So I've been working on a few decals for a while now. Some might be a little goofy some somber and some just kind of meh.

A Decal is either a sticker, mark or painting that helps make the ship unique in some way. I hope to help give people some more customization options!

 

But in either case here is where I shall post them!

 

I'll start with just one I am currently working on that I have dubbed 'Hope & Prayer'

Before I forget

 

Some common sizes (in pixels) of textures in a game (they are also used as decals or spray paints, i.e. Counter Strike)

 

Small:

32x32

64x64

128x128

 

Medium:

256x256

512x512

1024x1024

 

Large:

2048x2048

4096x4096

8192x8192

 

Decals normally fall under the medium or small range though. So if you plan on making your own please keep the scaling in mind.

Also DO NOT SAVE YOUR IMAGES AS .JPG/JPEG!

Save them as .PNG at the very least.

For one thing .png files can save transparency.

Also they tend to hold visual fidelity far better.

It is the reason all of my comics have gone from .jpg to .png over a year ago.

There could be decals if the shape ribbons for the different charities, just change the colors.

I'm not sure if Descendent Studios wants to get involved with charity donations, where part of a decal funds goes to Descendent Studios and part to the charity the ribbon represents.

So I streamed some of my work on twitch and let people in on how I make some of my drawings. Here is the current state of the decal!

Okay! I got the Wings and pendant drawn in and all the base coloring done.

My next steps will be to add shadows, highlights and add transparency to the background.

 

Also cool to see people coming up with ideas already!

Finished with the coloring, added a different kind of halo, put some basic shading in and added a drop shadow. Also did the transparency.

 

Here it is in 2048x2048

Beautiful work Peas, you've got quite a bit of talent showing thru in these.

 

Have a bunch that I've been making for SC, primarily trying to stay with the "Victory Girl" WW2 nose art style. Tend to build/render them in DAZ3d, then PS in the text etc. Have a bunch more underway as well, but also open to ideas.

Yeah, @ripptide I just use mspaint for the images then add minor effects and resize in GIMP.

Plus nice work!

Maybe a cartoonish person with a mask that resembles a ship cockpit, armor, and drill hands. Saturday morning cartoon charater.

 

Kind of like they would use to draw kids in with cartoon propoganda.
