I finally completed my Escalade project, using a modified version of the EVO2 GMC Jimmy as a base and creating all new textures for it.
I made 3 trucks in all. First I made the stock body in standard black with 16" wheels, then a custom painted version featuring detailed 22" spinners, and finally a trick monster truck. This is the first time I used Adobe Photoshop for creating the graphics, and I am more than pleased with it (anti-aliasing is your friend...
) I have used it before for some layering tricks on a few ST trucks, but not masking and painting.
I also experimented with using the chrome filter in the "Eye Candy 4000" add-on to make some chrome wheels sporting chrome bead locks. Interesting tools to say the least.
I should have them all uploaded later tonight. I'm just giving them a last look-over for flaws or defects.
