Seventeen approvals this week, all of them quality. Be sure and check out the Plague Doctor and Sleazy Rider--fantastic work on both of those skins.
This excellent hide and leather shirt by Cuntbucket won approval yesterday, which makes it the first hide shirt to win approval in the game. Now you can be poor in savage style. There is a kilt that goes with it to make a set, hopefully it too will win approval soon.
Here's an example of a fine large wood box skin that's distinctive, yet general purpose. We like the aged and battered appearance--looks like water damage--and the small details, like missing screws or the tiny skull on the latch. A Rusty yet handsome addition to your base, by Mental Disability.
Fred the Dog won an approval with this Doomwing Crossbow. It's got dragons painted on either side over well polished, but worn wood. There's also some arrows drawn on top to let you know where to put the bolt, in case you can't figure that out.
We like the name, and it's altogether a solid effort, but we would hope to see a bit more detail in skins from this excellent artist in the future.
What an awesome mask! One side's metal, the other leather, perhaps stretched over some underlying metal--it's hard to tell. The leather extends over the head and to the back of the mask and is really quite creepy. If someone knocks on your door wearing this things, you can be sure he ain't selling pizza. By Relic.
An overwhelmingly popular skin this week, the Plague Doctor takes an otherwise unloved skin and turns it into something truly disturbing. Sane and civilized people do not make or wear such things, but savages who kill without mercy or reason do. Excellent and highly creative work by DeltaP42.
An earlier variant of this jacket (It's actually a burlap shirt) appeared in the workshop awhile back, and then this version was published a few days ago. The artist, StabbyMcStabface says he removed the patches, improved the undershirt, and roughed up the leather. We think he did an outstanding job and earned a well deserved approval.
The Aircraft Parts Rocket Launcher, by Milho Frito, does a good job of looking like it was pried off an airplane or perhaps a hyper aggressive black helicopter. The combo of pre-apocalyptic machined parts and primitive ingenuity make for a satisfying and very Rusty skin.
Although they offer no special protection in the game, these plated boots certainly look as though they should. We like how the plates are inexpertly hammered and attached to the boots with welded studs and leather straps, and seem a little thin. Relic has a few other armored skins in his workshop, although none are quite as well developed as these boots.
