Thanks Ron!  I'm working on a skin and I had a question.  When I am working with the template, the front of the car looks like this:



But when I view it in GTL, the text gets distorted and looks like this:



Anybody know how I can work around that?  Thanks!

You could enlarge the picture until it looks okay then work on it... but you MUST REDUCE the size of it back to the original size for it to work once completed or anytime you want to check your work out. thumbup

Thanks for the comments.  Sorry, I'm not a good enough at this, so I'll just avoid that area.  Two skins are linked below.

Thank you for the skins m8 thanks thumbup 

It's always hard to do graphics of any description where the polygons are stretched. It all comes down to trial and error in the end and sometimes the biggest critic of your work will be yourself where you think it may not be good enough... maybe it is good enough and you can always gauge the reactions of others if you show pictures of the work in progress (WIP) and see what others think.

To help you with the problems of stretched polygons and placing decals you could try a template helper that I made for problems such as these. You will be able to see with the aid of a program such as 3DSimEd just where the stretched pixels are. I've had some amazingly good results from some templates where a straight line has around 5 or more bends in it making it almost impossible to paint without the aid. It won't do the work for you though. The link will take you to the page you can download it from:

Thanks for the kind words and feedback.  That's probably true that I am harder on my work than others and good point about posting WIP for some feedback.  It makes sense that the template would stretch especially in a corner like that.  Sorry, hadn't thought of that.

I started skinning to give a little back to this community (since I've taken quite a bit) but also to improve my Photoshop skills which have been slipping.  Maybe it's time to invest in 3DSimEd because I've taken Photoshop as far as it will go (or as I can take it).

I've been impressed by many of the skins posted here (e.g., MichaelMLK: thanks for those skins; they look excellent!) and hope to improve to that level.

Thank you wiegs9. Your paintings are cool  thumbup

I see that you use the shape of the car while you paint the textures, I like that  wink

Thank you PP for the skins, but on the pictures you have displayed you can just make out on all three skins the logos from a different car. Perhaps you need a little help with skinning?

If you do, then please don't be afraid to ask for help as there are a few people here who can give instruction. yes, yes Maybe we can get you to make a perfect job of it quite easily? Very Happy

When I looked at the pictures of your skins I could just make out some writing on the rear of both skins and thought that a shadow layer of a different skin was showing through and that is why I made the comment.

Since then I have looked at the skins properly and I see that the wording is 'Panasonic' is written there and now obviously fully intentional.

Please accept my apologies for being a bit presumptive Embarassed yes, yes

I agree that there should be a little more pictures on the skin. Yes, that big panasonic on sides was by purpose.
Of course, my skins are far from perfect, i'm still learning and every feedback is appreciated  Smile
