an average WoT 15v15, which is amusing enough as-is).

 

I'm all for camouflage options, though.  Kinda lets you feel a bit more like your ship is your ship and not just one of a slew of Clevelands or Yamatos.

I asked about skins in chat and was immediately pointed to your thread.   Excellent work!  

Working my way down the USN DD line, so putting in a request for the USS Benson circa 1944-45 per the attached.

What does the M1 Garand and a Microwave have in common? They both go Ping when they're done.

Great job. I think You won't mind. The census is your original posts with the skins on RU forum. I think many will like your work.

Thanks everybody and glad you enjoy my work. For those that requested skins, they are being worked on. I will be adding more and just added a Cleveland skin.

Awesome work on your skins (From the SEA server here!.) Was wondering if i could request you do a skin for the Myoukou classes? If i recall, they do too had camo on them during the later years of the war. Pictures are attached below for reference: http://i438.photobucket.com/albums/qq101/shigeko88/album%2019/gakken696.jpg

I can't wait to load the new Cleveland skin after work today.  I'm currently using IM's Cleveland skin and haven't loaded your Baltimore skin in case the secondaries looked odd.  Now I can have both ships skinned without worry!  Viva la Tanz!!!

Ive got an off the wall idea for a skin, it's simple.  How about a skin on a warship with the Decepticon logo?  It would be wizard...

These are great.

 

I'd really like to see these added into the game. If a number of ships of the class of ship had specific paint styles or markings you could get say a bundle that would make your ship look just like that. This way not ever cleveland or what ever ship looks the same
