Show us your liveries for next season.

I need a new mouse so thanks for the tip!
Still getting my head round the way of working but on my 2nd attempt at that Porsche was about 2 hours (3-4 before). Already made the yellow/black design in 2d and applied it in the same way as your camo.
Did the Cobra tonight in a few hours as well.
Is certainly going to speed up team skins. Got lots of designs I have wanted to try that aren't possible in 2d.

Decided to do the Tatuus series. Went a European F3 direction even though it's not the Dallara, close enough though. The side stripe might be better further back but I didn't fancy aligning it all up, the map's laid out a bit funnily and I haven't taken the time to get into this 3D painting business

We all have to start somewhere.
That's a great job on a 2d template

This was one of those cars i was dreading in 2d because of the curves.
This pictures shows how 3d painting comes into its own!

I haven't done this method in a long time, but one of the really cool things you can do with Mudbox/Photoshop is export your current camera position to a PSD, then paint right on top of the 2d image created, then re-import it back to Mudbox from the same camera position as a stencil. Not sure if that would have made the above example easier or not, but it's a really cool option. Especially if you want to do some doodling using better line art tools found in Photoshop. Check out the first part of this vid:

Thats a very cool feature and one i can see coming in handy when making new stencils. For the cobra already had the generic stencil made. Just a few bits to tidy up and make it fit.

Also the 2 shape stencils you use come in so handy. I looked at them and though nah i'll never use them but the are so use full for tidying bits up.

'F' gets used a lot for focusing the camera.

Thanks. Been making my own AC skins since release, and have been painting in general since '04 I think. I just haven't bothered with the 3D stuff. If the map is good enough 2D is no problem.

How do I upload new version of a skin? I did some minor changes to my Lotus, and it shows fine on my end, but on YT it's still the old one. Do I need to create a whole new one or...? Ingame app says that my skin is fine.

Sometimes it can take a few races for it to update. If not raise a post in the bugs forum and srs can look into it.

This is the thread you want to take a look at for your particular issue:

The trick is to simply make a full copy of your current skin folder, delete your old one, and rename your new one to the correct name. This definitely works (I've done is dozens of times now).

Thank to the both of you. I'll do the date trick next time I use them.
