We include in our top ten this week Warpunk, a new, skilled Rust workshop artist focused on armored masks. This week's number one pick: STAR chair, by Aston Andrey. We'd be very happy to see such glorious junk make it into the game!
Another tribal-ish gun from Madroce,as he experiments with the theme, this one with a cave painting motif. We like how there's many kinds of metal parts in the gun as though they came from different machines and parts, we like the wood grain, and we like the string and wire holding the whole thing together.
We can't think of anything mean to say. Great work!
StabbyMcStabface delivers an ugly, businesslike MP5 this week, complete with peeling paint, rust, and battered, bare metal. There's a cute little hornet sticker on the stock, like the cherry on top of a hot fudge sundae. Our only criticism is that the grip behind the trigger could have used a bit more work, or a better material.
We really like this metal hatchet by La Crampe. The wolf head pops right out of the blade, sharp and clear, while the handle looks old and worn. As with all skins by this artist, every detail is covered. There's a weld line on the back of the blade, and the rope grip and painted handle it covers are highly realistic.
We do wonder how desperate survivors on a tiny island could produce such a thing. Perhaps it didn't sell at Renaissance Faire and was left in a box at the airport.
The latest entry in an ongoing string of vehicle door skins by Vitalik. While he's not the only artist making vehicle skins, we think he had the original one, and they are certainly popular. This one is a sheet metal door to some kind of military vehicle with a cloth attached to the window. Since the front and the back of the door are the same, Vitalik has made certain the writing works on both sides.
We like the rivets on the edges of the door, the rusty grill in the upper left, and the metal patch applied near the center of the door. It's solid work, and we wouldn't expect anything less from this excellent artist.
What an incredible piece of junk! We must have it. This has got to be the most realistic junkyard throne we have ever seen. The graffiti, the little drawings, the legs made of different materials...all perfect. By Aston Andrey
@Facepunch: It would be cool to be able to sit in the chair, or dangle your lefts off the edge of your base...
It's been some time since we've had a new concrete barricade skin, and this one here by Krovv seems a good fit for the environment. It's got a rough, cracked concrete texture with a faded green stripe along the bottom, the obligatory bullet holes, and a lot of chips and cracks. It's a bit plain, but sometimes that's exactly what you want, and a new barricade would add a bit of diversity to the Rust island countryside.
One thing about Milho Frito skins is that while it is possible to dislike the design as a matter of taste, you can never fault the quality. Fortunately, we quite like this hoodie design, and the quality is a given. The vinyl material is convincing, and every stitch and wrinkle helps accentuate the shape and style of the garment. Good luck to number fifty-four.
If you got something to say, say it loud and proud. DeltaP42's hemp hoodie can't be mistaken for anything other than a joyous celebration of peace, harmony, love, and mind altering substances, a beacon of brotherhood in the otherwise grim world of Rust. Come in out of the cold, stranger, and join our Kumbaya circle. We're all friendly around here!
Warpunk is fairly new to the Rust workshop scene, and this week he produced a very Rusty Stalker Mask. The facial portion is an ugly, pitted metal attached to a wire mesh which peeks out here and there at the eyes and under the chin. The chin strap is a rough leather texture with good stitching, and the edges of the skull cap are frayed.
We think the leather in the skull is a slightly unrealistic texture, and the bulk of the cap could use some more detail for interest's sake, but this is an otherwise solid effort, and a good quality skin.
Fred the Dog has made a new rocket launcher skin in collaboration with Youtuber Surge. Quality is strong and the design superb. We really like the clean lines, the yellow and gray color scheme, and the makeshift wood block strapped to the front of the weapon for some reason. We have no negative criticism to offer whatsoever. Good luck firing this beast!
