How to achieve this look with lines?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Been using paint.net for a few years - excellent program! I am repainting an aircraft for FSX (repainting is the process of creating aircraft textures that run in flight simulator). The paint I am trying to emulate on a different aircraft model can be seen in this photo. http://www.airliners.net/photo/Boeing/Boeing-787-9-Dreamliner/2474635/L/&sid=9e9fadcb8108e4d8f77ad7ee6c9878aa


So far it has been progressing quite nicely, however the part I am struggling with is the grey lines that run along the rear section of the aircraft. How can I create lines that look similar to those in paint.net?

Have you tried exploring custom brushes? http://www.brusheezy.com/

You can use ABRMate to convert brushes to png. http://www.texturemate.com/abrMate


You may also like this plugin to make your own lines that have "thin" ends : http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/25591-curly-lines-plugin-updated-to-v11a-19th-nov-2012/


Then try using the gradient tool set to transparency mode to fade things


Try using the eraser tool with hadrness set to 1.
