**Special note to
people visiting my site, as of today January 12, 2005 I will be not
taking any paint requests. The reason for this the next 2 months I will be
finishing up the ones I have and then I start school. This Brings me to
the next part as I will be in class and working for the next year my
paints will be very limited I will try and put something up each month for
your flying pleasure. Hopefully after February 2006 I will be able to get
back to normal thanks for your time. **
Hi Everyone welcome to my internet home here on the world wide web as you
all know, I do 3d graphics for Flight simulator 2004 as a hobby. I am
using this site so you can see what I am currently working on and to
answer questions and point you the way to find my Textures. I have been
involved in this hobby since FS2000 and taught myself how to do all this
fancy graphic stuff that keeps getting more involved everyday.
A little about my self I live here in Nova Scotia, Canada, I have
been living here all my life. My profession is a advanced life support
paramedic which I have been doing for 17 years. I have worked also as a
firefighter for 7 years and I was in the military reserves as a machine
gunner for 2 years. I also worked the night and some of the recovery of
Swiss air. I live in a small town called Bridgewater which is 45 minutes
west of Halifax.
I try and come close as I can get to realism in my Textures! I do
everything by hand in my texturing, I try and stay away from the photo
real stuff as I find that is just copying a picture onto a 3d model not
actually painting it. Also it has been a policy of mine to only do
repaints of existing aircraft that actually fly or have flown. I try and
promote Canada in my endeavors and that is usually what I paint in my
planes not to say I might do one from another country but usually they
have artists that represent there countries pretty well. I do not complete
with anyone I do my own thing but I will not limit myself as someone
already did that well I do what I want so it might get done by me as well.
Techno garb ignore the next
few lines if you do not care for it.
My Texturing and Flying System consists
of a Pentium 4 3.0 gig processor with 1 gig of ram, ATI x800pro Video
Card, 160 gigs of hard drive. A 17 inch tft Samsung 173t monitor, Sound
Blaster Audigy Sound Card hooked to a Logitech kick ass sound system, and
a Saitek x45 joystick combo.
End of ignore.
Currently I am learning FSDS 2 with Donald AKA Zoren from VCDG who is a
great guy who is teaching me. When Avsim gets its new server up the downloads section will be fixed
up with direct links hopefully this will be soon. You can find my stuff on
Avsim or Flightsim.com as these are my usual upload sites just search my
name Shane Strong.
Other Programs I use for fun are Operation Flashpoint,
Lockon, Strike Fighters, Americas Army.
My texturing is done with the following: Paint Shop Pro
9.01, Adobe Photoshop, Gmax, DXTbmp, Imagetool and Sharpshooter without
these i wouldn't be able to do this thanks for all involved in these
programs. Also a special thanks to all those who have taught me or helped
me along in anyway in this Area.
