Twelve approvals this week, with considerable input from the artist community. Good luck to all Rust artists, old and new alike, in the coming weeks ahead.
There is a blue version of this metal chest plate skin by La Crampe that was approved some time ago, with the differences being the color and the icon in the middle of the armor--a biohazard sign instead of an oil icon. While we think the skin is both creative and high quality, it is a bit of an extra approval. But players who missed out on the earlier version get another chance to buy direct from the store, which is a good thing.
You'd have to stud this hatchet with diamonds to get it any fancier, and if anyone knows where you could buy such a thing, we'd like to know where. Not that we'd have the money. A technically strong skin that looks good, but isn't very Rusty. Nevil122 has an extensive workshop of quality skins, be sure and check it out!
Another solid graffiti skin by Estavos. Ranking somewhere in the middle of the MMPI Psychosis scale, the skin is decorated with a twisted, red-eyed skull and the word "kill" in multiple locations. Could be he means it. We also think the skin could use a little more color, but maybe that's just us.
But then there's this, in the description: Through the pain. Through the darkness. Your soul will depart in the limb. And I'm her guide.
That didn't survive the trip through Google translate so well. Estavos, you're a great artist--stick to that, avoid poetry, and you'll go far :)
VERY nice riot helmet skin by TonyAER. We almost recommended this skin about a week ago, but we thought the size of the goggles in-game was a little exaggerated. But that's about it--we can't imagine this skin selling poorly. Everything about this skin is high quality. The black leather and white plastic are highly realistic, the spiked metal studs are a great touch, and the red strip above the visor adds color and dimension. Now if only we had motorcycles in this game!
All bases can use a little brightening up, before getting pillaged by their neighbors, and this colorful hodgepodge of symbols and flags is just the ticket. Creative, eye catching, and Rusty.
The Tailor's Carpet is brought to us by, um, this guy: Боевой Петушара. This Guy is new to the workshop scene, and just scored his first approval, so we hope to see a lot more soon.
Here's a worthy skin. We covered this skin on Monday, and are glad to see it in the game. Skillful, creative, and Rusty. Get enough graffiti items and we'll start to see radioactive street gang bases in the game. If you hate that idea, well, that's what rocket launchers are for. By Estavos.
This is a straightforward, good looking AK skin by Nevil112. The metal has a very heavy and hard look to it, the wood looks natural but polished, and there's a nice rubberized grip where the left hand holds the rifle. There are some very fine stamps in the gun metal--numbers, the word claw, The ace of spades, and more. Rusty and technically quite good.
Do you think it's possible to find someone dumb enough to try and fire this thing in real life? This rocket launcher looks like it is made from a truck muffler, with parts held together by strips of cloth and a couple of leather belts. Sharp and Rusty and the same time, courtesy of Fred the Dog.
A technically excellent and rather good looking skin by V1duk4. There is some controversy surrounding the idea of glowing hot portions of skins like this one that some people just can't get over because it is deeply unrealistic. That said, a lot of players seem to like brightly glowing skins, even if they draw player hunters like moths to a flame in the dark.
Army skins are a good fit for the game, but often they need more detail, like this one. How about a pin-up girl poster on the outside? Medals, posters, photos...anything really. That aside, the metal texture is realistic, and the locker is beat-up and Rusty. Relic has a strong workshop with tons of excellent skins, most of them much more highly detailed than this one.
Here's a locker skin we can appreciate. The see-through metal mesh is an interesting innovation, and there's a few stickers on the doors to break up the otherwise monotonous gray metal. Mental Disability is one of the best workshop artists we have, congrats on another approval!
