    So since my last camo, I decided to upgrade from paint and downloaded Photoshop CS2 which of course has been much better and while trying to learn how to use it I made this Dragon Scale Camo. As always any feedback would be great and I look forward to your comments.

    Quick update:

    First of all I realised that it looks much better when tiled more:

    Then seeing that a several camos were getting through with 4 colours I decided to try out a few different patterns with an extra colour:


    Personally I am inclined to prefer the second but some feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    I personally think the third looks best, but would tweak it so that the bright-to-dark is a bit more "randomized". Creates a bit more texture to me.

    As an aside, in your greyscale image what are you using for the fourth color value? The expected being 0%, 50%, and 100%. Are you using 25% and 75%? I ask because I personally feel most camos require four-color complexity to be truly effective.

    I'm using 30% and 65% which seems to be what the camos, that have been accepted, with 4 colours are using.

    Pretty Cool! don't we already have a scales camo in game though? the membership one?
  7. FlyingFerret New Member

    That's a good point we have this camo but I don't think there is any kind of faction specific one.
