So Another quicks paintover of a damaged variant. This one's full on crashed and in several different peices. Have been researching crashed spitfires and there aren't many spectacular pictures about. Most of them seem to be in one peice, which I guess says a lot about the plane and their pilots!

Finished my damaged textures now. This plane's taken a fair amount of flak fire aswell as some high calible rounds :p Wanted to do a version thats damaged but not destroyed first before I move onto the destroyed one. For that I'm thinking of having it plowed into the ground after loosing a wing! More to come soon...
So a quick update here, textures for my spitfire are pretty much finished, still a couple of small details to add in. Have got a variety of camo variations, I think this blue marine one is my favourite, also have desert camo and the standard green. Decided to name it Tommys' Talos, as Talos, In mythology, was a giant bronze man with wings who flew round the coasts of Ancient Greece and protected it from invaders, thought it was quite fitting. Now to start on my damaged textures...

So here's a few more WiP shot of my Spitfire. I'm onto texturing it now and I'm quite pleased with how it's going. Working with the diffuse, specular and normal maps in unison really makes texture creation easier and more flexable, allowing you to really decide how you want to get the details across. This is rendered in realtime using xoliulshader, and the maps at the moment are 2048s (always best to work bigger and then scale it down when you're done I find). There's still a lot more to do, I havent gone into dirtying it up yet and have only just started painting the scratches. More to come very soon.
